1950s-designed Honesty Rug from John Lewis

This Honesty Rug from John Lewis continues the on-going trend for companies going back through their archives and re-issuing designs. 

If the resulting products are as attractive as this rug, long may the trend continue! It's based on a 1953 design by Mary White, originally called 'Coppice' (I'm not sure why they changed the name). It fits in well with many of the designs being produced today, showing black outlines of plant forms against a charcoal and yellow colour scheme.

The rug is hand-tufted, costs £450 and should hopefully still be looking as attractive in another 57 years.
