Fabrics & Linens: Felix Spicer

British fabric and wallpaper designer Felix Spicer is one of those people who restores your faith in humanity. It could be the Rilke quotes he tosses about or his debonair demeanor, but Spicer is a throwback to the nineteenth century. He finds his inspiration in his extensive collection of French and Italian hairpins from this period; his painstaking execution of pattern and his meticulous selection of Belgian and Irish linen elevate his work to a rarefied art form.

His bespoke fabrics begin at £98 per meter; go to Felix Spicer.
