Hicks, Tricks and GeometricsJul 25, 2008

This year I've seen the re-emergence of geometric designs, particularly smaller and mid-scaled patterns. This of course harks back to one of the giants of interior design; David Hicks. His signature 'H' motif, along with other small patterns adorned carpets, cushions, lamps and wallpaper, helping to create his eclectic, bold, but always tailored interiors. I have read that his love of geometric designs was inspired by the patterned tiles used in Islamic architecture. Nowadays contemporary designers like Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler and more subtly David Jimenez and Philip Gorivan are using these designs to wonderful effect.


Using geometric patterns is a great way of introducing a visual 'punch' to a room, yet at the same time they will work alongside other designs and textures. From a distance smaller-scaled geometric designs are 'read' by the eye as a texture and add visual interest without dominating. We currently have a great selection of fabrics which fit this bill (see image above). Please contact us for more information on these designs.
