Via Yves Delorme

Yves Delorme is celebrating its 25th anniversary at Green Spring Station, coincidentally on a day that also marks the anniversary of the retailer’s first-ever shop in the United States.  

Yves Delorme sells chic linens, housewares and soft goods, featuring whimsical, painterly designs. Embellished with floral and romanic prints and embroideries, each piece sings with inspiration from the French countryside in which the company was born. The shop also carries a number of high-end gifts, perfect for summer weddings, birthdays and housewarming tokens. All of it will be on sale for the weekend of June 8-10, to celebrate the quarter-century milestone.

The Green Spring Station location of Yves Delorme, which opened in February 1992, is the first of a 30-store chain in the U.S. market. French-owned and vertically integrated — meaning the company manufactures its own products — the 400-plus-location international textile chain is owned by the larger, historic Fremaux Company, one of the longest continually operating textile manufacturers in France.

Fremaux, which was established as a textile weaving mill in 1845 in Lille, France, was one of the few manufacturers of the European industrial era to endure occupied WWII-era France, as well as an early factory fire in 1867. Both The Fremaux Company and Yves Delorme are still run today by members of the founding Fremaux family, now in its fifth generation of ownership.
