Chicago interior designer Jessica Lagrange launched her eponymous firm in 1998. Seventeen years later, she’s a leading lady of design, whose portfolio reflects an uncanny ability to create beauty all along the style spectrum, from hyper-traditional and ultramodern.

Fromental is one of our favorite examples of a design-centric company that marries historically rich ideas with modern-day sensibilities. The exquisite wallcoverings—handpainted and then embroidered in fine silk and metallic threads by artisans in Suzhou, China—pay homage to the long history of humanity’s love affair with silk and to Europeans’ long-held devotion to Oriental objects and images….
