A while ago on one of my trips to San Francisco, I visited one of my favorite boutiques, Sue Fisher King. She had some fabulous pillows from Antoinette Poisson. I had never heard of Antoinette Poisson before, she told me a little history of the company, and now I have done my own research.
Antoinette Poisson is a Parisian atelier located by the Bastille that creates hand-blocked and hand-painted wallpapers, known as dominos, that are either reproduced or inspired by 18th century dominos.

The company is named after the Marquise de Pompadour (her actual name is Jeanne Antoinette Poisson).
There are currently 14 patterns that the company creates. Four are exact reproductions, four are reimaginings of the old, and the rest are the company’s own design.
Dominos were originally made to cover the interior of chests, cabinets, or small rooms. They are 32x42cm each and go for approximately 50 euro each.
They create the patterns in several color ways.
Isn’t it lovely?? I love this paper.
In the picture below, you can see a remnant of an old domino and then the newly recreated one in the background!
Here someone used their creations to line a cabinet! Don’t you just love it???
Thought I would include some pictures of their pillows so you could enjoy the patterns!
Also, I found these cute little garden maps they have created!!
So, what do you think? Have you ever heard of this company?
If you are interested in reading more about this company, I highly suggest checking out A Gent of Style – in this post they actually visited the shop and have tons of beautiful pictures!! There is also this article from House and Garden UK, and this one from architectural digest.
