"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." This is a quote from the great designer William Morris, who was born 182 years ago today.
Morris is recognised as one of the most significant cultural figures of Victorian Britain, and was instrumental to the Arts & Crafts Movement. As well as a poet and novelist, some say he was and still is one of the most inspiring and fabric/pattern designers of his time.
