A beautiful floorcloth that incorporates classical imagery. This stunning floorcloth is based on a pattern by the iconic British designer, Christopher Dresser, from his book Studies in Design, c.1875. The palette for this piece is based on a captivating Instagram image of a bedroom with peach, gold, salmon, and copper tones. The use of metallic copper on top of the salmon-colored motifs makes the Greek Key design appear to come forward or recede depending on how light falls on the floorcloth. This pattern masterfully integrates Greek Key, geometric, floral and stylized Fleur de Lis motifs into a compelling design. It is rare to have a Greek Key element that is not part of a border design or, occasionally, in an all-over design.
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.
