Following the creation of his own design firm in New York City, Nicholls introduced an array of textile designs that have been widely recognised for their unique “tuned” colour palette. The company has over 200 registered designs and distribution to architects and designers internationally. The emphasis for chemical free rugs and pure methodology in production is reflected in his Pureloom brand. Nicholls’ rugs and floor textiles have been published in several media outlets, and he has been at the forefront of Hi-End Couture design for over twenty-five years. Architectural Digest, The New York Times Magazine, Elle Décor, Interior Design, Vogue, Wallpaper, World of Interiors, Hamptons Cottages and Gardens, Phoenix Home & Garden and other publications have all editorialised designs and work by Nicholls.

The Geodesic Dome (Buckminster Fuller) provided fodder for research in the design of a protective, transparent shell with the ramp architecture housed safely within.

In 1985 he moved to New York and launched his “BEAST” furniture line. Over 25 prototypes were produced to exact craftsmanship, comprising: Angus, Arianne, Arno and the Aston credenza. At its source, in the workshop this period also inspired a portfolio of freehand sketches in charcoal and silver wash. The studio also was active in product design and the “Hi-Tech” re-design of Tribeca lofts, where Nicholls resided (1986 – 2001).
