The Savonnerie rugs played an important role in the prestigious French furniture's History. Louis XIII developed the Savonnerie manufactory by positioning the workshops along the banks of the Seine at the foot of the hill of Chaillot, in the buildings of a former soap factory –hence the name “Savonnerie”– that has since made carpet according to the knotted carpet technique. During the 17th century Colbert reorganized the Savonnerie by placing it, like at the Gobelins, under the artistic direction of Charles Le Brun. Therefore, it has known an extraordinary period of activity during which its production, exclusively reserved for the King, was used for creating diplomatic gifts or furnishing royal residences.

The Boccara Gallery has an important collection of French antique rugs from the 18th-20th centuries. This prestigious collection was formed over the years by Didier Marien. It reflects a precious history and a lifestyle where refinement is combined with an unparalleled attention to details. All these rugs are in perfect condition and come mostly from private collections. The French Savonnerie and Aubusson rugs in bring a unique touch to decorations and reflect a taste that marked the eighteenth century.
