Morris & Co
In 2019, Ben was approached by Morris & Co to design a new collection of fabrics and wallpapers that would build upon the classic 19th century heritage of the firm and breathe new life within it. Over six months, Ben developed a beautiful range of newly-coloured patterns which draw deep inspiration from the work of the Sanderson Design Studio in the 1960s and 70s.
The first collection, Queen Square, was launched in 2020, to great acclaim, and shortly afterwards Morris & Co approached Ben to design a second collection, Cornubia, which was launched in the spring of 2022. Queen Square has a rich, jewel-toned, autumnal palette, whereas Cornubia draws inspiration from the summer colours and tones of Ancient Cornwall – Ben’s ancestral roots.
Both collections have won industry awards and have revived interest in printed wallpapers and in Morris & Co more widely. It was an enormous pleasure and privilege for the studio to work with Sanderson on these ranges and we welcome working with other brands in the same way.
