Dear Diva Readers,

Known for its gorgeous hand-painted wallpapers, Fromental is a leader in the design industry, using traditional styles and elements but bringing them into the twenty-first century, making luxury wallpapers for the way we live now. Of course, they also produce luxury fabrics, often times adding hand embroidery depending on the client’s needs.
Keeping in mind that the owner is the former creative director of de Gournay, the Fromental look is informed by historical patterns, but isn’t married to them. They’ve taken these classic patterns and injected new life into them by playing with color and scale. Think classic chinoiserie in a monochromatic color story. And traditional isn’t the only look you’ll find at Fromental. Bold patterns playing off of the current London fashion scenes liven up the show room. And what I love is that whether traditional or modern, Fromental’s wallpapers make a lovely backdrop for antiques!
All of Fromental’s products are made to order, making it the perfect choice if you’re looking for something custom. Color, composition and technique can all be modified to fit each client’s needs. Isn’t that a luxurious experience?! Imagine ordering a customized wallpaper to use as a backdrop for a stunning antique console table. Divine! See for yourself—here are some photos from our lovely evening at the Fromental Showroom. Thanks to the staff for being such welcoming hosts and thanks again for that gorgeous dinner next door!
