Armchair adapted by Morris and Co. from traditional pattern. The "Morris Chair" was a pioneering version of reclining chair, with a reclining back, moderately high armrests, and notches to adjust the degree of slant desired. It was reportedly adapted by Morris and Co. in 1866, from a prototype owned by Ephraim Colman in rural Sussex, England. It was sold widely both in the UK and (in adapted form) in North America. Later versions were made by Liberty and Co., Gustav Stickley, and others.
