De Gournay helps realise your dreams of a perfect interior. Whether creating a dinner service or Chinoiserie room, a 19th century French Papier Peint or a gold-leaf ceiling, each person who plays a part in bringing this item to life is trained by and works full-time for de Gournay. Our Artisans are experts in the types of clay mixtures, methods of glaze application and temperatures of firing for any piece of porcelain or, indeed, the correct choice of decorative detail and colour for 18th century inspired, hand-painted Chinese wallpapers.
This immense knowledge, down to the smallest of details, constitutes the unique strength of the company. Our artisans are artists. Our wallpapers, our fabrics and our dinner plates are works of art. In a hundred years time, they will be sold at auctions as valuable antiques. Each artist leaves a part of his soul in their creation and it is this ‘spirit resonance’ that distinguishes our work from machine made replicas.
