"The General Comptroller of Finance, Monsieur de Silhouette, had the curious habit of drawing profiles of his guests on the walls of his castle. He had been unable to carry out his reforms. At court, everyone laughed. His reforms are nothing but poorly traced shadows! To the Silhouette! Evil tongues, unknowingly and maliciously, made this brave Stephen of Silhouette popular for posterity!"

Founded in 2019, the French wallpaper brand Papier Francais is defined by the rediscovery, restoration, and revival of iconic wallpapers dating back to the French “Golden Age of wallpaper” of the 18th and 19th centuries. Papier Français’s inaugural N°1 collection emerged in partnership with the prestigious Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Papier Français selected 80 of the most acclaimed designs from the library’s archive – all of breathtakingly rich colors and intricate composition – to restore its document colorways in modern finishes. These historic designs have been digitally printed for modern day interiors.
