Brand Research – William Morris


William Morris was an English textiles designer,
his name and reputation are indissolubly linked to wallpaper design, but there is a tendency to over-estimate the influence he had in this field, at least in his own lifetime. In fact, despite his much repeated belief in ‘art for all’, his wallpapers, like most of the products of Morris & Co., were hand-made and expensive, and consequently had a relatively limited take-up

I have always loved this designer and his work. Some of his famous prints can be found on things from cups and curtains to curtains and wallpaper, his style is unique and very classic. I am mainly interested in some of his amazing bed covers, throws and pillows. I feel it is also tasteful for what every the age as his designs vary in colours and styles.

The smaller scatter cushions look good together on a sofa or bed, I love them and the shabby chic style is huge at the moment.
