Street Art + Pierre Frey

This month (September 2015), Pierre Frey, the French luxury design house, released an exciting collection of fabrics and wallpapers called Street Art ( As the name suggests, the collection represents collaborations with street artists; one the American born graffiti artist, Toxic a.k.a. Torrick Ablack, and the second, a young French-born and based artist, Charles Pringuay.


Toxic was a pioneer of the early ‘80s NYC graffiti movement and a friend of Jean-Michel Basquiat. They were both members of The Hollywood Africans. Toxic’s Pierre Frey collection was profiled in Architectural Digest:


Our favorite print of the collection is Street Diptyque by Charles Pringuay (image below) (Link: It is printed on cotton canvas. Isn’t it fabulous? The color palette, color layering, the curving black and white lines, and the dripping paint. On chairs or throw pillows, this fabric could serve as a great inspiration point for the color palette and design of a room. We love the idea of mixing this contemporary fabric with vintage decor and also using it as a pop of color in a neutral color scheme.


It’s a shame the print is not available in wallpaper! Wouldn’t it look great in an entryway or powder room? A pretty, glamorous, and edgy jewelry box.
