Pappilon is a mother, daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old. Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of unique antique pieces that makes us love what we do. The philosophy we both share is 'Things of quality have no fear of time'. Antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style. At Pappilon we pride ourselves on seeking out items for the home by selecting unique pieces of furniture and furnishings not simply as a ready-made style but where each individual item has something to say for itself, much like the individuals who buy from us.

Striking Gouache painting by Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) Design for a pattern for Bianchini-Férier dating from the early 20th century.  Depicting vivid floral arrangements - of triangular form which would have been executed as a design for a textile such as wallpaper or scarves. Framed in a 19th century French frame, featuring original paint. This work has excellent provenance having been sold by Christie's in London on the 16th November 2000. Painter, draftsman, textile artist, and printmaker Raoul Dufy is remembered for his colorful, playful paintings of landscapes, interiors, and scenes of leisure—at the regatta, opera, and races—along the French Riviera. Though he experimented with other styles, he was a devoted follower of Fauvism. Dufy initially looked to the Impressionists for inspiration but was forever changed by his exposure to the vivid canvases of Paul Cézanne, André Derain, and Henri Matisse. He worked with watercolor, charcoal, oil, and acrylic, imbuing his scenes with liveliness as he painted his figures in rapid strokes atop thin washes of color. Dufy’s work was well received during his lifetime, and in 1952, he won the International Grand Prize for Painting at the Venice Biennale. Today his work belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, and the Musée d’Orsay, among others, and a number of his paintings have sold for more than $1 million at auction.
