In 1791, the Paris Manufacture Jacquemart & Bénard succeeded the Manufacture Révéillon destroyed by the Revolutionaries in April 1789. Therefore and until 1809, the Jacquemart & Bénard manufacture will be renowned throughout Europe. Very creative, it produces more than a hundred models of wallpaper every year. It is especially good at reproducing plant-like motives as well as light and diaphanous fabrics according to the fashion launched by Queen Marie-Antoinette (embroideries, trimmings, ribbons, lace, festoons of precious stones, pleats, draperies, texture effects…). Not only the Manufacture takes part in the decoration of public buildings, but it is also involved in official ceremonies. For example, it was commissioned by the Convention Government to decorate the Palais des Tuileries.
