JP Seddon was one of the most influential architectural practices of the day

Their most famous design was the Honeymoon Cabinet for Morris & Co which was painted by Edward Burne Jones

John Pollard Seddon FRIBA (19 September 1827 – 1 February 1906) was an English architect. His father was a cabinetmaker and his brother Thomas Seddon (1821–1856), a landscape painter. He was educated at Bedford School

J. P. Seddon was a pupil of Thomas Leverton Donaldson, though Donaldson was a classical architect and Seddon preferred the Gothic Revivalism of John Ruskin

Between 1852 and 1863 J. P. Seddon formed a partnership with John Prichard. Many of their major commissions were church restoration works, most famously for Llandaff Cathedral. In 1871 he submitted a design in a competition for Holloway Sanatorium.

C. F. A. Voysey was articled as a pupil of Seddon in 1873.
