After 175 years of constant activity, Braquenie remains one of the most prestigious textile manufacturers in France today. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Braquenie creations have been chosen to furnish and decorate chateaux, country mansions and private houses. This book traces the history of the Braquenie design inspiration and workshops from 1820's to the present day. Richly illustrated with designs and reproductions of printed fabrics and silks, tapestries and carpets, it is the first work to be devoted to a firm whose name is indissolubly associated with the development of the decorative arts in France. Numerous photographs of interiors also provide fascinating insights into an inimitably French art de vivre.
