Lucienne Day

Lucienne Day's career in design spans 60 years and the freshness and originality of her work ensures that it is still relevant to contemporary interiors. A versatile and influential designer, Lucienne was commissioned by a wide range of companies and extended her very particular vision to carpets, wallpapers, tea towels and ceramics as well as textiles. With her husband Robin she pioneered the post-war revival of design and manufacture and extended the boundaries of modern design, enjoying international recognition. Her best known textile design 'Calyx' was launched at the Festival of Britain in 1951 and subsequently received the coveted International Design Award of the American Institute of Decorators.

Lucienne herself has selected the 12 designs which she feels are the strongest most appropriate for revival.
