Peacock and Dragon, designed in 1878, was one of Morris's favourite designs. The formal pairing of birds and dragons was partly inspired by historic Italian silks, though the colour scheme also echoes Islamic art. Morris thought all designers should take inspiration from the past but using their own inventiveness to avoid pastiche.
We also sell this cushion cover as a complete cushion with an inner feather pad.
