Charles Francis Annesley Voysey

Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857 – 1941) was an English architect and furniture and textile designer. Voysey's early work was as a designer of wallpapers, fabrics and furnishings in a simple Arts and Crafts style, but he's also renowned as the architect of a number of notable country houses.

He was one of the leading figures in the Arts and Crafts movement and its immediate successors. Simplicity of form, subtlety of proportion and the use of plain, good-quality materials were fundamental to his designs, in which he seeked to develop a style suited to English traditions and conditions. Designs which he felt were successful were frequently repeated sometimes with small amendments. He delighted in finding elegant solutions to design problems.
