"William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English architect, furniture and textile designer, artist, writer,socialist and Marxist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement."
If you're not familiar with his work I'm sure you'll love it. His patterns are meant not to display geometric genius, but to honor nature. "He did not see the merits of a wholly geometrically inspired design and remained convinced through most of his life that nature was the only solution to a good design." - via The Textile Blog"

If you like his work a lot of gift shops and boutiques sell products with his patterns on them. You can find stationary and office supplies with his patterns here.
