In Brussels, the Egmont Palace welcomes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Several years of restoration have allowed this building built in 1532, to find again a stylish and harmonious interior decoration where took place several items from our trimmings and hardware collections.
In the Arenberg passage, beige and gold tones BEAUGENCY tiebacks embellish the floral pattern of the curtains that perfectly completes the silky moss fringe of LES MARQUISES. The MEDICIS hardware collection sublimates the windows in a brass color chosen in 50mm diameter.
Further, the heavy blue drapes in the dining room are facing huge antique tapestries. They are adorned with the MARLY trimmings and their unique style and luxurious details: tiebacks , beaded cut fringe or a gimped braid highlighted by a large gold braid subtly placed below. Here on console brackets, MEDICIS poles and finials overlook and dominate this beautiful room.
Finally, we enter into the very bright Hall of Mirrors room, above the Minister's office. ANTICA gimped braid delicately decorates valances of the large windows. ANTICA double tiebacks and PALAIS-ROYAL piping cord dress perfectly ivory curtains and punctuate this smooth and elegant setting.
Completed in 1907, LE REGINA BIARRITZ building is one of the town’s architectural jewels. This prestigious setting captivated the crowned heads and aristocracy of France and Europe, influential business leaders, renowned golfers, artists and the greatest designers of the time.
Today, le REGINA BIARRITZ Hôtel & Spa has drawn inspiration from this legacy when developing its very contemporary universe. This iconic building known as “the Petit Palace”, is once again hitting the headlines after its major 2014 renovation works and renaissance of luxurious simplicity. Houlès is proud to have been associated to this renovation.
The decoration of the 65 rooms and suites was made within the framework of the renovation of the REGINA BIARRITZ Hôtel & Spa belonging to NAOS Group. Each room has a very special atmosphere whose every detail is inspired by the hotel’s history and is an open invitation to comfort and relaxation. Contemporary, stylized and adorned with glass pearls, tiebacks and fringes developed by Houlès (inspired from DIVA collection) come to underline the « couture » spirit of these sophisticated decors.

At the theater, the first step of the experience is the stage curtain, mysterious and spectacular. The Bolshoï stage curtain is in GOLD !
In October 2011, after 6 years of restoration, the spectators of the 236th season discovered the “gold stage curtain” of one of the most fabulous theaters in the world.
The original curtain sewn with golden threads, decorated the stage in 1955. In the 90’s, it was replaced by a new one, going on with a new period. But, it didn’t last a long time. The 2006 researches, showed several fabric defaults : the twisted fringe and the tiebacks were very damaged and needed to be restored.
In the mark of the restoration project, it was decided to create again the trimmings of the “gold curtain”. It became an important challenge for the professionals: create a new design, based on historical documents and made with modern materials respecting the new safety standards. Houlès, worldwide trimmings creator leader, took in charge the trimmings project, that is to say creation and fabrication. An intensive work and artistic approach allowed to elaborate prototypes, agreed by the State Restoration Commission.
Like jewels who are the elegant and final touch of a dress code…trimmings are the sophisticated and delicious finish of any decor…The current gold curtain “jewel” is made of a 24 meters long twisted fringe, constituted by 6 000 stalks (each one is 2 cm diameter) and of more 50 tiebacks. Every tieback, assembled by hand, is 52 cm long, weigh about 3 kg and ends by a metallic ring planned to be fixed to the "rifles", special catchers sewn at the bottom of the curtain and allowing to support this weight. All the trimming is made in not fire threads. The range of the colors of the threads, as well as the golden wire, agree carefully with the range of the fabric of the curtain.
The professionalism and the experience of the Houlès, as well as its department of design and artistic creation, allow to the company to participate to any such project all over the world. The trimmings made by Houlès also decorate the main curtain and the “loges” of the Saint-Petersbourg Opera and Ballet Michailovski theater.

The Elysée Palace, official residence of the French Republic Presidents, is one of the architectural masterpieces of the national heritage treasure.
In the heart of this historical house, takes place the luxurious “Salle des Fêtes” (reception hall). All the official receptions made inside can also enjoy its exclusive décor : majestic lamps, deep reds and different kinds of gold, Gobelins tapestries of the XVIIIth century or paintings of the XIXth century decorating the ceiling.
During the last decades, different changes were made to allow to this hall to keep its prestigious style. At the end of 2008, in the mark of a new decoration project, HOULÈS started to discuss with the Mobilier National. This institution is in charge of the furnishing, restoration and valuation of all the national palaces (www.mobiliernational.culture.gouv.fr).
Throughout this new partnership, Houlès as trimmings specialist, brought all its expertise and know-how in the development of special and prestigious projects. Several proposals were made to the Mobilier National, to be able to reach at the end, the perfect combination of style, size and colors, matching exactly with idea of the project.
Today, thanks to the new braids and beaded cut fringe (from Villandry and Marly Houlès collections), the 23 “panneaux” (panels) located at the top of the curtains, found again all their brightness : applied like embroideries, the braids compose the characteristic design made of volutes and curves. And the beaded cut fringe gives the elegant final touch to the decor.
