Online auction honors the king and queen of midcentury British design


At Home with the Days

By Ambra Medda

London design destination Twentytwentyone is hosting a fabulous online auction of furniture and objects from the home of Robin and Lucienne Day—who, arguably, singlehandedly introduced the midcentury modern design aesthetics to Great Britain.

The 93 lots include their own designs as well as charming and beautiful crafts and décor collected around the world. Truly a fascinating way to better know these design icons!

And what's more, all of the proceeds benefit the Robin and Lucienne Day charitable trust. So what are you waiting for? Go bid right now!
