Pierre Frey Fabrics and Wallcoverings
Pierre Frey is a French luxury goods house which is still 100% family-owned: this is first and foremost the story of a family. The story of an inherited passion, handed on with both fidelity and inventiveness across three generations.
The colour Blue , present on all continents, is the common thread of this collection, which comprises of jacquards, embroideries, prints, wide-width sheers and plains. The colour range is voluntarily limited to the different shades of Indigo, which offers a variety of captivating chromatic vibrations.
The Himalaya collection is a continuation of the Atmosphere collection of 2012. Using natural fibres such as silk and cotton to achieve both refined and rustic effects, the combinations dare all mixes. Embroideries, velvets, jacquards, plains and stripes are declined in mineral tones such as black, brown, ochre, beige and white; and are a reference to “the roof of the world”, as the Himalaya mountain range is often referred to.

The Family Firm
Pierre Frey was born into a bourgeois family in Northern France in 1903 and grew up in an elegant world among music-lovers and antique dealers. In 1935 that he set up his own business, creating Pierre Frey. War followed soon after, bringing difficult times with it until finally, in 1945, the business started to take off.
Fortunately Pierre Frey’s only son, Patrick, shared his father’s passion for fabrics and continued the business. Combining respect for the past with a vision for the future, Patrick Frey, his wife Lorraine and his three sons, Pierre, Vincent and Matthieu, share their love of outstanding workmanship, their passion for detail, their enthusiasm for creativity.
Every day this great family works to make Pierre Frey what it always has been and always will be: a “maison de luxe”.
