Standen House in Sussex was designed by Philip Webb in 1891. Described as his masterpiece, this house demonstrates Webb passion for traditional building and local materials. The interior of the house was decorated by Morris and Co with lighting by W.A.S.Benson, and furniture included pieces by Webb, George Jack as well as contemporary companies such as Heals and Maples.

Standen House is now preserved as a National Trust Building and is a showpiece of the Arts & Crafts Movement. It is decorated throughout with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, complemented by contemporary paintings, tapestries and furniture. The house retains many of its original electrical fittings.
