Hanging tapestry in your home not only brings interior beauty, warmth and ambiance but also a sense of history, and the ranges you can find in our House Gift Shop feature stunning pieces from the work of Morris and Co.

During the 18th century, the decor of Castle Howard was modernised by the 9th Earl and Countess of Carlisle, with brightly coloured wallpaper prints by their friend William Morris. Today only one example survives in the House Gift Shop, formerly the Daisy School Room, were the Daisy print wallpaper can be seen. Read more about Morris and his connection to Castle Howard in our Blog. Our recent Free Members Talk : The Pre Raphaelites and Castle Howard, gave a behind the scenes glimpse into how pre-Raphaelite designs were used throughout the house and gave our Members access to the archive collection with its wealth of paintings, textiles, wallpapers and personal correspondence between the friends.

In the Long Gallery in the house you can see four large tapestries by the Flemmish artist , John Vanderbank ,made in Soho in London in 1800’s, each depicts one of the four seasons. William Morris himself considered tapestry “the noblest of the weaving arts” and the exquisite examples available in the House Gift Shop would look perfect on any sofa or wall.
