Living room/dining room setting at the Milan Triennale, Robin Day, featuring furniture and lighting designed by Robin Day and Calyx furnishing fabric by Lucienne Day, 1951

This open plan living room / dining room, designed by Robin for the Milan Triennale, is very similar to the version shown at the Festival of Britain. Lucienne’s Calyx fabric, with its string-like stems and cup-shaped flowers, provides a sympathetic backdrop to Robin’s spidery steel-framed furniture.
