Compton Cushion

Compton Cushion

Needlepoint kit

From: Beth Russell of Designers Forum

Morris & Co produced the beautiful Compton design in 1896, as part of the furnishings for Compton Hall, Wolverhampton.
Although it was designed by his colleague Henry Dearle, it shows all the characteristics of William Morris himself, with rich colours, exotic flowers and meandering leaves. Wallpapers and fabrics featuring the Compton design are still produced by Arthur Sanderson & Sons of London - the perfect way to complete your decorative scheme.
Beth Russell has adapted this rich repeating design to needlepoint. In order to give the rug a centre, the design needed to be slightly adjusted and then reversed. The kits are true to the original colours, with three shades blended in the background to retain its soft warm tone. The plain black border serves to frame the intricate design.
Cushion CANVAS: 12#/in Zweigart White Mono De Luxe, 20x26" (51x66cm). DESIGN: 15x21" (38x53.5cm). STITCH: Tent/Basketweave. WOOLS: Appleton tapestry for the design, crewel for the background.
