Design Example: William Morris "Larkspur"
Morris was a huge part of the Arts and Crafts movement, Medieval patterns were a key influence in this movement. William Morris was partially curious about it and visited northern France to look at the great gothic cathedrals. The medieval world is a fascinating part of English history. His designs are successful because as they are clear, and do not dissemble, they are intended to decorate flat surfaces, and I think they bring them to life. This is an example of fine English decor.
