Obsessed Much: David Hicks Fabric La Fiorentina Fabric

I woke up yesterday and really needed some design inspiration.  So I packed up the bambino and we went to the Pacific Design Center to soak in all the design-liciousness.  Oddly enough, I decided to go the design center without any plan for sourcing anything.  My plan was to just look around and soak it all in while grabbing all fabrics that I thought were interesting.  By the end of the two hours (Z was not into it for much more than that), I had multiple bags of wallpaper and fabric that I got to bring home and play with. 🙂

During this short trip,  I realized that I kept coming back to the David Hicks La Fiorentina fabric.  I love the graphic nature of the pattern.  I also like that the pattern is somewhat traditional but there are different size and color variations that make the pattern more modern and fresh.

I’m not bold enough to put this on an entire sofa but wow…(Domino Magazine)


This might be a perfect use in the master bedroom since I don’t have much pattern in the room. (Ashley Hicks)

Considering that I already have the Hicks pendants in my kitchen and my current obsession with his fabric and wallpapers, I’m going to spend some time studying this talented designer.  I’m hoping my budget will allow me to use this in my house.  Otherwise, some client will likely get a “strong” suggestion.  Haha.

Here’s a Hicks knockoff that might get used if the budget doesn’t allow my initial plans.
