A designer's dream: David Hicks is an original store where you can buy or simply admire the original bold and geometric designs which are applied to almost everyhting from furniture, rugs, wall paper, tableware... Or you can use their interior design service. Check out the recently opened art gallery next door.
David Hicks is a bit off the beaten track, unless you're a connoisseur. But as the Michelin guide would say "it is worth the detour".
Whether you're looking for something strikingly special for your home - and it can be anything from a rug, a lamp, a table, a chair.... or whether you need a stylish interior decorator for your newly acquired Pariisian pad, this is the place to go.
The great man himself died back in the 90s but his legend has been skillfully preserved alnd nurtured into the 21 st century by both Barbara Wirth, and today Marie-Dominique Cunaud.
The style is distinctive: bold geometric designs, strong primary colours. Fabulous blood red and black lacquer providing a welcome relief from the nebulous shades of taupe, mushroom and beige that have invaded most interiors these days.
The David Hicks gallery is right next door. It opened its doors in January 2013 and has a continual series of exhibitions taking place, representing very different artists and styles and including anything from paintings to photos to sculpture.
