Maison Thevenon, a quality partnership
Founded in 1908 in Puy-en-Velay (France), Maison Thevenon is one of those family companies which are committed to preserving and promoting French know-how. Manufacturers of fabrics from father to son (and daughter) for four generations, they weave their story of "luxury without arrogance" motivated by their common passion for French textile decoration, between elegance and fantasy.
110 years of know-how
Four generations have succeeded each other at the head of the house Thevenon since its creation in the town of Puy-en-Velay, in 1908. It was then a nascent lace production company, run by the great-grandfather, then by the grandmother of Vincent Thevenon, today at the head of the company.
It was in the 1980s, when Vincent Thevenon’s father took over the business, that the house took a real turn. Olivier Thevenon then launched into the edition of furnishing fabrics by developing woven and printed fabrics, as well as hand-painted fabric.
Meeting of art and crafts
In 2006, almost a century after his great-grandfather, Vincent Thevenon took over the reins of the company to perpetuate this craft which has its roots in Haute-Loire. Following in his father's footsteps, he intends to give a new creative impulse to the house, aware that "each generation has made its contribution."
Vincent Thenon thus surrounds himself with creators and designers, who share the spirit of the house, to breathe a breath of freshness into the textile decoration. As a supplement of soul brought by the creative universe of these personalities, new collaborations are born from these meetings.
Twice a year, the collection is renewed and enriched with new fabrics, the fruit of these artistic collaborations. A dynamism that sacrifices nothing to respect French tradition and the quality of these fabrics created in natural and noble materials such as linen.
Each fabric tells a story but also represents a stylistic and technical challenge that the family business strives to achieve in their workshops which bring together all the printing processes on textiles: creation and weaving in France, publishing and printing in Varèze, Italy.
Galerie 44 x Maison Thevenon
With their craftsmanship, their original and artistic creations, and these human values that we cherish at Galerie 44, we are proud to count Maison Thevenon among our partners.
Four fabrics particularly caught our attention for the creation of a recurring range of seats:
- Beige linen
- Black linen
- White loop
- Snowy white / gray
Their constant search for ever more qualitative, but affordable fabrics, and their creative dynamism naturally led us to imagine creations, even ephemeral capsule collections, imprints of their universe ...
