Mary Lee Foiret – known as ML – was passionate about carpet design. The daughter of an eminent Canadian architect she was born in Montreal where she attended McGill University. She worked for Mrs. Marion McDougal, a leading interior designer of the time before arriving in London in the 1950s where she worked for George Spencer Decorations in Sloane Street.
