This lovely, understated, organic pattern made up of floral elements that combine to create circles, is based on an original linoleum pattern from about 1910 or so. We are completely charmed by the pattern and look forward to exploring it in many different colorways and treatments.
This pattern is based on a series of classic European stencils from the early 1900s designed for ceilings. Great ceiling designs are often great rug designs. The scrolling pattern and floral motifs are lovely and the set includes a center medallion, corners, and side stencils all incorporating the same decorative elements.
This pattern is based on a tin ceiling design from the Wunderlich Ceiling Company's 1912 catalog. Wunderlich was an Australian company that produced a fabulous array of tin ceiling designs, many of which are adaptable to rug design. The examples of floorcloths shown here always use the central element of the wonderfully misshapen squares and art nouveau floral design, and then all or some portion of the other elements, depending on the size and shape of the floorcloth.
