'Fruit' or 'Pomegranates' is one of a group of three wallpapers that Morris designed in Red Lion Square a year after founding 'The Firm' in 1861. It was perfect inspiration for a series of simple cushions that capture the sunny, romantic spirit of the original wallpaper.
Lemons, oranges, peaches and pomegranates would all have been seen in the conservatories of the larger Victorian houses and Rossetti painted many famous portraits of Morris' wife Janey holding a pomegranate.
