A designer's dream: David Hicks is an original store in Paris where you can buy or simply admire the original bold and geometric designs which are applied to almost everything from furniture and rugs to wallpaper and tableware.
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 Parisian pad, this is the place to go.
The great man himself died back in the 90s but his legend has been skillfully preserved and nurtured into the 21st century by both Barbara Wirth and 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.
