The array of interior design events that we attend in any given year is staggering—from design week in Paris to events at ADAC in Atlanta and everywhere in between.

Interior Design Events

An example of how delectable these interior design events can be, Bruce made his way to the de Gournay showroom in Paris for a wonderful brunch during Paris Déco Off. The brand is known, of course, for sumptuous fabrics and the hand-painted perfection of their wallpapers. He made his way to rue des Saints-Peres feeling that pulse of anticipation in knowing he would soon be experiencing the exceptional, the fact that wallpaper was being hand-painted as he enjoyed delectable food brought with it a deeper pleasure than he could have imagined.

He watched one of de Gournay’s artisans hand-painting a panel that would grace the de Gournay Chinoiserie Collection and experienced fabrics that were just as stunning. He explained, “Taking it all in, it occurred to me that the excitement I feel for de Gournay is that the company understands that its mark is to help those of us who demand the best to realize our dreams when it comes to creating interiors. Whether our aim is to acquire a porcelain dinner service or 19th-century French papier peint, or to realize a Chinois-inspired room or a gold-leaf ceiling, each person who plays a part in bringing this company’s products to life is so highly skilled. Also a gracious host, de Gournay melded the sumptuous backdrop with exquisite food to create a feast for the senses!”
