The Museum of Decorative Arts presents

Wednesday, March the 2nd, 2016

Until June 12, the Decorative Arts dedicate two exhibitions honoring the fabrics and the wallpapers, two exhibitions which enlighten us on two techniques of decoration very current.

The first, the fabric, through a tribute to the Pierre Frey House. A presentation that plunges the visitor behind the scenes of the craft of furnishing fabric editor. This exhibition traces 80 years of creations and highlights the work and know-how of this major player in interior design. More than two hundred works, from the designer's collections, are thus unveiled. The opportunity to discover eclecticism and artistic collaborations. The exhebition ends the proposals of seven contemporary designers who interpret, in their own way, the codes of the famous house and its concepts: color, ink, history, material, pattern and rustling of the stuff ...

The experience extends with the exhibition "Make the Wall", this one plunges us this time in 4 centuries of tradition and style through more thant 300 emblematic pieces of wallpapers. A wealth of proposals that evolve throughout history, byt where recurring themes predominate: nature, travel, colors and shapes... The paper is now a big comeback, a choice of decoration sometimes daring but a real bias. Wallpaper is not just a covering area. He creates new universes, sensations or moods.

In short, run these two exhibitions that make you want to change the decor and put color and prints in our interiors.
