7 Of Our Favorites From New Williams Sonoma x Morris & Co. Tabletop Collection

An icon of Arts & Crafts design, the 19th-century British artist, poet and environmentalist William Morris is famed for his botanical textiles and wallpapers, furniture and decorative objects. Founded in 1861, Morris & Co. still creates unique products that uphold his legacy. “We’ve seen a wave of nostalgic design, starting in Europe and now sweeping across the U.S., with a newfound love of color, pattern, and maximalism in our homes. William Morris’ designs are at the forefront of this movement,” says Vallis, who with Maness, scoured the Morris & Co. archives and selected iconic patterns from 1800s to create a suite of plates, bowls, table linens, and more. “I was inspired by images of dining rooms covered with Morris & Co. wallpaper and imagined how Williams Sonoma could translate some of the iconic patterns to the tabletop,” says Maness. “We felt that the Morris & Co. collector would like to have pieces on display every day in their kitchens.” After a successful launch of Williams Sonoma x Morris & Co. last year, here are 7 of our favorite new pieces from this year’s update that are just in time for your fall table refresh.
