Stanley Webb Davies (18941978) was one of Great Britain's premier makers of Arts and Crafts furniture from his workshop in Windermere in the Lake District.
Stanley was born in Darwen, Lancashire, into a wealthy mill-owning family of Quakers.
After the war he turned his back on the family's thriving textile interests and spent two years learning his craft with Arthur Romney Green in Christchurch on the South Coast.
He left there in 1922 and began to set up his business in Windermere where he built a workshop and had a new house, Gatesbield, built off New Road. He and his wife Emily lived there for over 40 years and his reputation steadily grew. Like all of the artisans in the Arts and Crafts movement, such as William Morrisand John Ruskin, his work was a direct backlash to the mechanisation and automation of Victorian times. His approach was for simple but elegant furniture, handmade to a high standard.
