In 1862, the Medieval Court of London International Exhibition featured a range of painted furniture, including cabinets by William Burges and work by the recently opened firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co., and by the end of the 1860's there was a significant market for 'Art Furniture'.

Max Donnelly of the Fine Art Society will consider the work of makers including EW Godwin, Lewis F Day, Richard Edis and John Moyr Smith, as well as firms such as the Art Furnitures' Alliance, Cox and Sons, Collinson and Lock and Cottier and Company, revealing how the tradition of painted furniture reached a wider public in the 1870's and 1880's.
