There’s likely to be some serious demand for these 1950s Lucienne Day cushions and textiles as they return to the shelves of John Lewis.
The return of these wonderful patterns is for two reasons. Firstly, the Lucienne Day centenary is upon us and with it, a range of designs to celebrate the great woman’s work. Secondly, both Lucienne and Robin Day were design consultants for John Lewis well into the 1980s. As such, there is a longstanding relationship there.
Six cushion designs have made it into the range, including an abstract mushroom cap design created for the Festival of Britain, a print inspired dried flowers, the ‘Spectators’ design with its tall, thin figures and the geometric Lapis print. Also included are two patterns based around magnet shapes, which are limited to just 100 units to highlight the centenary.
If that’s not enough, John Lewis will also be issuing six textile prints too, which will be a dream for anyone wishing to create some amazing midcentury curtains. Not that you are limited to doing just that. If you love crafting, you are only limited by your imagination.
The textiles are yet to appear online, but the cushions are available to buy right now, selling from £45.
