When revered design house de Gournay, famous for its intricate hand-painted wallcoverings in nature motifs, set out to open a second U.S. showroom (the first is in New York), San Francisco was a natural choice. Not only does it provide better access for clients in East Asia, but as founder Claud Cecil Gurney explains, “[S.F.] is a hub where technology and art thrive and drive unparalleled innovation.” Opening March 1, the showroom will offer the latest collections, bold new colorways of existing designs and the opportunity for designers to collaborate on exclusive custom papers. 3681A Sacramento St., S.F.; degournay.com.
