In 1861, William Morris founded the British heritage brand Morris & Co. to showcase his handcrafted fabrics, furnishings and home décor with designs heavily influenced by nature’s flora and fauna. Today, these designs—and those they inspire—continue to deliver uplifting pattern and color to decorative elements of all kinds.
