Invite grace and timeless elegance into your home with this authentic Art Deco Daybed; fully restored by our skilled craftspeople.
Weeks of work were spent stripping this daybed back to its ‘skeleton’. It has been re-webbed, its double spring unit re-sprung and lashed, newly stitched ‘sausage’ edge and it has been padded with horsehair (held with bridle ties), fresh hessian, cotton felt and FR calico.
It has been reupholstered in a sumptuous, printed velvet by Pierre Frey, Paris and hand-finished with silken, black cord from Backhausen, Vienna.
The house of Pierre Frey, which remains family-owned, was founded in 1935 and is still headquartered at the same building, near the Palais Royale.
Throughout the years, Pierre Frey has expanded to include Boussac, Le Manach, Fadini Borghi and Braquenie. In addition to exquisite fabrics, their range spans carpets, furniture and wallpaper.
Ever since its foundation in 1849, Backhausen prides itself in the production of high-end textiles.
Craftsmanship, heritage, individuality and sustainability form the foundation of the brand.
Throughout its 170 years, the name Backhausen is synonymous with exciting collaborations ranging from avantgarde turn of the century artists to prize-winning fashion designers exhibiting their textiles at fashion shows.
All of Backhausen’s fabrics are produced in the Austrian ‘Waldviertel’ with a sheer focus on premium quality, aesthetics and natural fibre usage, coupled with innovative designs from the company’s one of a kind archive.
