Lalique and Fromental collaborate on ‘Hirondelles’

I don’t often report back on new collections or product launches as brands do communicate these pretty well and I don’t like repeating what’s already out on the web, but this collaboration between these interior super brands got me very excited. So much so, that I’ve been sending the images that I took at the press preview to a lot of my VIP contacts telling them to have a look.

The Hirondelles is a classic chinoiserie style pattern designed by master wallpaper designers Fromental. Being very careful to leave space for the finest crystal makers, Lalique, to add their magnetic Hirondelles (swallows) and dahlias to the design. Together, the design leaps off the wall and surprises you with the most beautiful light reflection off the silk paper and crystal pieces.

At this level of design, it’s always about the detail, and the find hand painting and embroidery sets this design apart. The clever use of magnets within the swallows, means that this design is interactive too. Obviously it needs to be installed on a magnetic surface, but you are able to move the swallows around, and that’s very special and unique.

Both houses are experts in their field and if you are lucky enough to land up with this design on your wall, you truly are experiencing something new and innovative.
