NOBILIS: Latin adjective nobilis (is, e): Noble, distinguished, in good taste. This is the name that the founder of the company, Adolphe Halard, chose in 1928 when he opened a boutique at 29 Rue Bonaparte, between the Church of Saint Germain des Pres and the Beaux-Arts school.By surrounding himself with many famous artists including Suzanne FONTAN who was known for her ‘joie de vivre’ and romantic style, he became an editor of wallpapers and fabrics : the spirit of NOBILIS was born,blending updated tradition and favourites with a great concern for the quality of colourations, materials and drawings. The quality and high-end finish of its products and services quickly gave NOBILIS an international reputation.
From 1980, NOBILIS was established in European countries, the United States and the Middle East. In France, show-rooms inspired by the one in Paris opened in Lyon and Le Cannet. Present today in more than 30 countries around the world, NOBILIS is led by Norman Halard, and with its 200 passionate employees, epitomizes the elegance of the French spirit.The current collections offer a choice of 5000 references in stock and are of varied inspiration.
