Membland Tiles: Original Panel Borders and Backsplashes Fireplace Tiles
I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few. ~William Morris
Williams Morris and De Morgan collaborated on the tiles for the bath in Membland Hall -- each of the original panels was 63 inches tall! You can see the original panel and designs Here. These accent tiles are adapted from the tiles in the center of the larger panel. The original tiles were on a dark colbalt blue background that has darkened over time, making the blue colors even more striking.
The Membland accent tiles are available in 4.25, 6 x 6, and 8 x 8 inch ceramic.
Membland accent tiles (4.25 inch / 6 inch / 8 inch): $55 / $68 / $81

Other Colors: Some color modifications are possible. See How to Order Tile.
Six of a unknown number of Membland panels survive. The panels on display at the Morris Gallery have had broken tiles replaced and therefore do not match up in color or dimension, in the same way as did the original Morris and Co. panels.
Membland is available in additional sizes and formats, in the same colorsways as the Membland Single Tiles.
Membland accents and border tiles are a great choice when you don't have room for the full mural or a backsplash.
Membland is an excellent candidate for stair risers, especially as statement tiles in a foyer. Risers are *usually* six inches high, so depending on the number of steps, the full mural, a half panel, or accent / border tiles would work on stair risers. The mural is 36 inches wide. If your stairs are narrower than that, accent tiles offer another option.
