Design for Trellis wallpaper (1862)

Morris & Co., William Morris (1834 - 1896), Philip Webb (1831 - 1915)

This is the original design for Trellis, the first wallpaper designed by William Morris, but the third to be printed (Daisy and Fruit or Pomegranate being the first and second to be printed). The design was based on the rose trellises in Morris's first house, the Red House, Bexley Heath, Kent. The birds were designed by Philip Webb (1831-1915), Morris friend and the architect of Red House.
