Design Crush: David Hicks’ La Fiorentina

In yesterday’s inspiration post, I hinted at my love of graphic patterns and more specifically David Hicks’ La Fiorentina. I have had an ongoing love affair with this pattern for quite some time now. To me it is an absolutely classic print that will never go out of style. I love all of the colorways, but my two favorites are Ivory / Bark (shown above and in the images that immediately follow) and Wine/Magenta in smaller doses. I just think it is such a smart, crisp pattern that looks fabulous in both large and small doses and complements so many styles of décor.

Which colorway do you like best? Is there a certain pattern that makes you swoon each time you see it?

It's amazing how much that pattern has popped up without ever realizing it until now. I love it in the magenta/wine but like you would opt for the bark/ivory version. I adore La Fiorentina used for drapes; makes such a impact. Great post Paloma! xx

Great fabric! I especially love the drapes, bed-skirt and the skirted table.

I really liked this post, I love when bloggers pull together photos like this, it was fun to see this fabric so much and I guess I didn't realized how much it was used, I just knew I really like it!

Jordana said...

Great photos. I love the wine/magenta but it's slightly too colourful for me. Next up would be white & black...classic and really shows off the pattern. I wonder...have you spotted a white on white verson?

Viera said...

Definitely one of iconic fabrics.

Love that pattern. I had a big floor pillow in brown and white with the same type of pattern. It had a great texture to it too. My pets loved it!! Great alternative to the typical dog bed.

Chic Coles said...

The Ivory/Bark and the Gray are my two favorite color ways. This is such a great pattern and I would love to have a couple pillows in it!

There is something calming about Ivory and Bar, but the wine and magenta are quite beautiful as well.

I, too, love this pattern. It looks so great in so many kinds of decor. A happy, happy fabric. Hope you are well.

I love the Ivory and Black - a classic that looks great with other patterns!

EmbodyingFashion said...

Really, really amazing pictures. I just cant stop looking at them :)

tarheel said...

they're all fab, absolutely, but I love the gray and the ivory/camel best. One day...

Kari said...

La Fiorentina is an all time fave too...it's timeless. ps. that's David's daughter, India, on the domino cover not Allegra.

Bianca said...

Can anyone tell me where I can buy this fabric? My searches are coming up with zero...Thanks!!

Bailey @ peppermintbliss said...

I think the ivory/bark speaks to me the most because it is so classic. I love cut velvet fabrics, whenever I am at work pulling for my boss I always end up slipping some in even though it is totally not her or her clients taste at all! Maybe one day it will work for her!

Jennifer said...

It is always inspiring to see how this fabric has been used throughout the years in so many different types of interiors! It is available to the trade through Lee Jofa.

I love them all! Hick's beachy space is amazing!!

Hello Lover... said...

Ivory and bark is my absolute favorite! I actually purchased a small amount on ebay and plan to use it for some benches in my entryway - I think it's timeless!
