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. His fabric and wallpaper designs remain as popular today as they have ever been. We are pleased to include fabrics by Morris among the collections available from Fabric Gallery and Interiors.
William Morris in the 21st Century
In 1861, with a group of friends, he started a decorating business providing beautiful, hand-crafted 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.
Best known for wallpaper and fabric designs, over the next 150 years, the company became known simply as Morris & Co. Eventually, they were taken over by another household name in home furnishings, Arthur Sanderson & Sons.
