The Geffrye Museum

The Geffrye Museum is devoted to the history of the home, showing how homes and gardens reflect changes in society, behaviour, style and taste over the past 400 years. The Geffrye's annual celebration of ceramics returns in September, showcasing the work of over 50 potters from across the UK. An exciting array of work will be on sale, from classic tableware, lighting and other domestic objects to purely decorative and distinctive one-off pieces, illustrating a wide variety of techniques, styles, textures and colour.

The Geffrye's sequence of period rooms shows the changing style of English homes, and particularly those of London's middle classes. Although relatively prosperous, the middle classes were not as rich as the landed gentry and aristocracy, but were wealthy enough to have comfortable town houses with good quality furniture and possessions. In the 17th and 18th centuries they would typically have been merchants, financiers, doctors and lawyers. By the 19th century, as the middle classes expanded, they would have included people engaged in business and manufacturing, and in our own times might also include accountants, architects and media professionals.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
