You would have thought that Persian motifs and geometric design could coexist in the same space? Obviously India Mahdavi and De Gournay!
Leave it to India Mahdavi, the reigning queen of colour, to show us that controversial orange and purple can be utterly sophisticated.
Colourful rocks, gold leaves, and otherworldly modern design creations make this collaboration between India Mahdavi and De Gournay so whimsical that you will want to dive into this contemporary art world and never leave.
The renowned Iranian-French designer behind London’s Sketch restaurant and Ladurée in Beverly Hills recently reimagined wallpaper fabricator and design brand De Gournay’s Paris showroom as a part of Deco Off 2020, an annual contemporary design event where luxury fabric houses show off their latest collections. Violet and tangerine were at the centre of her eye-opening palette.
The two rooms in the private apartment couldn’t be more different. The large lounge space features her new scenic Abbassi in the Sky print, which was inspired by Persian miniature paintings from the 16th century. Aren’t you just completely head over heels with this furniture design?
Just because India Mahdavi chose to use a vivid colour palette, it doesn’t exactly mean that you should go in the opposite direction with the room decor. Actually, the designer went the same way and made the entire scenario at De Gournay‘s showroom, even more playful.
