About MoDA

The Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (MoDA) houses what is widely regarded as one of the world's most comprehensive collections of nineteenth and twentieth century decorative arts for the home.

MoDA has an outstanding collection of wallpapers and textiles dating from the 1870s to the 1960s. Many of these are the work of the Silver Studio, one of Britain's leading commercial design studios from 1880 to 1960. The Silver Studio was always responsive to the fashions and tastes of the moment, designing in all the major styles such as the flat stylised Art Nouveau of the late nineteenth century, as well as the perennially popular traditional and historical idiom. Its work provides a vivid insight into pattern design in the English home between 1880 and 1960.
