Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we take a look at Pierre Frey’s latest book by Patrick Frey, Matilda Goad new hardware collection, and de Gournay’s collaboration with HiNOTE. Written by Natalie Aldridge.
Pierre Frey: Textiles, Wallpapers, Carpets, and Furniture
While we often pore over extraordinary interiors, we seldom get the opportunity to take a closer look at the details that bring the interior to life. In response to this challenge, Patrick Frey, the son of founder Pierre Frey and the eponymous company’s creative director, has unveiled an expansive compendium of inspiration, drawing from their extensive archive of over 25,000 documents. Aptly titled Pierre Frey: Textiles, Wallpapers, Carpets, and Furniture, this book stands as an essential reference and a font of inspiration for designers.
Established in 1935, Pierre Frey embarked on a textile house journey driven by a passionate commitment to producing top-tier fabrics that celebrate the rich tapestry of French heritage. From enchanting brocades and captivating damasks to opulent hand-woven silken velvets and timeless woodblock printed fabrics, Pierre Frey has amassed one of the world’s most profound private textile legacies.
Through the years, the company’s legacy has grown by welcoming prestigious houses such as Braquenié, Le Manach, and most recently, Zuber into its family, expanding its already extensive collection. Their remarkable collaborations with revered institutions like the Louvre and the château de Versailles, coupled with their talent for adorning castle interiors and elevating stylish residences worldwide, have firmly established them as pioneers in the world of luxury furnishings, textiles, and wallpapers.
Released just this week, the book is a true testament to their unwavering commitment to timeless craftsmanship and innovative design. With the ability to seamlessly blend historical elegance with contemporary aesthetics, Patrick has done an extraordinary honoring his family’s legacy.
Matilda Goad Hardware
As every designer and design aficionado knows, finding chic cabinet hardware that doesn’t break the bank can be quite the feat. Interior design extraordinaire Matilda Goad has come to the rescue. This past week the London based designer dropped her latest edition of her coveted hardware collection, and we are in love!
What started with their iconic Scallop Lamp Shade, Goad has since evolved her company into a carefully curated range of home essentials, each infusing a modern twist into timeless staples. Her homewares, meticulously crafted in their London studio, bring a touch of distinctive elegance to any living space. With vibrant, candy-colored knobs with interchangeable backplates, this collection is no exception. It exudes chic versatility and a playful spirit. Take a look!
HiNOTE x de Gournay
While we will always be pro-snail mail at The Glam Pad, it never hurts to embrace a little nouveau technology in our lives. When it comes to expressing yourself through text messages, the options are somewhat limited. Enter HiNOTE, a newly launched app designed to bridge this communication gap. HiNOTE provides easily customizable, stationery-like templates that turn simple messages into beautiful greetings.

And to make experience even brighter, the digital stationary app has joined forces with the cherished British wallpaper brand de Gournay to create an exclusive, limited-edition messaging collection that’s truly one-of-a-kind. The exquisite hand-painted digital stationery showcases charming depictions of botanical wonders and wildlife, all of which can be entirely tailored to suit your preferences.
Whether it’s for elegant cocktail gatherings, festive dinner plans, or just casual messaging, we cannot wait to send hand-painted hellos. The collaboration is scheduled to continue until November 26th and is available now for free through the HiNOTE app.
