Octagon carpet, 1964

From 1957 Lucienne Day collaborated with Wilton Royal carpet manufacturers on colour ways for patterns by their in-house designers. In 1964 she designed her own collection for their advanced modern 'Architects' Nova' range, producing bold geometric designs like 'Octagon' in vibrant colours.
