Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the 1890s until the outbreak of the First World War, C F A Voysey was one of the most successful and renowned British architects. His elegant, white-rendered houses with stone window dressings and sweeping green-slate roofs combined clarity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. A designer of all things domestic, as well as an architect, he was often involved in every aspect of a house's interior from wallpaper, curtains and furniture to fire grates. Moreover, the fluid curves of his decorative designs and the elongated simplicity of his furniture prove him to be a vital historical link between the Arts and Crafts and the Modern movements.<P>As the first definitive account of Voysey's architectural career, this book combines contemporary sources — photographs, quotations, original wallpaper designs and watercolour perspectives — with specially commissioned photography of his houses.

Synopsis:

At the turn of the century C.F.A. Voysey held an international reputation as a leading figure in British domestic architecture and as a designer in the decorative arts. This text is a survey of his life and work, with details of his architecture and designs for furniture and fabrics.
