INSIDE: A GALLERY BY CLAUDE CARTIER

Savoir faire19/10/2017

Inside Gallery is a unique concept started by Claude Cartier Studio where the decor changes every 6 months in an attempt to highlight the firm’s interior designers. The scenography is often played out in a dialogue between a furniture and textile editors as well as artists and guest galleries. The scene unfolds in a kind of artistic expression that focuses on linking interiors and furniture together.

Using inspiration from travel and memories, Claude Cartier deigns to create a space free from the traditional codes of design. Pierre Frey’s latest collaboration with India Mahdavi  “True Velvet” is featured in the 6th edition of this space located in Lyon. The overall result is one features 20th century design at its finest.

COLLABORATION WITH THE INVISIBLE COLLECTION / VIS-A-VIS X PIERRE GONALONS

 The Invisible Collection partnered with Vis-a-Vis to present an interior designer’s bedroom by Pierre Gonalons. The designer / architect used the Pierre Frey fabric from his collaboration with us earlier this year.

The Pierre Gonalons x Pierre Frey collection was inspired by the Italian designs of Dino Gavina, the creator of “ParadisoTerrestre”- for which the collection is also named.  In his project for The Invisible Collection, Gonalons upholstered a sofa in the fabric “Fiori.” Fiori is inspired by three of Davino Gavina’s passions: the futuristic flowers patterns, Bahaus and Kinetic art.

The bedroom designed by Pierre Gonalons took inspiration from art deco, Hollywood and Versailles with its gilded edges and sun motifs found throughout the decor. The designer sought to create an atmosphere that was heavily influenced by the 70s, drawing from both classicism and pop art.

Isabelle Dubern, co-founder of the Invisible Collection, says of the collection, “We are delighted to also be working with Pierre for our first collaboration with la Maison Pierre Frey, an exemplary family brand.”

LES DESSINS 3 – COLLECTION 2017

Savoir faire08/09/2017

 Maison Pierre Frey’s passion for creative and colorful designs is evident in this season’s wallpaper collection. In a continuation from the “Les Dessins 2” collection, “Les Dessins 3” invites us to travel through time and discover many styles on an evocative journey full of emotions.

The journey is one that is narrative and sensory: explorer’s dreams, silent deserts, Indian poetry, and abstract art. The inspiration of the collection is found in artistic favorites, Pierre Frey fabrics, and archival reinterpretations that are all interwoven elements found in each print.

Original artworks are expressed through techniques that are delicate and spontaneous. They include wondrous sketches, soft watercolors, India ink, scraped painting and even spontaneous pencil strokes. Freedom of expression is very unique to Maison Pierre Frey- affirming its taste and importance in eclecticism.

Bright, colorful and optimistic, this new collection will delight pattern and decoration enthusiasts.

Boussac’s latest collection evokes the playfulness of the 80’s with a modern twist. Referencing Memphis Group (a collaborative of 1980’s Italian design), CARTOON plays with typical 20th century materials and defies conventions with its humor. The collection’s chromatic palette and graphic lines take inspiration from Pop art with a style that is direct and spontaneous.

Enter the World of “True Velvet” with India Mahdavi

Savoir faire06/09/2017

Pierre Frey is proud to announce its new collaboration with the “Queen of Color” – India Mahdavi. The architect / designer has previously worked on interiors for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Ladurée and the Monte Carlo Beach Club just to name a few of the prestigious names found on her resume.

N192-INDIA_MAHDAVI_01_274 -® Paolo Roversi

The latest launch with Pierre Frey, “True Velvet,” is the Mahdavi’s first collection of fabrics. The texture of velvet was the designer’s main source of inspiration for this project as the fabric “has a very sensual touch, but [it] also allows bright and deep colouring. With this collection, I wanted to bring an embracing and joyful dimension – à the image of all that I love.”

Mahdavi loves rich color and geometric patterns which is evident as seen in the prints and shades available for this collection. There are nearly 80 shades from soft and subtle to saturated and luminous.

True Velvet is available in three textures: Fine, Medium and Bold- much like the colouring pens found on India Mahdavi’s design desk.
