The fantastic Saint Joseph’s Arts Society by Ken Fulk


legKen Fulk - Church8476

The famous American decorator Ken Fulk is renowned for his luxurious, always incredible projects. The Virginia-born creator has built his reputation by his concept of designing “experiences“, from exuberant interiors to unforgettable events.

 The launch of the Saint Joseph’s Arts Society is marking a step in Ken Fulk’s engagement to offer rarefied experiences. The decorator has given birth to a huge and versatile space totally dedicated to the community  of Arts lovers. The place includes library, exhibition spaces, settings for performances, coffee/cocktail bar and private salons offering VIP lounge access. The concept is simple : the access is open to subscribers and their invited artists. Those last ones have to contribute with their creative participation while being exempt of fees.

Added to this incredible place is the fact that St. Joseph’s Arts Society is housed in a 22,000-square-foot National Landmark church in the heart of San Francisco. Founded in 1861, this religious architecture was abandoned after the Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989. The decrepit building has been bought by Ken Fulk and two other partners, thus completely restored according to its Romanesque history and preserving its original character. A freestanding steel mezzanine has been constructed independently and offers 9,000 square feet more to the church.

All Saint Joseph’s upholstery and drapery has been made with La Maison Pierre Frey fabrics, including 600 yards of the iconic “Grand Corail” handprinted linen to enclose the private salons in the heart of the church, giving its identity to the space.

Saint Joseph’s Arts Society is a place of constant celebration for fine art, design, food, fashion, literature and performance. The place offers multi-disciplinary arts programming, performances, immersive dinners as well as a collectible design gallery and curated retail experiences.

Le Relais de Chambord makes a new skin in Pierre Frey

Freshly restored with respect for its historical heritage, Le Relais de Chambord presents a contemporary decor perfectly integrated in the classical architecture of the monument. The Pierre Frey velvet selected in shades of burgundy and carmine evoke the nobility of the splendid Château de Chambord facing the Hotel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Used for the curtains, the Gio weaving and its glossy reflections bring brightness and brilliance to this exceptional place.

For this new edition of AD Interiors, the decoration rendez-vous organized by the magazine AD in Paris, the theme is “Rough and precious”. The event aims to promote the best talents of contemporary decoration. This year, it presents a selection of 15 agencies from the youngest to the most confirmed. The exhibition draws its richness from the gathering of varied styles: from minimalism to classical or baroque to the most conceptual or arty, all are the facets of our time. Four of these groups of interior designers have asked the Maison Pierre Frey to participate in their “carte blanche” to design very unique rooms.

From September 5th to 23th, at Hôtel de la Bûcherie 15, rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris.

The Snake, symbol of the new capsule collection with Victoria-Maria Geyer



Les Venimeuses

a capsule collection with the Belgian interior designer Victoria-Maria Geyer

The Belgian decorator Victoria-Maria Geyer is an inveterate lover of fabrics, materials and ornamentation. She is also an unconditional fan of The House of Pierre Frey, the fabric editor, who’s eclectic collections she often uses on her projects across Europe. It is therefore very natural that she would choose to present her sketches -fruits of her overflowing creativity- to Patrick Frey, artistic director of the House of Pierre Frey and historically known for working closely with artists. Immediately seduced by the motifs of snakes, a subject not often seen in the world of decoration, he agrees to edit them.


a daring collection

Working on a collection around the snake is a daring but thoughtful choice of Victoria-Maria Geyer who appreciates the symbolic. An innate femininity and a mystical power surround this animal, which has long seduced the worlds of fashion and jewelry. The serpent intrigues by its curves and fascinates as much as it is feared.

The collection consists of two designs declined in rust, night blue or «gun cannon», a range of colors dear to the decorator. One, in the spirit of the 18th century engraved animal planks, is made up of three snakes embroidered on a thick linen canvas.

The second is made up of Ouroboros, snakes biting their tail, a very ancient symbol representing the eternal cycle of life, self-fertilization and the fact of finding in oneself its own creativity. Hypnotic, printed in all-over, it exists in fabric and wallpaper.

Redimensionnement de F3343001_OROBOUROSVM_FREY56682 2

As Patrick Frey likes to repeat and Victoria-Maria will not deny, «creating means daring». With this collection, let’s dare to give back to the serpent its letters of nobility!

The new Natecru collection, a focus on wide-width fabrics


Natecru, a wide range of wide-width and very refined fabrics 


With the new NATECRU collection, Pierre Frey proposes an exercise in style by voluntarily restricting color palettes. After Natecru linen, Natecru wool and Natecru silk, this new collection focuses on wide width fabrics (approximately three meters wide).


Natural materials like linen or cotton are highlighted, and Trevira CS fabrics with an amazingly natural look complete the collection. A variety of weaves and embroideries makes for a broad selection of looks ranging from raw and rustic to sophisticated, contemporary and timeless. Whether evanescent, dense or structured, these fabrics mark a break with preconceived notions.



This collection, which includes intricate sheers, plains, delicate piqués and jacquards with striped, geometric or more traditional patterns, is a new take on wide-width fabrics and offers a broad range of materials and textures.

Yeti & Malou, exceptional wool



Malou and Yeti,
two new woven wools and a wide range of colors

Woven in the Pierre Frey mills in northern France, YETI and MALOU form a magnificent duo that highlight the expertise of the craftsmen and the workshop in the weaving of wool yarns.  Noble and natural materials, wools are categorically defined according to the coats of the animals from which they come, their selection and the climate where the herds graze. Yarns are very technical to weave and require material adaptations and precise know-how. Depending on whether they are carded or combed, the yarn flakes are more or less prominent, the appearance of the yarn more or less smooth and dry or, on the contrary, woolly and furry. YETI and MALOU complement each other and present 2 exceptional weavings of randomly embossed, mottled yarns, with long and sensual fibers.

Yeti, created in a 70′s spirit, is a plain wool, mohair and long-haired alpaca, ideal for upholstery. 

Malou offers a contemporary texture with retro colors and blends alpaca, wool and mohair.

Inspired by a passion for art, the Maison Pierre Frey created its very first collection of panoramic wallpapers: GALERIE. True works of art, these panoramics can be repeated infinitely to give the drawings exceptional proportion. From the contemporary canvas to the Portuguese azulejos, all are drawn by hand and come either from the creativity of our studio or from artists dear to the Maison. Varied, daring and limitless, GALERIE sublimates the walls and opens the door to another dimension.
