Things to Use, Things to Love


An imagery-filled conversation inspired by William Morris’ golden rule to “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

Artist Lola Lely and illustrator Nina Chakrabarti exchange thoughts on the ordinary and extraordinary, the aesthetic, and functional.

“To apply art to useful wares, in short, is not a frivolity, but a part of the serious business of life.” —William Morris
