The French design company Pierre Frey is an established brand in luxury textiles. A member of the prestigious Comité Colbert, the firm has produced over 7,000 items, whose designs range from traditional to contemporary. Founded in 1935 by designer Pierre Frey, the firm is now run by his son Patrick, and grandsons—Vincent, Pierre, and Matthieu. Since 1961, a majority of their products have been made at their factory in Northern France, helping to ensure their high quality.
Pierre Frey is known for original, colorful, and stylized prints, as seen in a recent collection, which was inspired by the art and tapestries of Jean Lurçat—a perfect example of how the Pierre Frey company reinterprets and brings vintage designs up to date.
