Another day

Friday, 15 April 2011

Not so much chairs today as books - well, a book.  And patterns.  Having stumbled across what looks like a super read - Robin and Lucienne Day:  Pioneers in Modern Design by Lesley Jackson - we were quite taken with the book's cover.  Obligatory images of chairs designed by Robin Day sit comfortably above Lucienne Day's Miscellany fabric which dates from 1952.  And because one pattern isn't enough, we've included another, also by Lucienne, entitled Fritillary dating from 1954 - the detail on both is just exquisite.

Images:  Stickers and Stuff
