About the designer:
David Hick’s fusion of pattern, colour, antique and contemporary has influenced many designers of both home and fashion. His early clients mixed aristocracy, media and fashion (Vidal Sassoon, Helena Rubinstein, the Duchess of Rutland and Mrs. Conde Nast). He married Lady Pamela Mountbatten in 1960 and was soon making carpets for Windsor Castle and decorating the Prince of Wales’ first apartment at Buckingham Palace.
Colour: Red, brown and orange as seen in The Shining (other custom colour ways available)

1 Ply Wool is a high quality material and this is our recommendation for our luxury carpet, rugs and runners.
If budget is of the essence then China Wool is still good quality and simply a more economical option.
There is very small difference in the appearance of the two (see images).
The main difference between 1 ply wool and China wool is the purity of the wool and therefore cost.
Our 1 ply wool from New Zealand has lower levels of lanolin (the natural oils found in a sheep’s wool) than the China wool.
Printed Nylon is digitally printed on nylon. This is a budget option.
Within London M25 – Curbside delivery included (meaning you need to be present to receive, offload and take the carpet inside)

Film and Furniture fans will know the original inspiration for this very website was the hexagonal patterned carpet as seen in The Shining‘s Overlook Hotel film set. 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 we have been able to source it for you through the manufacturer who holds the official David Hicks license to make this carpet and rugs to the exact original design.

“When I found out about the official Hicks Hexagon The Shining carpet and ordered one early this year, never could I have imagined the whole world to be in actual state of quarantine on its arrival. Even though my Amsterdam apartment is not exactly the Overlook hotel in winter… The rug is exactly like the digital and physical fabric sample that was provided in advance, down to the exact colours. The hexagons fit perfectly! Hand tufted and as thick and solid as a rock! Thank you for this amazing piece to complete my home and for the great on-point service & communication.”
“The Shining rug has been in our guest room now for a couple of months now, and we really love it. The fit is just as we expected, and it looks terrific in the space.”
Brandon, Irving, Texas.
“The rug arrived yesterday morning and it is beautiful! I am so glad I went with the nicer wool weave. Thank you so so so much!”
