John Lewis

John Lewis is the U.K.’s largest department store chain, with a reputation for excellent service, reliable quality and good design.

Robin and Lucienne Day worked for John Lewis as design consultants from 1962 - 1987, overseeing a transformation of every aspect of the firm’s house style. 

Lucienne Day also designed for Cavendish Textiles, a company owned by John Lewis. Her 1954 dress fabrics and mid-70s furnishing fabrics were reissued in 2014 as part of the John Lewis 150 Years celebration. Based on scrupulously careful archive research, a collection of curtain fabrics, cushions, dress fabrics and fashion was developed by John Lewis' design teams in close consultation with the Foundation.

In 2017 John Lewis celebrated Lucienne Day's Centenary with an exclusive range of cushions made up from Classic Textiles' digital reprints of seven of her most famous designs.
