Textile designer, writer and social pioneer, William Morris and his work have long been associated with the V&A.
In 1865, his company was commissioned to design the West Dining Room at the museum, which features early examples of a number of the organic patterns that would make his name. Born in Walthamstow in 1836, Morris was captivated by nature from childhood, spending much of his time exploring Epping Forest and the surrounding countryside.
These themes informed much of his textile design, and his mastery of pattern ensured an enduring appeal.
