I have diamonds on my mind – the shape that is. I spotted this yellow chair featuring a diamond motif at an ice cream shop in Las Vegas’ Bellagio Hotel. Its design is reminiscent of David Hicks’ modern textiles. Unafraid of strong graphics and pattern, David Hicks continues to be an inspiration. His style continues to be repeated on everything from outdoor chairs to Driad’s “Flo” counter stool.
Recently featured on the front cover of Domino, I am planning to reupholster a chair in this same bold diamond pattern. I think it will look perfect next to my newly acquired West Elm Tribal Diamond Rug. It will surely bring a little bit of a modern classic into my living room.
Diamonds are forever, and David Hicks designed bold patterns will be with us just as long. You can explore more of his legendary collection at Lee Jofa.
