Tulip & Rose was designed by William Morris in 1876 and could be purchased through his shop in Oxford Street, London. It was produced as heavy triple woven curtaining - perfect for draught-proofing large Victorian houses; the dramatic colouring also gives visual warmth to a room. Original fabrics are at Standen, the McCord Museum in Montreal and the Art Institute in Chicago.
