A new collection from Pierre Frey, Eternel Eté finds its inspiration in Provence in the South of France, a place dear to Patrick Frey. “For me, Provence is profoundly alive, a region steeped in history, of great culture, a territory rich in contrasting landscapes,” says Patrick, who took his entire creative team there “to understand the creative power of this territory.”
The collection speaks to different aspects of Provence—the artists who painted there, such as Picasso and Fernand Léger, and its rich ceramics history. Some of the designs speak to the landscape of the region as well—the sun and, of course, the flowers. There are diminutive floral patterns like Fleurs de corail and oversized ones like Grasse and Pays d’aix, which command attention. pierrefrey.com
The Mural Collection
Designer Roxana Eslamieh of Manuka Textiles, known for hand-drawn silk screen wallpaper, will introduce a line of murals this spring, starting with Night Lotus. “Previous wallpaper collections were inspired by distinctive textures and geological formations found throughout the world,” says Roxana. “For the mural collection, I was influenced by the French Impressionist tradition of plein air painting, inviting the temporal beauty of nature into living spaces.” Printed on linen-textured vinyl, the murals are available in five colorways. manukatextiles.com
