Lucienne Day’s designs brightened up homes across Britain in the 1950s and 60s. Perhaps you have your granny’s Lucienne Day Heal’s curtains stowed away in the attic? Or did you make a skirt out of the Lucienne Day dress fabrics reissued by John Lewis in 2014? However you came to own a Lucienne Day design, or wherever you spotted one, we would love to know.
Simply take a picture, share it on Twitter or Instagram using #LucienneDay100 and we’ll feature the best ones below.
Perfect wet afternoon in the John Lewis Partnership Heritage Centre looking at some of the hundreds of thousand fabrics in the Cavendish archives, including some marvellous Lucienne Day designs, with her own scribbled instructions to the printers. Also a small exhibition to commemorate the centenary of Lucienne's birth. #lucienneday #lucienneday100 #textiles #midcentury #modernist #johnlewis #heals #cookham
Today would have been the 100th birthday of probably the most admired and influential textile designer of the 20th Century, Lucienne Day. I am lucky enough to have this piece of her beautiful Poinsettia fabric, which she designed for Heal's...as this year is her centenary I think I should try to add more of her designs to my collection! #LucienneDay100 #lucienneday #robinandlucienneday #fabricdesign ##patterndesign #20thcenturydesign #vintagefabric #60sfabric #70sfabric #healsfabric #rainbowvintagehome
Lucienne Day created several hundred one-off hand-stitched 'silk mosaics’ in the 1980s and 90s. Many were sold to Lucienne Day enthusiasts at exhibitions all over the world. Now we’re on a quest to find and catalogue these unique works of art. Do you own a Lucienne Day silk mosaic?
'I do regard the silk mosaics rather like my children, and though many are now abroad in the homes of their owners (in about 8 countries I think) or in Museums, I love to hear how they are getting on'. Lucienne Day, 1994.
