Magnetic furnishing fabric, Lucienne Day, 1957

Whereas most of Lucienne’s fabrics were screen-printed, this design was roller-printed, making it cheaper to produce and more affordable. Available in six colourways, all carefully selected by Lucienne, some versions were printed in monochrome while others juxtaposed several colours.
