When Benjamin Ravan founded Décor de Paris in 1995, he wanted to bring some of the beauty he had witnessed throughout his travels to the world of fine textiles and trim. His first company, Fleur de Paris, had specialized in the wholesale distribution of needlework and accessories for more than thirty years and today is the third largest distributor in the United States. Since the move into textiles, Décor de Paris has consistently offered a fresh approach to recreating classic design for the needs of a modern marketplace.
With clients primarily in hospitality and high end residential, there are many design challenges to meet. Not only is there a certain aesthetic level to be achieved, but there is a fabric usage to consider. Fabrics utilized in public spaces need to meet stringent safety code and durability standards, while residential clients expect easy care, stain resistant solutions - and both expect impeccable quality. Décor de Paris therefore only works with the finest mills that employ the best manufacturing technology. More than this, Decor de Paris understands the fast pace of today's marketplace and stocks their fabrics and trims for immediate shipping.
