Description

Recognisable designs from famous turn of the century artists are cleverly translated into fabulous cross stitch patterns. The Japanese-influenced Bamboo, Blossom and Birds by Tiffany glows from a needlework box, and Chartes Rennie Mackintosh's classic stylised rose appears on elegant cushions, a rose lady picture and trinket pot lids. Other projects feature Walter Crane's delightful flower ladies worked as a set of pictures and Alphonse Mucha's stylish 'Champagne Lady' raising her glass to the coming century. The William de Morgan inspired rug and bolster cushion are richly coloured, the peacock design reminiscent of his Persian-style ceramics, while Gustav Klimt's embellished gold pictures are interpreted as a dressing table set. Full colour computer-generated charts are provided for each design and the step-by-step making up instructions mean it couldn't be simpler to bring the style of this timelessly-popular period into anyone's home.
