Robin and Lucienne Day
£725,000: the four-bedroom house in Chichester where Robin and Lucienne Day used to live
We owe a lot to Robin and Lucienne Day. The textile specialists transformed British style after the Second World War — he with new materials and inexpensive furniture, she with wild, vibrant pattern.

“Day was the first woman who really understood art for the people,” said designer Orla Kiely. “No modernist home of the Fifties was complete without her iconic designs.”

The couple’s work was as practical as it was jazzy and the polypropylene stackable chairs they invented can still be seen in schools, hospitals, airports and restaurants the world over. Now their former four-bedroom house in Chichester is for sale at £725,000 through Jackson-Stops & Staff.
