Lucienne Day


Lucienne Day

Lucienne Day (b. January 5, 1917) is a British textile designer born in Coulsden, Surrey, England.

Day is the wife of noted furniture designer Robin Day. The Days, considered to be Britain's most celebrated designer couple of the post-war era, have been married since 1942. They are often compared to their American counterparts, Charles and Ray Eames.

The development of their styles can be traced in Lesley Jackson's book "Robin and Lucienne Day", published in 2001.
