'Strawberry Thief' is one of William Morris' most famous designs. He was inspired to create the original fabric after watching thrushes stealing strawberries from the kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Oxfordshire. This enduringly elegant design has been re-coloured in a striking crimson colourway and printed onto 300 thread count cotton percale. The main design is complemented with a delicate willowbough pattern on the reverse. Layer the bed with a co-ordinating quilted throw or the Woodford Plaid wool blanket. A linen mix cushion embroidered with delicate motifs of flowers and fruit within a scrolling trellis is a beautiful addition to the bed.
