Influenced by William Morris’s ideals and aesthetic, this chair was first made by Phillip Clissett, a chair-maker from Herefordshire, in 1888. It was used to furnish the Meeting Room of the Art Workers Guild in London.  We have one in the office, bought when the Art Workers had a fund-raising sale. Do ask to sit on it next time you are in the shop! On the Post next week: other designs which were influenced by William Morris.
