Hicks’ Hexagon carpet as seen in The Shining

Designer: David Hicks

Stark Carpet

Director: Stanley Kubrick

Film and Furniture fans will know the original inspiration for this very website was the hexagonal patterned carpet in The Shining‘s Overlook Hotel. The carpet in The Hotel’s corridor features prominently in several key scenes, including young Danny’s first unnerving encounter with room 237 as he investigates on his tricycle.

The carpet’s dynamic orange, brown and red colours and mesmerizing graphic pattern leap out at us from the screen, so it’s no surprise that it has become the most iconic carpet’s in film.

The carpet is no longer in general production, but the good news is we are now able to source it for you through the manufacturer who hold the official David Hicks license to make this carpet to the exact original design.
