French Textiles from Pierre Frey

by Lauren Setum

Bonjour! There it is, the extent of my French vocabulary. The rest of today’s post will be in English. Today, I’d like to use my much more extensive knowledge of the English language to introduce you to Pierre Frey, a luxury home furnishings line that produces textiles and wall coverings, as they say, “in the purest French tradition.” Here in Minneapolis, the line is available through Holly Hunt at International Market Square.

Dress Your Walls for Fall

by Lauren Setum

This is just a sampling of ideas, be sure to take a closer look at all the product from Peter Fasano on his website.
