PATRICK FREY Patrick Frey was born on March 1st, 1947. As the grandson of Rene Prou, the famed French product and interior designer who worked on many of the most notable ocean liners, the son of Pierre Frey, a textile entrepreneur and his wife Genevieve, a textile designer, Patrick fortunately inherited their passion for textiles. Patrick Frey became Creative Director of Pierre Frey in 1975 and added Chairman to his title in 1976. Since then, Patrick’s keen eye and business acumen have allowed the company to expand internationally and to include other brands under the La Maison Pierre Frey umbrella, such as Braquenie, Boussac, Fadini Borghi and Le Manach, as well as broaden the range of products offered to include wallpapers, carpets, furniture and accessories. Patrick is pleased that he is followed by his three sons Pierre, Vincent and Matthieu in this third generation, family-owned business originally started by his father in 1935.
