50's Textiles Inspiration

Lucienne Day is a British textile designer who I found very inspiring throughout my final major project 'Ocean Florals'.  Her husband Robin Day was also her work partner where they designed furniture. But Lucienne did some really interesting textiles prints during the 1950s.  They include a variety of colours, scale and texture.  I really like the unique shapes and use of linear within her designs.

Lucienne's prints were inspired by nature and plants. But I feel they look like them may have had some African influence as well.
