the san francisco design district is changing. the san francisco design center (sfdc) is consolidating. jackson square is diversifying. contemporary design showrooms and clothing retailers are opening. while, some antiques dealers or art galleries are consolidating, relocating, or closing. sacramento street is evolving as a leading design destination.
on 1 march 2017, de gournay opened their gorgeous new showroom on sacramento street. when i lived in london, i loved visiting the de gournay showroom in old church street en route to my favorite fulham road antiques dealers. so, i am delighted to welcome de gournay to san francisco.
de gournay is best known for their hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper. their artisans are artists. so, de gournay wallpaper could be considered a work of art.
