William Morris and the Arts & Crafts Home

William Morris and the Arts & Crafts Home


In the history of the decorative arts there has never been another designer who has achieved such lasting impact. While lamenting the excesses of mass-production, he set up the firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company. Soon it was producing a range of goods, from hand-woven tapestries, carpets and printed textiles to stained glass, metalwork and furniture. What the company offered was quite simply a way of life. 

Now available in paperback, Pamela Todd’s book celebrates William Morris’s genius, presenting a thorough overview of his life and career, while setting out his guiding principles so that a modern audience can recreate the Arts & Crafts style in their own homes.

A series of case studies explores six contemporary houses – from a modern London townhouse to a traditional Arts & Crafts home in Massachusetts – that have followed and adapted Morris’s dicta, brilliantly demonstrating how the style can be applied to our environment today.

The book concludes with a comprehensive style-sourcing section, as well as a gazetteer of places to visit for inspiration.
