Every year during spring time, most celebrated designers from all over the world come together and transform a luxury Manhattan apartment into an exhibition home for high end furnishings, design, art and technology. The event for sure is a must visit for all design enthusiasts and it truly brings out supreme interior design trends every year.
Now, what do we expect when two highly creative design teams work together? Of course, nothing but MAGIC. So, this year San Francisco’s Ken Fulk collaborated with the luxury wallpaper house de Gournay and together they put up a show themed “Animal Dinner Party”. WOW! Now that’s something not so conventional and I would be a liar if I say I never got lost in the whole theme while going through the pictures. On the motif, Folk created a fictional tale “Madame’s Magical Menagerie,” where exotic animals escaped from the local zoo and found the perfect haven in Madam F.’s backyard garden, making her famous dinner parties more lively than ever. The theme takes about 30 wall panels to convey the story and hand painting each of which took 150 hours by de Gournay’s artisans.
Monkeys, Penguins, Flamingos, Zebras amidst vegetation along with everyone’s favourite Polar Bear come together and put a whimsical show depicting sharp craftsmanship. The latest motif designed by Fulk has been added to de Gournay’s bespoke collection and is now available to purchase.
“Filled with childlike wonder and depicting the era of 1960’s this well, the place is meant to be at for poets, artists, philosophers or even tattoo makers”- the San Francisco natives adds on being asked by Architectural Digest.
