The Bianchini-Ferier Archive 1888.
Bianchini-Ferier was a leading fabric design house founded in Paris in 1888. Offbeat Interiors is in the enviable position of owning a collection of beautiful and original drawings of the fabric designs and scarves created for the likes of Hermes, Givenchy, Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent to name a few - and famously the artist Raoul Dufy produced over 4,000 designs for them between 1912-1928. Each of these designs forms part of an important overview of 20th century Parisian textile design.
