House of Hackney William Morris CollectionJanuary 09, 2018
Received somewhat dubiously during his time, Morris’ Wallpaper and textile designs were extravagant and baroque.
Awash with color, intricacy, and undulation, Morris’ designs were considered a bit much for the average Victorian home.
Flying in the face of the maxim that says, “A wallpaper should be a background,” Morris’ work takes center stage—and House of Hackney’s recapitulations celebrate their larger-than-life aspect.
Offerings include three of Morris’ most iconic designs: “Artemis,” “Seaweed,” and “Acanthus,” each of which acknowledges the innovative aesthetic: “paying homage to the iconic designer by playing on the heightened psychedelic and non-conformist design he became known for.”
