William Morris

Turning crafts into art

A leading figure in the 19th-century English Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris is perhaps most famous for his beautiful wallpaper – which he is said to have designed when he was unable to find wallpaper he liked enough to decorate his own home with. He also created a wide range of artwork, from drawings to stained-glass windows.

William Morris paintings are a popular feature of the Pre-Raphaelite era, while his line of furnishings is thought to be inspired by medieval styles. Few textile designers and crafters have achieved the same level of fame within the art world, which suggests just how special William Morris art is. To find your favourite pieces, simply browse through our collection of William Morris prints and brighten up your home with some unique art.

From wallpaper to stained-glass windows

You’ll find a range of techniques displayed in this selection of William Morris pictures, demonstrating just how multi-talented he was! Fans of William Morris wallpaper won’t be disappointed, with a range of gorgeous designs and colours to choose from. A print of ‘Blue fruit’ or ‘Pomegranate’ wallpaper would look wonderful in a room decorated in a contemporary style, thanks to its on-trend use of orange and a beautiful vintage blue background.

‘Single stem’ wallpaper has a more traditional feel to it, with a colour palette of rich browns and greens that you could imagine hanging in a historic castle. For something a bit different, the bright colours and angelic scene in his stained glass window, ‘Angel with a pipe’, would look amazing hung in the stairwell to create your own cathedral-inspired vibe.

Find the right material for your prints

With a range of textures to be found in our William Morris collection, it makes sense that you can choose from a range of materials for your print as well. His textile wallpapers match well with stretched cotton canvas to create an authentic museum finish.

If you have chosen a print of a stained-glass window, what could be better than pairing it with glossy acrylic glass to enhance its shine? Prints with a high proportion of white in their design look fantastic printed on lightweight Forex foam board. And the most cost-effective option is our high-quality photo paper, which gives your William Morris work a great finish at an even greater price!
