Marion Dorn was a textile designer primarily in the form of wall hangings, carpeting and rugs. Known for her significant contributions to modern British interiors and her sculpted carpets, she contributed to some of the best-known interiors of the time including the Savoy Hotel and the Queen Mary. Dorn served Edward Fields intermittently as creative director and is responsible for designing the carpet for the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House during Kennedy’s presidency. Among Dorn's most notable Edward Fields creations are Embassy Court, Cavalcade, Corinth, Heiress, Tanegra, Palace Parquet and Sparta. Christine Boydell called Dorn 'The architect of floors' in a book dedicated to the designer.
