One of the greatest English Arts and Crafts architects and designers was Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857—1941). This is a lovely bit of Voysey wallpaper design we were asked to frame recently. Had fun grabbing the bold outline of the pattern for the bold outline that is a picture frame, as well as accentuating the print’s elongated proportions (it’s 21-1/2″ x 10-1/2″) by using different widths for the frame’s vertical and horizontal members: its sides are 1-3/4″ wide while the top and bottom are 2-1/2″. Made in quartersawn white oak with Medieval Oak stain, the basic profile is a flat with inner and outer filets (our No. 15).

Love how the design of the print is extended to the frame. Beautiful work!
