Morris & Co
William Morris and his Pre-Raphaelite friends formed their own company of designers and decorators. As well as Burne-Jones and Rossetti, the group now included the architect Philip Webb and Ford Madox Brown. Morris, Marshall, Faulkener & Co, specialized in producing stained glass, carving, furniture, wallpaper, carpets and tapestries. The company's designs brought about a complete revolution in public taste. Their commissions included the Red House in Upton (1859), the Armoury and Tapestry Room in St. James's Palace (1866) and the Dining Room in the Victoria and Albert Museum (1867). In 1875, the partnership ended and Morris formed a new business called Morris & Company. William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones found a common passion for medievalism, particularly the Arthurian legends. Together, they toured the great Gothic cathedrals of France. They would remain lifelong friends.
