As an invitation to travel the world, GALERIE 4 oscillates between exoticism, classicism and contemporary art. Guided by the desire for discovery, for delicate and sophisticated colors and textures, the Pierre Frey studio has invited various talented artists to write this new travel diary.
Passionate about Sicily, Jacques Garcia restored and transformed an old monastery into a Baroque-style residence, the Villa Elena. Located near Noto, this residence houses the treasures of Italian art collected over time by the decorator: ancient marbles, stuccos, majolica, tapestries, seating, and precious objects.
The Majordome line is inspired by the 1930s. The French decorative spirit was particularly fond of pieces that could be used to create a living room called a boudoir. In homage to Madeleine Castaing, antique dealer and decorator, the design of this collection includes classic cornice details, animal patterns and shiny velvet used in a very contemporary way and with a subtle elegance. The different elements allow to create sets that adapt to different types of uses. The day bed is complemented by poufs and armchairs to create places for conversations and meetings with friends.
Particularly committed to the preservation of this exceptional heritage, the Department is the custodian of the Braquenié, Le Manach, Fadini-Borghi, Boussac and Pierre Frey archives. As a place of reflection on the decorative practices of the past, it is a place of inspiration for the Studio and is open to interior designer clients from the world over.

ILES ENCHANTEES collection is a beautiful escape to the shores of the Pacific whose islands fill our imagination. The mere mention of them brings up heavenly images: being rocked by the movement of the waves, diving into the crystal-clear waters of a lagoon, enjoying the scent of flowers or contemplating the horizon in the shade of coconut trees.
This collection invites us to escape to a sweet of life where the wild and generous nature awakens the senses. The plant and mineral patter ns are declined in natural and ochre tones that connect us to the earth, to the mother-of-pearl of the shells, but also to the straw of the houses.
The designs, undulating to the rhythm of traditional songs and dances, reflect the blue and green colors of the infinite lagoons. The golden heat of the sun’s rays illuminate and sublimate the exotic designs. Open to the outside, the house becomes a landscape.
