Voysey trained as an architect but filled his time between architectural commissions by producing decorative designs for textiles, fabrics, carpets and tiles. His designs were published widely, exhibited at the Arts & Crafts Exhibition Society from 1888 and were highly influential. Voysey's furniture was made by F C Nielsen, metalwork by Thomas Elsley & Co. and textiles by Alexander Morton, G. P. & J. Baker, A. H. Lee, J. W. & C. Ward, Stead McAlpin, Thomas Wardle, Turnbull & Stockdale, Donald Brothers, Foxton's, Templeton's, Tomkinson & Adam and to the shops Liberty's, Story's and Wylie & Lochead.
