Robert Adam designed the Tapestry Room and other interior architecture after he replaced Lancelot ("Capability") Brown as architect to the sixth Earl of Coventry, whose country seat was Croome Court, near Worcester. Designed in 1763, the ceiling of this room, with its ornamented wheel molding and garlanded trophies, is an example of Adam's vigorous early style.The tapestries on the walls and on the seat furniture were woven at the Royal Gobelins Manufactory, Paris, in the workshop of Jacques Neilson. 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, these tapestries were installed in 1771.
