De Gournay and Ken Fulk’s Central Park zoo-inspired wallpaper

Known for wallpapers, fabrics and porcelain that are pieces of art themselves, de Gournay has now collaborated with San Francisco interior designer Ken Fulk to create a magnificent new wallpaper collection.

de Gournay said the range was “imagined as the interior of a 1960’s doyenne of Upper East Side polite society”, and features “a menagerie of animals from the city’s zoo abounding within her exquisite garden, having escaped their lesser lodgings in Central Park”.

The motif is based on 19th century European wall-coverings, which showcased elaborate narrative vistas. With this attention to detail and being painted by hand by de Gournay’s in house artisans, each panel can take up to 150 hours to complete.

So take a look below and see if you can spot the leopards, tigers and giraffes, zebras, elephants, flamingos, parrots, monkeys and even a polar bear!

This new motif will be a permanent addition to de Gournay’s design library and available to order from its showrooms worldwide. Please contact Bernadette if you are interested in finding out more.
