Since Antiquity, upholsterers have adorned the walls of bourgeois dwellings with sumptuous fabrics. After several centuries of wandering, the art of wall hangings is now regaining its notoriety. Unsurprisingly, say the most seasoned interior designers, since covering a wall, a section of wall or even a ceiling with a stretched fabric transforms a room into a real showcase. Whether it is a contemporary or traditional piece, each stretched fabric expresses an atmosphere with an assumed character.
The possible stagings are thus numerous: from elegant sobriety to refined extravagance via ingenious trompe-l’œil. In addition to its decorative potential, the wall hanging is also appreciated both for its sound comfort and for its thermal insulation.
Historically, French sheathing was established as a trade in the 14th century. Art sheathing then consists in the practice of covering furniture, but also objects, with fabric, wool, linen, silk velvet, felt, alcantara, or even leather. The upholstery (armchairs, chests of drawers, beds or tables) is thus a combination of traditional techniques and noble materials. Without forgetting these ancestral gestures, our upholsterers are attentive not only to developments in this know-how, but also to interior designers. We thus offer both the sheathing of panels to dress a wall or make a headboard as well as the sheathing of moldings to enhance cabinetry details. Truly anchored in the interior decoration of our century, sheathing combines tradition and modernity by giving free rein to creation.
