House designed by C.F.A. Voysey near Guildford, Surrey,
Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857 - 1941) was an English
architect, designer and typographer. He articled with architects
J.P.Seddon and George Devey, and then opened an office of his
own in 1882, concentrating on wallpaper and fabric designs rather
than architecture. He designed his first house in 1888, and
in 1900 built his own home "The Orchard" designing
much of the furniture, decoration and fittings. His characteristic
simple architectural style was highly influential, and was copied
widely. In all he designed around 150 houses, and designed decorative
arts products, including wallpaper, textiles and carpets for
a variety of British firms.
