Lucienne Day was/is awesome...

I was watching Antiques Roadshow the other day (mock all you like, but trying to guess the valuation is fun) and a lady had brought in a set of incredible plates. They turned out to be from Lucienne Day, one of Britons most distinguished post war textile designers who, less infamously, also dabbled in ceramic design.

Calyx Chair

My complete ignorance on this subject has since been replaced with a borderline obsession as she has designed some ridiculously beautiful patterns which have since been applied to furniture, cushions, canvas', shoes etc etc. After a bit of a Google trawl, I think my favourite is this chair... And here is the lady herself.
