William Morris Gallery


Conservation By Design (CXD) has supplied bespoke showcases to the William Morris Gallery in London following a £5 million major refurbishment. The Walthamstow gallery has been transformed to create a new world-class destination and international centre of excellence for the study of Morris, one of the foremost creative artists and original thinkers on the nineteenth century.

It reopened its doors to the public in August 2012, giving visitors the chance to view almost 600 objects and previously unseen work. The collection housed at the William Morris Gallery is the only one in the world to represent all aspects of Morris’ work.

CXD has supplied 35 bespoke showcases throughout the museum, housing a mix of drawings, photographs, wallpapers, fabrics, ceramics, glass, furniture, stained glass, and fine art.

Vicky Carroll, Museum and Gallery Manager, said:

"The transformation of the building provides a unique opportunity for the visitor to become immersed in the life and works of this creative genius and delivers increased and fully-refurbished exhibition space.

"Many artefacts are on display for the first time and the showcases offer an unhampered view from all angles to enjoy them to the full. The collection looks fantastic and will be protected for many decades to come."

Chris French, of Conservation by Design, added:

"The bespoke nature of the display cases means they are perfect to show the diverse range of items in the William Morris Gallery for all to enjoy. Visitors will now be able to learn all about Morris’ life and work for many years to come."
