He trained with the Architectural Association, so it seems only fair to describe Ashley Hicks as a pillar of the design and architecture world. Which is why he was one of the first collaborators we chose to work with when launching the Quirky B patterned carpet collection. 

 

"I love pattern, and especially on the floor. It gives instant character and vitality to a space, as well as usefully hiding marks and damage."

We first worked with Ashley when he was commissioned to design a room set for Wool House. He was let down by his original carpet supplier, so we stepped in. We discovered a shared love of innovative, fresh ideas and an aspiration to bring carpets and pattern back to the floor resulting in one of our first collaboration's.

Ashley wanted to make a new floral design that had some 1960’s pop feeling to it, but with the more classical, formal quality of ancient Egyptian flower motifs. He was also inspired by a pink and red flowered, painted cave ceiling that he had seen in a temple in Sri Lanka, the pattern designed as a backdrop to a huge recumbent statue of the Buddha. The result was Quirky B Daisy. It has a punchy, pop presence that will inject a touch of 60’s glamour into any room. Perfect as a fully fitted carpet, a made to measure rug, runner or stair runner. 

"People are often afraid of patterned floors, thinking they will tire of them or find them overwhelming. They couldn’t be more wrong. A patterned floor gives a personality to a room, an identity that will grow with time and become part of the life lived in it. It sets up a great background or framework for everything that happens in the space, enabling a rich and vibrant life to take place."
