The Future of Morris & Co.
The Morris & Co. design archives were later purchased by home furnishings manufacturer, Arthur Sanderson & Sons. Both company’s archives sit under the Style Library umbrella, part of the British furnishings company, Walker Greenbank.
Today, Morris & Co.’s traditional block-printed wallpaper is still available on request and costs upwards of $327 a roll. In contrast, the now machine-produced archive collections come in at a much lower price of around $50. Although affordable, it seems Morris’s life-long dream of handcrafted design for all is sadly yet to be fully achieved.
