Product Description

In collaboration with fellow members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, William Morris (1834–1896) founded a decorating firm in 1861—Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Employing preindustrial techniques, the firm produced a wide range of domestic crafts, including stained glass, furniture, textiles, and wallpaper. The possibility of producing inexpensive, handsome wall coverings squared with his socialist convictions, though all too often he found himself “ministering to the swinish luxury of the rich.” Nowadays, the waning of the influence of modernism has led to a revival in the use of wallpaper, and Morris’s designs, no longer expensive, are widely available.
