Recline on the finest Chesterfields and sleep in beds laced in blankets weaved from endless thread counts and revel in this mastercraft. It’s rarely mentioned that one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century was British; Owen Jones, a defining figure in popularizing theories throughout the 1800s.

Jones was responsible for the decoration of the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London for the Great Exhibition, which ran between May and October of 1851; Jones was also responsible for the arrangement of the exhibits inside. The interior artwork was lavished in eloquent shades of deep reds, golden yellow, and oceanic blues, which was unveiled by Queen Victoria receiving critical acclaim across the board. Jones’ most significant work was The Grammar of Ornament, crafted in 1856 which formulated 37 key principals of interior design and decoration.

Jones went on to collaborate with London firm Jackson and Graham, producing furniture for other clients including art collector Alfred Morrison and the Khedive of Egypt, Ismal Pasha, a representative of the Monarch of Egypt. Britain truly reigned supreme in the Interior Design industry throughout the nineteenth century, with the most accomplished in the craft being Crace, Waring and Gillow and Holland and Sons, with infamous decorators including Thomas Edward Colicutt, Edward William Godwin, Charles Barry, Gottfried Semper and George Edmund Street.
