Today, William Morris' designs are more widely appreciated than ever, and his profound and radical ideas about taste, style and function continue to inform modern interior design.
In the history of the decorative arts there has never been another designer who has achieved such lasting impact.
In William Morris and the Arts & Crafts Home, Pamela Todd celebrates Morris' genius for decoration and design and shows how he envisaged and implemented schemes for interiors in his own homes and those of others, passionately believing that beautiful surroundings promoted creativity and happiness.
A series of 'Case Studies' explores six contemporary homes - from a modern London townhouse to a traditional Arts and Crafts house in Massachusetts - that have followed and adapted Morris' guiding principles in a variety of contexts, in order to demonstrate how the style can be applied to our living spaces today.
With a comprehensive style-sourcing sections, including lists of suppliers both in the US and UK, as well as a gazetteer of places to visit in living with Arts and Crafts style.
