Beautiful and Useful:
Objects to Elevate Every Day
The multi-talented William Morris—painter, poet, architect, designer, manufacturer—was also the Marie Kondo of his day. “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful,” he advised more than 150 years ago. Inspired by Morris’s golden rule, we’ve brought together objects that elevate everyday tasks. These made-to-last items range from striking desk accessories and streamlined containers to expertly crafted cleaning tools and utensils.
