18 Stafford Terrace formerly known as Linley Sambourne House was the home of the Punch illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne (1844-1910) in Kensington, London. Stafford Terrace was an almost new townhouse when the Sambournes moved in, in 1875. It was Linley Sambourne who set about re-decorating the house in the Aesthetic style. Today the house is a fine example of middle class Aestheticism, its influences can still be seen permeating throughout the house, from decorative Sunflower motifs in the stained glass windows to the fine selection of William Morris wallpapers that hang within the rooms through to the displayed collection of blue-and-white Chinese import porcelain.
