The Art and Crafts movement began in the 19th Century in Britain at a time when designers felt as though there had been a decline in design standards caused by the Industrial Revolution, as well as being a response to the Great Exhibition of 1851 where the exhibits showcased were of inferior quality, artificial and ornate.

The Arts and Crafts movement was really a reflection of a time when designers started to realise and appreciate the importance of having items made by craftspeople. Items made during this time were handcrafted and of intricate design, often seen in medieval, romantic or folk styles of decoration.

If you would like to buy a house built in the Arts and Crafts era then Hawes and Co Wimbledon has this 5 bedroom house for sale (featured) and is beautiful example of a house created during that illustrious period.
