MOORIS & COMPANY FABRICS
William Morris had a bold philosophy when he began his company over 150 years ago – “I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few or freedom for a few”. Mr. Morris believed he was not just creating home furnishings, but pieces of art that would gain value each year. He was designing and manufacturing items that would stand the test of time. Such high standards and quality still drives Morris and Company today.
William Morris created his earliest textile collections with hand printed designs manufactured in his South London workshops. Featuring natural dyes that aged into even tones, these hallmarks of sophisticated craftsmanship are what drive William Morris & Company today. Their archive contains an amazing number of patterns that staff designers can reproduce or re-create to formulate bold new styles. Their Lines strive to bring a balance between the elegance of the past and the innovation of the present.
William Morris was a 19th century renaissance man. He was a philosopher, artist, political thinker, and most importantly one of the most outstanding designers. In 1861, he joined forces with friends and formed the home furnishing company Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company. Over the next century and a half, Morris and Company has maintained a passion for interior design that is unmatched in the industry. Today, William Morris is associated with Walker Greenbank PLC, the foremost luxury interior furnishings company for the consumer market.
