Lucienne Day with Michael Tomkinson of Tomkinson’s Carpets, 1960

Lucienne began designing carpets for the Kidderminster firm of Tomkinsons in 1957, collaborating extensively with them and their successors I. & C. Steele until 1965. She is shown here on Tomkinsons’ stand at the International Carpet, Linoleum and Floorcovering Fair in February 1960.
