New San Francisco Showroom

img
de Gournay’s San Francisco showroom has recently relocated to a wonderful new space amidst the city’s booming arts and antiques district. Located on Sacramento Street, the new premises exhibit a refreshed identity within the city’s diverse design scene. The revitalised space reflects not only the city’s increasing lead at the vanguard of contemporary interiors but also de Gournay’s identity as a luxury interiors brand.

The new space celebrates Californian design throughout its most prominent installations. The entrance to the light-filled locale is installed with our ‘Botanical Studies’, hand painted in a crisp new Gardenia colourway – a composition of large scale botanical illustrations designed by West Coast native Michael S. Smith, which leads through to ‘Deco Dawn’ a 1920’s inspired gilded bas relief mural designed in collaboration with Ken Fulk.

“We felt it was important to highlight their wonderful work and imbue the space with a fresh West Coast feel,” says Jemma Cave, de Gournay’s design director, who notes Redwoods’ resonance with clients. “Apart from their admiration of the physical beauty, there is a very emotional reaction, a very relatable kind of feeling. They are home. And we have laid it out in a way for it to feel like home. Every detail, from the location — this transitory room/forest which leads you from one world to another — to the furniture to the fabrics to the props, is thought through.”

Beyond its Californian influences, this tour de force would not be complete without further de Gournay showstoppers: a new custom colourway of our ‘Houghton’ design, preceding a cosy corner with our embroidered ‘Deco Fishes’ on Caribbean Sea Slub Silk, and an embroidered ‘L’Eden’ in Moonlight colourway on Empire Blue Dyed Silk.
