Design Inspiration : Robin & Lucienne Day

Robin Day is a designer who has featured in my life at many points in many different ways. I’ve written before about how sitting on his bright yellow plastic Polo chairs is a vivid memory of my childhood meal times and my relationship with his designs was strengthened when that blog post won me a 675 chair from Case Furniture which I still sit on every day.

The iconic designs of Robin & his wife Lucienne featured again in my life last weekend when Alys Bryan, a local designer and a good friend, laid on an expertly organised event about their lives at the Novium museum in Chichester. It turns out that as well as Robin’s designs following me through life, we’ve also followed a similar geographic path, both spending time living in Beckenham and now Chichester.

Blogtacular – Creativity, empowerment and feeling the fear

So last weekend was Blogtacular my second year attending and only my second ever blogger conference… and on Friday I’ll be attending my third in the shape of Britmums Live.

Between my first and second conferences I’ve learned a lot. This year I made the bold decision not to attempt to take any photos, it goes against every fibre of my being, but I knew that it would be impossible to listen, take notes, meet new people and take photos.

Blogtacular : My first blogging conference…

I’ve been slower than many posting about last weekend’s Blogtacular conference and its partly been because my brain has needed the time to slow down and absorb it all.

Despite 8 years of blogging (can that really be so?) before Friday night I had barely met another blogger and then suddenly, incredibly I was surrounded by hundreds of them. Faces I knew well that belonged to people I’d never met. It’s a very strange sensation.

Robin Day : the chairs of my childhood

Robin Day : the chairs of my childhood

by Clare Mansell

Case furniture are running a competition over the summer, giving bloggers a chance to win their stunning Sissinghurst armchair (which I think would look rather fab in our new bedroom!) or a 675 chair designed by Robin Day. All you have to do to enter is write a post about one of their products or designers. This is my entry…
