toile de jouy.

I’ve always loved toile fabric — for wallpaper, pillows, bedding or furniture. Toile de jouy fabric originated in France in the 1760s.

The original patterns usually depicted pastoral scenes; today there are many pattern choices and colors available. “Toile” simply means “cloth” in French, so that toile de Jouy literally means cloth of Jouy 🙂

I love toile’s classic look and also some of the more modern takes on it. Here are some inspiring toile looks!
