2017 seems to be a good year for creative centenary celebrations and I’ve been really enjoying following the Lucienne Day 100 activities. For the centenary campaign the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation has been gathering a really lovely online collection of people’s favourite Lucienne Day designs - from curtains, carpets and dresses to table linen and hand-stitched silk mosaics. What a wonderful way to get people involved in the celebrations and to highlight the relevance of great design in everyday lives.
I'm ashamed to admit that I don’t yet own any of Lucienne Day's designs, but I do rather love this tea towel design from 1959, which has been reissued by design shop twentytwentyone to mark the centenary year.
