Emery Walker's House
London, W6 9TS
The last authentic Arts and Crafts interior in Britain.
Emery Walker's House, which was a private home until 1999, has the most complete and authentic Arts & Crafts interiors in the UK and includes handblocked Morris & Co Wallpaper and textiles and Philip Webb furniture.
The tall, terraced house on the River Thames at Hammersmith was home to the printer Emery Walker, friend and mentor to William Morris. The decoration and furnishings are preserved as they were in his lifetime.
The decoration at 7 Hammersmith Terrace today is typical of the homes of many of the key figures in the Arts and Crafts movement. The combination of Morris & Co textiles, wallpapers and furniture, 17th- and 18th-century furniture, and Middle Eastern and North African textiles and ceramics is similar to that which decorated William Morris's own house.
