Since this project, her rise to fame has been phenomenal, she has been the darling of the media ever since. To Laura’s credit she has achieved 180 projects* in just 3 years… and only 28 years old.

AN EXCERSICE IN STYLE
Pierre Frey & Laura Gonzalez On the occasion of the third session of Paris DECO OFF, a must for editors and creators of the interior design world to be held from 17 to 22 January 2013, PIERRE FREY revolutionizes its look and entrusts LAURA GONZALEZ, the young and talented interior designer, with the keys of its flagship Showroom.
This collaboration was inevitable!
Laura is enamored with PIERRE FREY and never grows tired of playfully using fabrics and wallpapers from the Maison for her various projects. As a young girl, she was inspired by Braquenié wallpapers in her parents’ home.
Today, it is with an astounding ease that she defies the rules of the game and infuses modern day decoration with an invigorating freshness.
Laura likes her sets to have a story, a common theme. Accordingly, immediately upon entering the showroom, she takes us on a journey to the roof of the world, in a tent on the heights of the Himalayas… A showcase of her creativity, the tour continues and leads us in eclectic and surprising places ; a boudoir, a chinese tea room, a child’s bedroom and a California living room.
A passionate advocate of reinterpretation, Laura surprises us with an elegant and unusual staged production of our new 2013 collections!
