William Morris Designs, Boxed Laser-Cut Note Cards

About the Artist

William Morris (1834–1896) was a British designer and writer associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired by the medieval past, Morris established a decorative arts firm in 1861 with partners Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, and Edward Burne-Jones that aimed to erase the distinction between the fine and applied arts. In 1875 Morris reorganized the company under his sole direction as Morris & Co. The firm produced tiles, furniture, embroidery, stained glass, printed and woven textiles, carpets, and tapestries for both ecclesiastical and domestic interiors. In the last decade of his life, Morris founded the Kelmscott Press for the production of high-quality, hand-printed books.

Description

William Morris’s golden rule—“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”—stands the test of time, as do his floral designs from more than a century ago. His patterns for wallpapers and textiles represent turn-of-the-century elegance, and many are still produced today. Based on those floral patterns, these laser-cut notecards represent classic Morris design, distilled into 21st century minimalism.
