Lapis curtain fabric, Lucienne Day, 1953

Lapis reflects Lucienne’s interest in contemporary architecture and furniture design. The coloured quadrilaterals echo the flat planes of colour often used on the walls of new buildings of the period and the shapes of Robin Day’s designs in plywood such as Hillestak and Q-Stak. Lucienne’s unerring eye for unusual colour combinations gives the fabric a timeless ease and freshness.
