Geometry, the Easy Way
 

At it's heart geometry is very simple. We humans do like repeating patterns. They give us a sense of stability, balance and proportion.

What's in a name? Well if it's Hicks it'll be great design. Known for his bold use of colour, eclecticism, and geometric designs, David Hicks is acknowledged as one of the most exciting and innovative British interior designers of the late twentieth century.

These fabrics and wallpapers have been produced by GP & J Baker in collaboration with his son, Ashley Hicks.

One of our favourite brands, Misia, are unashamedly bold in their use of geometry.

In the grandiose panorama of the “Terre des Ocres”, cozy bouclés, sophisticated textures and diaphanous satins, meet at the crossroads of the elegant and the exquisite. The greatest painters made it their summer destination, and the large designs, inspired by Cubism or Impressionism, show off their flamboyant colors. A “Euphorie Cubiste” is born through the collaboration with famous New York designer Alison Rose. A matte and satin collection, luxurious, glamorous, and decisively modern.
