About This Item: 
C. F. A. Voysey (1857-1941) advocated honest and thoughtful design, believed in high standards of craftsmanship, and encouraged the use of only the finest materials. His simple, elegant work--often enhanced by highly symbolic decoration--was considered revolutionary in his time and continues to enchant today. This definitive volume on Voysey's design life focuses on the English architect as a designer of furniture, metalwork, and textiles, providing a new analysis of his characteristic motifs. It offers a complete and fully illustrated account of both his output and his vision for domestic life at the turn of the 20th century. Original drawings and plans, archival photography, and images of surviving objects are united here. Extensive new research details the personal and professional relationships that enabled Voysey to become a great and prolific designer, shedding light on how he ran his business, how he promoted, exhibited, and sold his work, who his clients were, and who was responsible for manufacturing his designs.
