William De Morgan Membland Single Tiles

I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few. ~William Morris

William Morris, Membland Tiles accent tile

A William Morris- William De Morgan Collaboration

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.

About the Membland Hall Panels

William Morris watercolor design for Membland tile panels, 1876

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 accents and border tiles are a great choice when you don't have room for the full mural or a backsplash.


Membland Stair Risers

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.
