ROBIN AND LUCIENNE DAY





 
Robin and Lucienne Day were post WWII mid-century British designers. Robin designed inexpensive furniture using inexpensive materials and Lucienne designed textiles for companies such as Heals.

The couple is often compared to Charles and Ray Eames. However, the Eames tended to work as a team and the Days mostly worked mostly independently. Robin’s furniture and Lucienne’s furnishings are very similar and harmonious. However, the Days are both influential figures in their own right.

As I am doing more and more quilting, I especially love Lucienne's textiles. They are very mid-century to me, yet the patterns and color palettes are timeless.
