Since 1935, the Parisian company Pierre Frey has designed and manufactured some of the most coveted textiles and wallpaper in the world. A member of the prestigious Comite Colbert, an association of 78 French luxury houses, Pierre Frey is an ambassador of French taste. This lavish new book celebrates a family-owned company that has flourished by preserving centuries-old crafts and techniques to both reproduce period textiles and design eclectic, contemporary creations. Pierre Frey fabrics, rugs, wall coverings, upholstered furniture and home accessories appear here in rooms created by some of today's best-known interior designers. The company's proud tradition of quality and excellence draws from the past and always looks toward the future.
