Confession: We were all heart eyes upon hearing about Pierre Frey’s collaboration with J. Crew earlier this season. And because we’re still not over the legendary French textile and wallpaper company’s Alexandrie print gracing beach-ready scarves, bathing suits and tunics, we scoured our archives to pull 10 of our favorite Pierre Frey patterns featured in homes across the country.
Let’s just say the Napoleon III-style botanical print featured in the J. Crew summer collection isn’t the only tropical-feeling motif the brand has to offer. Now if only we could get our hands on an equally fabulous beach house to take full advantage of both companies’ offerings…
In the daughter’s bedroom, the linen curtains’ striking Pierre Frey print, called Futuna, brings a tie-dyed vibe in coral on cream, which provides tangy accents for grays and neutrals. The homeowners purchased the bed and the Delia chaise from Room & Board (Tour the home).
In the family room, Knoll chairs in Pierre Frey’s Nairobi fabric surround a table from Design Within Reach (Tour the home.)
A dining room by Sandra Seward reflects the use of carefully curated color in an otherwise neutral space. She furnished the room with a black steel dining table, dark chairs and cushions and a collection of historic engravings from a book by Raymond Lafage. The host chairs add an eye-catching punch with a bold stripe by Pierre Frey.
Pierre Frey’s custom Spirit swivel chairs allow people to enjoy both the ocean view and the fireplace. The custom shell-encrusted center table purchased at Leet Inc. in Clearwater, Florida, serves as a divider from another section of the living room (Tour the home).
The living room displays Christian Liaigre sofas–the lighter one cloaked in Pierre Frey fabric from Holly Hunt–from David Sutherland. Roman Thomas armchairs are covered with Scalamandre linen-velvet, while a Mattaliano lounge chair features Holland & Sherry wool plaid. A Uhuru Design coffee table and a rug by Beauvais Carpets complete the scene (Tour the home).
The living room features a Victoria Hagan Home Collection sofa in Nancy Corzine’s navy velvet; George Smith sofas from Monica James & Co. in green Boussac fabric by Pierre Frey; Victoria Hagan wing chairs in an Oscar de la Renta print from Lee Jofa; and Quadrille draperies. An Italian mirror from Wilson Antiques overlooks the setting, lit by a fixture from David Sutherland and Christopher Spitzmiller lamps. Accent pillows are by Fortuny and Madeline Weinrib (Tour the home).
The master bedroom’s sitting area offers seating from Travis & Company in Atlanta, in breezy Theo fabric. Colorful pillows wear prints by Osborne & Little and Pierre Frey, and the leopard textile on the O. Henry House bench is by Cowtan & Tout. The custom acrylic table, also from Travis & Company, keeps a visual lightness (Tour the home).
Pierre Frey fabric garbs the Lee Industries tufted ottoman at the center of the family room. The accent pillows on the Lee Industries sofa sport solids and patterns by China Seas. River views can be enjoyed through windows and sliding glass doors from PGT Industries, accented with Duralee drapery fabric and Samuel & Sons trim. The rug is from Flor Source (Tour the home.)
A Paul Ferrante chandelier overlooks the dining room’s citrus green chairs purchased at John Brooks, which feature Keleen leather seats and textured backs in Pierre Frey fabric. The arched wall niche holds an antique cabinet, open to showcase Still Life With Cherries, by Russian artist Polina Kuznetsova (Tour this home).
A dramatic floating onyx fireplace surround lit with LED lights sets the mood in the master bedroom. Pierre Frey linen-silk draperies complement the bed by Deirdre Jordan for Troscan Design + Furnishings; the floorcovering is from Tai Ping Carpets (Tour the home).
