What are our most popular tapestries? Would a list help to guide you about which will most suit your home setting? Should this be an objective list chosen from our QuickBooks reports or a subjective list decided by degrees of customer liking?
Our tapestry website does have a category of best selling tapestries so this is a good starting point. I will edit it in order to present just one tapestry design from each of the major categories in our collection.
The Medieval section includes two very popular sub-categories: The Lady with the Unicorn tapestries and the Bayeux Tapestry. However the most popular design by far is The Knight Templar, available in two sizes.
William Morris dominates the Arts and Crafts section by his influence as well as his designs. The smallest version of his Tree of Life tapestry is our most popular tapestry overall. Personally, I much prefer the larger finely woven sizes.
Art Nouveau wall tapestries have grown in popularity in recent years, focussing on the works of Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt. It is not surprising that the latter’s Kiss strikes a chord with many people.
Floral tapestries range from traditional bouquets and still lifes to contemporary-looking botanicals and some garden scenes. Top of this wide range is Rosa Gallica (my wife and I enjoy one in our dining room paired with FL195 Papavera Somniferum) which is from the early botanical illustrator Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840).
For Old Masters paintings now available as tapestry wallhangings The Girl with a Pearl Earing by Vermeer is a delight. The Belgian weavers have created a most satisfying reproduction. Such pieces are heirlooms of the past for the future.
Although scenes like the Lake Como one above sell most from our range of contemporary tapestries we should draw attention to a well received selection of contemporary floral designs like Because Of You.
Lastly, our Miscellaneous section is a pot pourri including animals, oriental, antique maps and nautical tapestries. Consider the Grand Harbour, finely woven in wool and cotton with an antique faded look which gives much character to a room.
We hope this selection has been a helpful guide. All are generally in stock for immediate shipping.
