|Modern Tapestry for chair coverings, designed and woven by W.M. Baumgarten & Co. |
-- an unusual combination of rich coloring with whimsically decorative designs.
This is extra exciting because we have been debating about what to do with our what-we-thought were non-period tapestries; we bought them over 10 years ago, when we were going for a more Victorian decor. We had thought maybe we would let them go after the remodel, but were reluctant to because they looked so good with the Craftsman colors (and we like them, of course). Now—woo hoo—we have evidence that Stickley approved of this choice!
This will probably send us more in the direction of the English Arts & Crafts movement (William Morris, et al.) in our decor.
