Visit Red House, Bexleyheath

The cooperative attempt to decorate Morris's new house at Bexleyheath led to the establishment of the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. The partners were Morris, Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Philip Webb, Charles Faulkner (an accountant) and Peter Paul Marshall (a surveyor).

The firm was set up as a 'company of fine art workmen', designing and producing furniture, wallpaper, murals, stained-glass windows, metalwork, tapestries and smaller works such as tiles and embroidery, and the recently restored Red House is a testament to their combined vision and skill.
