  • Bold Beginnings

    Hicks began using tight-knit geometric prints on carpets and walls as a backlash against the English penchant for chintz. In the ‘60s, the concept was not only shocking but also a revelation.


    Lesson Learned: Hicks’s classic honeycomb pattern—his most recognizable design—lives on today in many forms, such as rugs and fabric. These large-scale carpets create the illusion of more square footage.

    Bold Beginnings
  • Elevating Tastes

    Dousing rooms in heavy magentas, reds, and glossy chocolate browns; covering floors in his signature patterned rugs; and juxtaposing antique and modern furniture, Hicks created a dazzling brand. Today both Jonathan Adler and Miles Redd remind us of his aesthetic.


    Lesson Learned: To follow Hicks’s lead, forgo traditional paisleys and florals in favor of striking interlocking patterns. Balance the boldness with artwork, lamps, and accessories in light colors.

    Elevating Tastes
  • A Fabulous Life

    Innately dramatic, not just in his decorating style, Hicks was a social creature of storied proportions. This helped him build a client list that included Vidal Sassoon, Helena Rubinstein, and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia.


    Lesson Learned: Upholstery, window treatments, and rugs that center on one hue make an unexpected electric statement. Avoid a dizzying effect by choosing light and dark variations of the chosen color.
