Illuminating De Gournay's Enchanting Showroom

Nestled within Shanghai’s old French concession, de Gournay’s showroom embodies the spirit of exceptional artisanal craft. Sharing de Gournay’s passion for craft, we were thrilled to create a selection of lighting pieces from our Icons Collection to complement each sumptuous room. Every piece has been carefully paired with hand painted and hand embroidered wallpapers, illuminating an enchanting journey through this fantastical oasis…

Welcome ‘Wisteria…

Who wouldn’t want to be welcomed into this inspiring showroom by wisteria in full bloom? This hypnotic design, seen here in ‘Limewash on Lead Grey’ dyed silk, has been paired with our Shiitake table lamp. This ever-popular table lamp features a leather wrapped stem in ‘Sand’ that perfectly complements the subtle blush shades within the hand painted wallpaper.

Soothing the stresses of the city with ‘Tsuro Cranes’…

Passing the staircase visitors are transported into an exotic wetland filled with curious ‘Tsuro Cranes’. The calming colourway of this design pairs beautifully with another of our Shiitake table lamps with leather in our ‘Sand’ shade and metal work in Antique Brass.

Ascending the staircase…

Our Lang wall lights draw visitors up the staircase having passed by a small version of our Round Odeon ceiling light.  The striking shade of the ‘Symphony’ wallcovering in ‘Jade’ silk duppion is the perfect colour to highlight the rich tones of our Antique Brass metal finish.

Dining with ‘Deco Monkeys’…

The showroom kitchen is yet another feast for the eyes. A pair of our Clipper Task lights can be seen with the amazingly detailed ‘Deco Monkeys’ on ‘Scarlet Lady’ dyed silk. The patination of our renowned Antique Brass finish pops next to this vibrant shade of red.

Easing back into city life with the ‘Namban’ cranes…

Last port of call before returning to the hubbub of the city is this invigorating sitting room which features the instantly recognisable ‘Namban’ wallcovering. Accompanying the ‘Polished Copper’ colourway is our perfectly matched Cep table lamp in an Antique Copper finish. Overlooking the cranes is our Sputnik ceiling light in a black powder coated finish.
