Our tastes in home decor unquestionably change over the years. (When I remember my youthful orange phase this is surely a good thing.) So my tastes in tapestry art have developed too.
We first started selling tapestries in 1994 at a time when medieval and William Morris tapestries dominated the market. Now, the available range has increased with so many more styles, both traditional and contemporary.
My wife and I have just placed our home on the market so are spending much time discussing the nature of our future home and its interior decor. We can decide on very little but know that a favourite tapestry or two will definately be included. So what might these be? We might select one of the bright modern Simon Bull tapestries in the previous post since we love their colourful strengths but we still love many designs from the past.
However we sell many of that so let’s enjoy something a little less familiar. It really should be timeless to fit in a traditional home in a changing world and conform to our changing tastes. So … a William Morris tapestry it has to be. But which?
My favourite tapestry (well, today anyway) is toss-up between The Birds or The Tree of Life. I think the latter wins:
My favourite tapestry really is timeless, has many small details to enjoy and is finely woven.
Now to find our favourite home for it!
