Overview

David Hicks is considered to be among the foremost interior designers of the 20th century. From the decoration of his own house in London in 1956—in powerful colors that heralded an end to the drab, postwar English look—he set the pace for interior design both in Europe and America. David Hicks: Designer looks at the most vital period of his career, from 1958 to 1979. Presenting 200 original color photos, many never before published, it displays a decorating oeuvre that ranged from apartments for Helena Rubinstein, the Niarchos children, and the Prince of Wales to yachts, private jets, and the glamorous New York offices of British Steel. Central to the book are the interiors of his own houses, where he mixed antique and modern with a groundbreaking command of style and color. This book is a splendid overview of the entire range of the designer’s vision and talents, with chapters on English and New York interiors interspersed with sections on his designs for stores and offices, furniture and carpets, fabrics and wallpapers, tablescapes, graphics, and books.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A lavish survey of the work of one of the world’s leading interior designers.
Living Room
Hicks sons retrospective shows Hicks awesome staying power.
Vogue
Today Hicks invigorating work looks fresher than ever.
Library Journal
Late British interior designer David Hicks (1929-98) came to prominence in the 1960s with his eclectic style, bold use of color, and affinity for self-promotion. He continued to be a taste-maker whose numerous books translated design trends into a language that amateurs could understand and emulate. His son, also an interior designer and furniture designer, has written a tribute to his father that focuses on his design career. The first half of the book describes Hicks's upbringing, marriage to Pamela Montbatten, and design business. The latter half consists of color photographs of his residential interiors, which include Britwell, his country home in Oxfordshire. This intimate view of an important 20th-century interior designer is recommended for large interior design collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
