Artist's Dining Room in Valencia with Fringed Paper Walls

Published as: 
Fringe Benefits
Paper artist Pierre Pozzi uses his signature material to wrap the dining room walls of his home in Valencia, Spain.

Pedrali’s orange Frida 752 chair, two metal Tolix Marais chairs, and Philippe Starck’s Olly Tango seat surround a dining table that resident Pierre Pozzi wrapped in paper.

Seeking a slightly quieter existence, paper artist Pierre Pozzi relocated from Paris to Valencia in 2010. Soon after, he embarked on a three-year renovation of a 1,970-square-foot apartment, which now features a mix of modern furniture, original architectural details (like ceramic tile floors and crown moldings), and his own artwork.

The highlight is the whimsical, three-dimensional wallpaper in the dining room. Pozzi spent three weeks cutting eight-inch-tall, two-millimeter-wide lightweight paper stock into fringe by hand. Guests in Pozzi’s home are charmed, captivated, and intrigued by the effect, which he calls “frou-frou.” “I try to enchant,” Pozzi says of his work. “I’m happy that I achieved what I had imagined.”
