Robert Adam replaced Lancelot ("Capability") Brown as architect to the sixth earl of Coventry, whose country seat was Croome Court, near Worcester. With its ornamented wheel molding and garlanded trophies, the ceiling of the Tapestry Room, designed by Adam in 1763, is an example of his vigorous early style.The tapestries on the walls and the seating furniture were woven in the workshop of Jacques Neilson at the royal Gobelins manufactory, Paris. The medallions, after designs by François Boucher, portray scenes from classical myths symbolizing the elements. The borders were designed by Maurice Jacques. Commissioned in 1763, the tapestries were installed in 1771.
