- For the 19th century English painter, see Sir Charles Lock Eastlake.
Charles Locke Eastlake (1836 – 1906) was an architect and furniture designer. He popularised William Morris's notions of decorative arts in the Arts and Crafts style, becoming one of the principal exponents of the revived "Early English" or "Modern Gothic Style" that was so popular in Victorian times. He made no furniture himself, his designs being produced by professional cabinet makers.
From 1866 to 1877 he was secretary to the Royal Institute of British Architects, and from 1878 to 1898 he was Keeper of the National Gallery, London. His uncle, Sir Charles Lock Eastlake PRA (born in 1793) was an earlier Keeper of the National Gallery, from 1843 to 1847, which, today, leads to much confusion between the two men.
