Inspiration: Pierre Duex's Traditional French Prints

According to Jennifer Dwyer over at The Peak of Chic, Pierre Duex had quite the Southern moment in the 1980s. While we weren't exactly studying textiles in the eighties (we were working on tying our shoes), we don't really see these patterns as dated so much as begging for new context...

The company maintains an up-to-date and surprisingly vast selection of prints on their website, with a clearance section that rivals Chinatown prices (we're hoping the quality doesn't leave as much to be desired). They also have a line available through Kravet, who, though they remain To The Trade only, are a great source of inspiration and do have a showroom here in the city.

More Madeleine Castaing than Laura Ashley, we think these traditional French fabrics could suit a much wider audience, and a variety of situations. What do you think?Via: The Peak of Chic.
