William Morris was a British textile designer, poet, novelist, and artist, among other things. He is considered to be the father of the British Arts and Crafts movement, with many of his more notable works created in the mid to late 19th century. His style was distinctive and featured bold floral patterns in vibrant colors. This magnificent arts and crafts design rug is a vintage area rug that was woven in India that was inspired by his works.

This rug emulates the style of William Morris with its bold designs and beautiful colors. It is a large size area rug with a formal quality. It would make a beautiful addition to a Victorian home with hardwood floors and a large fireplace. It would also add a touch of authenticity to an Arts and Crafts home. You could use it to add a point of contrast to modern décor, too. Shades of blue and pink are popular color combinations this year, and this rug has an abundance of them.

This rug would make an excellent foundation for a conversation area or formal dining room. It makes a grand and elegant statement in the space.
