My previous post was about Chinese fabrics, but I prefer these antique designs, purchased recently at auction in London. They include original Liberty of London Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts designs (left) and William Morris's furnishing fabric Strawberry Thief patented on May 11, 1883 (right) and Willow (upper right). For Strawberry Thief, Morris had architect Philip Webb draw the birds in the design.
A couple of years ago I bought an English Arts & Crafts chair at the Marches des Puces at Porte de Clignacourt in Paris. A talented ebeniste restored the chair to its former glory. As befitting the period, the chair was reupholstered in Morris's Strawberry Thief. The extra Strawberry Thief fabric will be used for a tablecloth or for pillow covers.
