Robin and Lucienne Day – Design and the Modern Interior

leave a comment »

The most celebrated British designer couple left us last year. A fitting tribute to their creative genius, Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, the Days’ home town will feature an exhibition of their design opening 26 March. And good news, Lesley’s Jackson’s reference on the Days, Robin & Lucienne Day: Pioneers of Contemporary Design is being reedited on the occasion. You can buy it here.
