C.F.A. Voysey, an architect, also produced a wide range of textile and other pattern designs over a career that spanned 50 years. His style, characterized by bold repeats, natural forms, flat tints of color, and a pared-back simplicity, is quickly identifiable. Designers and crafters will delight in his patterns, which retain their original freshness. Karen Livingstone is Director of Masterplan and Estate at the Science Museum.
