Specialists in the manufacture of “metamorphic” furniture, upholsterers and cabinet-makers Thomas Morgan and Joseph Sanders operated the highly successful firm of Morgan & Sanders. The firm flourished between 1801 and 1820. Sanders was a highly innovative designer, patenting designs and improvements to “The Metamorphic Library Chair,” “The Imperial Dining Table” and “Merlin’s Mechanical Chair.” They marketed aggressively, advertising in both London and provincial newspapers, and supplied furniture to not only the hero of the time, Lord Horatio Nelson, but enjoyed Royal patronage, as well. Much of what the company designed can be called campaign furniture, and they crafted furniture of “transportable comfort” aimed at the Army and Navy markets. In fact, both the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and the Royal Naval Museum shows examples of their work. After the death of Joseph Sanders in 1818, the company was renamed Morgan & Co. and sold to their foreman, John Durham, in 1820. Numbered 'Plate 10. Vol. 2.' upper right, from Rudolph Ackermann's 'Repository of Arts' periodical, published from 1809-1829. A series of the firm’s designs were published in the magazine between 1809 until 1815. The formal title of the publication was "Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics", and it discussed and illustrated day to day life, and influenced English taste in fashion, architecture and literature.
