William Morris was an artist and designer who was a close associate of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and leader of the British Arts and Crafts movement.  His company, Morris & Co., produced medieval-influenced textiles, stained glass, wallpaper, and other decorative arts.  Many Pre-Raphaelite artists, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones produced designs for Morris’s firm.  Morris’s designs were inspired by plants and nature, medieval tapestries, and illuminated manuscripts.  Their most popular prints featured stylized flower trellises, fruits, and birds. Fans of Morris’s prints can still get wall paper and textiles in a variety of styles, including fabrics from Liberty of London.
