Where decorative details were added they generally took the form of traditional embellishment of the sort; the long chamfers, chip carved edge detailsThe style was embraced and developed by other designers and craftsmen including Gordon Russell, Stanley Webb Davies in Cumbria, Sid Barnsley's son Edward and Arthur Romney Green in Hampshire and Robin Nance in St Ives and Ambrose Heal are a handful of such men out of many. The best developed their own style within the established tradition
