THE WILLIAM MORRIS
William Morris (1834-1896) is regarded by some as the greatest designer and one of the most outstanding figures of the Arts and Crafts Movement. He was also a poet, artist, philosopher, typographer and political theorist. In 1861, with a group of friends, he started the decorating business Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. providing beautiful, handcrafted products and furnishings for the home. Morris was motivated by the desire to provide affordable ‘art for all’ and driven by his boundless enthusiasm, the output of the company was prolific.
Today, as custodians of the original company founded by William Morris, Morris & Co. embodies the aesthetic and ethos of this important cultural icon, by ensuring his legacy lives on in peoples’ homes, through beautifully crafted wallpapers, fabrics and accessories. Inspiration for today’s collections is taken from the Morris & Co. archive and also from all aspects of Morris’s life, work and influences. These references inform the new designs that sit alongside much-loved classics, making them relevant for the current day, whilst maintaining the artistry and charm of the originals. Created with great care, the dedicated Morris & Co. design studio ensures that craftmanship is maintained throughout every collection, reaching from the re-edition of iconic patterns to new hand-drawn interpretations.
