David Hicks Hexagonal Wallpaper

This wallpaper was first designed in the 1960s by David Hicks. It is available once again through wallpaper manufacturer Cole and Son. David Hicks was a very influential English interior designer who was born in the 1920's. I think this geometric print is brilliant, I particularly like the pink colourway it reminds me of some of the interior designer Kelly Wrestlers work.

Interesting Fact 
The other day I was watching Toy Story when I noticed that the carpet in the scary toy torturing next door neighbours house was the Hix Hexagonal Print the wallpaper is also very similar check it out.  

Then I was informed that the carpet is also the same as the carpet in the Hotel in the movie the Shining. See the image below.
