In this post – Toile de Nantes by Pierre Frey
I have been thinking about wallpapering a few rooms in my house and I cannot get the Toile de Nantes by Pierre Frey out of my head!
John Fowler and Nancy Lancaster
I want to use the pattern either as a fabric on a chair or curtains or as wallpaper! I cannot decide!
What appeals to me about this wallpaper is that it is based off of an 18th century design that originated in Nantes, France!
I love that it seems new and refreshing in the ikat pattern, but there is something very timeless about it.
Sarah Bartholomew has a love affair with the pattern as well.
It seems the blue color way, Bleu Ancien, is favored by the designers.
This is the Rose Ancien. I love it in this color too – in fact I would consider putting this in my office!
Beverly Field (Veranda)
It seems it did come in two other color ways as well but I cannot find the names of them!
I have some color ways of Toile de Nantes below and some similar copycat patterns I found in my search.
