Using a smaller version of stencils created from a 19th-century wallpaper ceiling pattern and a subset of them, Ariel Grace created a small floorcloth. The border of circles creates a frame for the whimsical interior flowers.

This stunning design is based on a ceiling pattern from the 1889 Robert Graves Co. Wallpaper Catalog.  Ceiling patterns are often great rug patterns -- they are non-directional and have solved the “corner problem."  With ceiling designs, the corners are the most elaborate part of the design.  In this case, the design proved to be a beautiful pattern to use as a floorcloth.  The border of circles creates a frame for the whimsical interior flowers. 

Each floorcloth is created with the finest cotton canvas, backed with a non-slip padding that is covered by a layer of water-proof vinyl, finished with multiple layers of polyurethane, and then topped with a wax coating.  They are durable, beautiful, and non-allergenic.

A floorcloth is a hand-painted canvas rug that has been treated to last a long time.  The popularity of floorcloths dates back to the time when Europeans first settled in America.  Floorcloths were in vogue throughout the 18th and 19th centuries but were gradually replaced by synthetic floor coverings.  However, floorcloths have made a great comeback due to the increasing popularity of hardwood floors and the interest in handcrafted art for home decoration.
