Founded in 1928, Félix and his son André Houlès established the parent company, 18 rue Saint-Nicolas, in the heart of Paris, in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine area, the traditional district for upholsterers, interior designers and architects. In the Thirties, Suzanne and Pierre Houlès will turn this French family business into a company with international allure, and eventually transfer it to their children.
Today, the company is managed with great passion and enthusiasm by its president Philippe Houlès, who became enveloped in the world of decoration at an early age. Originally, wholesalers of upholstery supplies, Houlès has since developed its business to specialize in creating trimmings collections, and is now well-known as a worldwide leader. Always new high-end creations, expressions with historical accuracy,openness to current trends in decoration…and a strong presence worldwide…the Houlèsstory continues, with passion and ambition, for the past 85 years.
