David Hicks

More retro inspiration. This time from the legendary David Hicks forerunner of Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler. He was the superstar designer of the 1960s and 1970s – sought after by royalty and the privileged. Though it's been many years since his last projects were centre stage in the design world, David Hicks' influence is still felt today. His use of pattern is amazing!

Target Living's use of art

Looking through the photos on Target Living's site, I couldn't help but be totally blown away by some of the artwork they use. I love pop art (Andy Warhol rocks) and they used alot of it, plus some really fun photographs.
