The Geffrye Museum looks back on the evolving tastes, styles and shapes of the living room from 1600 until the present day. Journey through the centuries to see how home life has changed over past 400 years, giving us an insight into society and human psychology at the same time.
The museum is named after Robert Gefftrye, a one-time Lord Mayor of London, who built the building and surrounding gardens in 1714. 200 years later, in 1914, the museum was established and opened to the public, and the displays of London home life reveal the evolution of design through the ages.
