William Morris 1883
William Morris was the driving force behind the Arts and Crafts, which was anti-industrial. The Arts and Crafts movement emphasized craftsmanship, quality, and simplicity. Craftsman homes, with their linear lines, natural relaxed elegance, and large low pitched roofs, the most recognizable symbol of their movement are everywhere here in America, they were considered to be anti-Victorian style. In my neighborhood these to styles contrast each other on every block. Something like this today would be designed using a computer which is kind of sad, many of our products and decor today lack a human touch.
