DE­SIGN DY­NASTY

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Decorating -

To co­in­cide with the re­lease of David Hicks Scrap­book ( Ven­dome UK, £60), his son, Ash­ley Hicks, has de­signed a fab­ric with GP & J Baker featuring a geo­met­ric pat­tern that his fa­ther would surely ap­prove of. ‘Hick­so­nian’(right, £89 per me­tre; gpjbaker.com), avail­able in a choice of two colours, blue or scar­let, is in­spired by a wall­pa­per de­sign of his fa­ther’s from 1974. The scrap­book it­self comes in a vol­ume of 25 in­di­vid­ual tomes and cov­ers the pe­riod from 1950 un­til the renowned in­te­rior de­signer’s death in 1998, of­fer­ing an in­ti­mate in­sight into his work, in­clud­ing can­did per­sonal snaps of celebri­ties of the day, press cut­tings and fab­ric swatches.
