Sans titre-22019 New Fabric Collection


The TRIBU collection is inspired by South Africa. In the bush, the N’debele people developed non-figurative art based on colored geometric motifs. 



These motifs are displayed on the outside walls of their houses, thus delivering a strong and powerful message that contrasts strongly with the landscape. This graphic art, the main vector of their identity, is the prerogative of women.




Seduced by this double characteristic, la Maison Pierre Frey wishes to write a pictorial language in adequacy with our lifestyles. With complete freedom of interpretation, this collection plays on different rhythms and associations of contrasting colors. It is composed of jacquards, embroideries and stripes with various material effects.

The TRIBU fabric collection, with its exclusive designs, blends in with the wallpapers of the RITUEL collection. 

Together, these collections demonstrate the universality of graphic forms.

The house of the famous galerist Louis Carré has been chosed to set the TRIBU collection on decor.
This house, total work of art between landscape, architecture and design, is the only construction in France from the Finish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. It is in this temple of Modern Art that it seems coherent to us to make cohabitate Extreme North and South and to provoke the meeting between minimalism and colour. Furthermore, at the beginning of the thirties, Louis Carré specialized himself in Primitive Arts. This artistic encounter was thus somehow predestined…

A beautiful alcove covered with the iconic Le Manach print “Taraz”

For the high-end interior design Fair Rooms with a View in Southport, Connecticut, the American studio Brooke Crew Interiors designed a beautiful alcove in collaboration with Sarah Kaplan, giving a warm, oriental and mesmerizing atmosphere. 

The event gave a free 6 by 8 space to the selected decorators. For this 24th edition, the theme was “Gather Together”.

A l’image d’un petit boudoir, canapé de velours à franges aux matelas rebondis et fauteuils anciens, l’atmosphère du lieu se veut enveloppante. Les murs sont entièrement tapissés de l’imprimé sur coton iconique Le Manach “Taraz”, dans ses nouvelles colorations éditées par la Maison Pierre Frey en Septembre dernier. Le motif se retrouve sur les abats-jours et coussins tandis que l’on observe également une autre des références phares de Le Manach au travers de l’imprimé “Mikado” arboré en coussin trônant sur le canapé. Like a little boudoir, velvet sofa with fringes and bouncy mattresses are associated with antique armchairs into an enveloping atmosphere. The walls are entirely covered with the iconic Le Manach print on cotton “Taraz”, in its new colorations edited by Pierre Frey last September. The motif is also found on the lampshades and cushions while we observe another of the famous references of Le Manach through the print called “Mikado”, displayed as cushion on the couch.

The whole has a true coherence. The interior gives a pronounced style, offering a XVIIIth century mood but staying very contemporary thanks to the shimmering colours. The place celebrates the beauty of noble materials and shows a precise attention given to every detail.

Trend 2018 : The Ultra-Violet and its History / The Archives’s Gazette


The year 2018 sacred of Ultra Violet is coming to an end. Before celebrating the Living Coral color announced by Pantone as the new 2019 major trend, let’s have a look back on this enigmatic and mesmerizing hue throughout history. Deep and changing colour, resulting from different mixtures over time, nuance both adulated and hated, the ultra-violet retains a strong identity full of eloquence and mystery …

 The new Carine Gilson‘s flagship store by David/Nicolas honors Pierre Frey’s wallpaper and fabrics

The duo David/Nicolas sign the first flagship of the luxury lingery brand Carine Gilson.

Famous for their high end custom-made interiors and furniture, the Lebanese duo David/Nicolas inaugurates their first flagship store for the luxury lingery brand Carine Gilson in Brussels. The designers have conceived a contemporary boudoir, finely finished in order to embody the sophisticated delicacy of the underwear collections of the Belgian designer. The space surrounds man with a soft and intimate sensation which is extremely refined thanks to the choice of the materials. The polished shine of brass, the elegance of marble and the warmth of wood come to match the subtlety of  the silk wallcovering “Zia” and the haptic light of the “Medium” velvets blush and celadon which upholster the furniture pieces. The store is sensual and tactile as the delicate, silky and satiny clothes it represents. Elegant and feminine, the place pays tribute to the beautiful and thin laces.

This timeless and ultra-sophisticated project is a tribute to la Maison Pierre Frey and its products : the pearl grey wallcovering “ZIA” brings a soft atmosphere with the neutral tone of its silk pannels.  The velvets “Medium” blush and celadon embody the color palette, which is very nude and natural. They give a comfortable softness to the space with their skin’s touch, emphasizing the intimacy and sensoriality of the lingery store.

Thought down to the smallest detail, the place is marked by a recurring decorative element, a specially created emblem found in the details of furniture finishes or in the design of the handles. It is a stylized brass wing carved with infinite precision by a precious goldsmith workshop in Italy.

O.Joannen, Pierre Frey’s master weaver honored Knight of the Arts and Letters


Pierre Frey’s Master weaver Olivier Joannen honored Knight of the Arts and Letters

Artisans Comité Colbert 2018  © Julio Piatti

Thanks to the Comité Colbert, whose aim is to valorise excellent craftsmanship to give young people a will for heritage, Olivier Joannen has been honored Knight of the Arts and Letters.

To maintain inherited know-hows from the XIXth century is an evidence for the Maison Pierre Frey as its wish is to preserve the French excellence heritage.  Thus, it is with great pride that it sees the exceptional work of his talented weaver honored.

Olivier Joannen started at 17 years old to learn the work of handweaver, a particularly rare craft today that he is now the only one to master at the Maison Pierre Frey. Teached by a “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” and a Master of Art, he became years after years a skilled expert in this field. He first learned  how to knot different kind of yarns before mastering the use of the looms, from the simpliest which is the dobby loom that makes plain fabrics, to the most complicated which is the Jacquard loom, allowing the realization of specific patterns such as the iron velvet, the damask, lampas and the brocatelle.


It is on one of those Jacquard looms from 1850 that Olivier Joannen works, settled in the heart of Pierre Frey weaving atelier certificated Living Heritage Company/ Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant, in Montigny en Cambrésis, in France.

The work of Olivier Joannen is extremely complexe. It is not only a technical prowess but also a human adventure as the weaver involves himself physically and morally in the making of his fabrics. Like a still walker, he constantly presses on the treadles in order to raise the warp yarns and then, with his arm, places the irons and throw the shuttle with the weft yarn inside. The sumptuous fabric was slowly born from these repetitive gestures which need both strength and delicacy, requirement and patience.

Above the fabric, we see the intimate relationship that links the craftsman to his work and which makes this one unique.

Some EXTRAORDINARY statistics!
• For 1 meter of cutted velvet producted in one day, the weaver
gives 4200 treadles kicks, introduces 600 irons by hand and
1200 weft passages with the shuttle ; He gives 1800 movements with the reed, he cuts 600 times the rabot yarns and extracts the 600 irons after cut.
9742 warp yarns are disposed on the loom in 65 cm wide, meaning 150 warp yarns per centimeter.
1 week is the time needed to set up the loom for the weaver for a new weaving project with new colours.
• Olivier Joannen weaves around 200 meters of silk velvet per year  with one meter a day, whereas a weaver working with industrial electronic techniques can produce until 500 meters a day by driving 10 machines simultaneously.

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.

legKen Fulk - Church8631

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 Conti Restaurant


A unique carpet adapted from the famous Braquenié embroidery “Le Rocher” for Le Conti Restaurant in Paris

Located between Etoile and Trocadéro, Le Conti restaurant was already a must adress for the amateurs of Italian gastronomy and  admirers of the wooden luxurious ancient Venetian theaters. The place has made a new skin this year by addressing young French-Lebanon interior architect Bilal Deshayes.

Le Conti_Bilal Deshayes_Paris FR_03_TA-B-Le Rocher_©Pierre Frey


 After starting his career with Laura Gonzalez, famous figure of the current Parisian decoration world, Bilal opens his studio in 2016 and successfully achieves several interiors of Parisian restaurants, all accomplished with the same care on crafts details and a taste for classicism, respectful of History, elegant and timeless.

The Le Conti restaurant is the same. Bilal Deshayes has respect the original identity of the warm and intimate place which, according to him, “already owned a true soul“.



Faithful to this spirit and to the desire of refreshing the place without distorting it, the decorator sought to highlight the classicism of the restaurant by assembling more neutral contemporary elements to traditional ones. The woods are lacquered in black, walls are painted with an emperor red and, true signature, the decorator calls on La Maison Pierre Frey for the design of a made-to-measure carpet covering the entire floor of the place.



Thanks to the advices of La Maison Pierre Frey’s experts, the iconic Braquenié embroidery “Le Rocher” has been chosen for being transposed in the carpet’s pattern. The result is splendid and testifies the talent of Pierre Frey’s carpet design Studio to transpose drawings and techniques in convincing pieces.
