c. f. a. voysey wallpaper and textile illustrations





am loving the early 20th c. arts & crafts designer c. f. a. voysey.

these are two preparatory illustrations for potential designs (carpet, and wallpaper) that he sketched. I wonder if current wallpaper designers sell sketches of their designs-- I think those images would be lovely pieces of artwork, in between finished wallpaper and actual illustration.

happy friday!

That first image would make the most gorgeous wallpaper - beautiful!

I was just thinking that the detail and lushness of these patterns would almost be better suited to a door or around a fire place--something subtle to keep your average apartment from being overwhelmed. They're just gorgeous.
