Charles Voysey

Counted Cross Stitch designer: Charles Voysey

Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857 - 1941) originally trained as an architect and established his own practice in 1882. His distinctive architectural style quickly received recognition, and he was persuaded to extend his obvious talents to incorporate all decorative forms, most notably textiles, wallpaper and carpets. Unlike many other designers of the age, he was an astute businessman, and was ever conscious of saving time and money by reusing and slightly altering old designs so they could be worked in several different mediums.

His designs all possess a quality of uncluttered simplicity, usually featuring his favourite motifs of birds, trees, flowers and hearts. An important collection of his work, including carpets, textiles and drawings are held by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England.
