Tassinari & Chatel
Fontenay Collection
Pal+Smith loves Lelievre! What a stunning collection of fabrics ranging from classic to contemporary. I had the privilege of viewing some of the archival fabrics from the Chateau de Versailles last week at Stark. Absolutely lovely and such a treat.

"Marely" from the archives of Tassinari & Chatel.
A gorgeous fabric depicting a oval wreath. this fabric was created for the bed chamber of Louis XVI at the Chateau de Versailles.

Looms of Tassinari & Chatel still used today to weave the fabrics for the Chateau de Versailles.
What amazing history!
