Born in 1834, and hailed as one of the founders of the British Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris was a Jack of all creative trades, who designed beautiful, handcrafted household objects that elevated them into the domain of art. The English countryside, with its hedges, garden flowers and native fields, was Morris' main form of inspiration, which is also where his wallpaper design titled, Pink and Rose
found its roots.

, which was created in 1890 and characterised by naturalism and the intricate, repeated pattern, these glass magnets have been made from thick glass with a magnetised backing, so you can pop them on your fridge, and appreciate these iconic works every day.
