This is the fourth volume in the Decoration series of vintage books written by and featuring the work of the great interior designer David Hicks. This volume focuses on Hicks' use of fabric; his treatment of curtains, upholstery, bed-hangings, fabric-covered walls and other soft furnishings. Through images of his interior projects he teaches the reader how to successfully combine different patterns, colours and textures. Hicks was known for his bold use of strong colours and patterns and his highly original compositions are shown here in their full glory.
