Global influences on domestic settings - how different cultures have affected English interiors.

At Home with the World deconstructs the notion of 'Englishness' in the home by demonstrating that many items that seem bound up with a single national identity in fact originate from a variety of locations around the world. The exhibition shows the small-scale impact of huge global forces, and how elements of design from far-flung corners of Empire could be imported to the most intimate domestic settings.
