Wm Morris ~ Wardrobes

Wm Morris Arts & Crafts Gothic style built-in wardrobe at The Red House, furniture

Wardrobes are not the 1st thing you think of with Morris it has to be said. But Morris, like the rest of us, had to hang his clothes somewhere. If you want to do a Morris theme bedroom you need to be able to tie all the furniture visually together.

This wardrobe is one of several designed by Morris's friend Philip Webb, for the Red House. They were all built-in and very substantial in size, and helped to re-create the 'Medieval ambience' at Red House. We have the measurements for these wardrobes at Red House, which were all different in style, and could reproduce them, either exactly, or in the style of the originals, should you require it.

I was fortunate enough to measure up all the wardrobes at The Red House, the only real source of original Morris wardrobes, apart from the Prioress wardrobe. So we can either offer copies of these or produce new versions of them. We can also design completely new wardrobes in Morris's style, be they freestanding or a run of fitted robes (with modern interior fittings - to most people it's the exterior 'Look' that is the important thing). Feel free to contact us to discuss this further.
