Phyllis Morris (1925-1988) was a Los Angeles based designer and manufacturer of luxurious custom furniture, lighting and accessories. Phyllis Morris Originals was founded in 1953, a time when Mid Century furniture design favored Modern Minimalism. According to Phyllis Morris, “Minimalism is for those without much to say.”
Phyllis Morris was known for her extravagant designs, such as her throne chairs, unique cabinets and signature canopy beds, all hand crafted in California using the highest quality materials.
