King Charles X was among those bewitched, inaugurating a new Egyptian museum at his Louvre palace in Paris and appointing Champollion as director. Now French textile house Pierre Frey has launched a stunning new collection in collaboration with the Louvre museum, honoring the 200th anniversary of Champollion's discoveries. The collection, Merveilles d'Egypte, includes wallpapers, fabrics, and rugs, with faithful reproductions of Egyptian artifacts from the museum, along with fanciful interpretations created by Pierre Frey studio and artist Louis Barthélémy.
