Summary

As a Philosophy and a design ethos, the Arts and Crafts Movement has been much studied and admired. But a William Morris tapestry or a William de Morgan tile were not just opportunities for artistic expression, a Stickley chair not a mere exercise in design: they were made as integral elements of a complete home.
Wallpapers, fabrics, furniture, glass and finely crafted objects were arranged in accordance with a refined understanding of domestic hierarchies. Architects such as C. F. A. Voysey and Philip Webb would prescribe down to the last detail the proportions and materials of fireplaces, mouldings and door furniture to convey the fine balance of a highly structured household.
In this reassessment of the Arts and Crafts home, the domestic objects that were conceived as works of art are brought together in the respective rooms of the house and reviewed in the context for which they were intended.
