Luxury wall coverings tend to mean ornate hand-embroidered silks or
handpainted chinoiserie, both of which are stunning and both of which
Fromental does exceedingly well, but it also does the classics one
better. Tim Butcher (formerly of wall-covering stalwart de Gournay) and
his wife, Lizzie Deshayes, founded the company in 2005 and introduced
the downtown-cool Roger Thomas Collection, featuring Roche Facette
(above), made with silk painted to resemble precious stones and marble
scattered in the background.
