ArchiTel covered DesignEx 2013 as the official videographer, and covered not only the best of the show exhibits, but also interviewed special guest presenter Patrick Frey of Pierre Frey Textiles, covered the Northern Lights competition and profiled the NEST specially curated feature.

This fourth story is our one-on-one interview with Patrick Frey, CEO of Pierre Frey Textiles, the venerable French textile house established in 1935, that designs, creates and manufactures fabrics and wallpapers in the purest French tradition. The company’s rich collection of no less than 7,000 items includes not only the Pierre Frey designs, but collections from the company’s other three prestigious brands: Braquenié, Fadini Borghi and Boussac.  It is a French maison de luxe – a luxury design house an inspirational, family-owned business with a proud tradition which looks towards the future. Although Pierre Frey is traditionally a fabric and furnishing house, it’s also attuned to the modern world, which has led to the creation of equally stunning home accessories and furniture collections.

So please join our Host, ArchiTel Executive Producer Ron Brown, for our fourth and final ArchiTel DesignEx story.
