de Gournay Chinoiserie: Abbotsford design for 16 Queen Anne's Gate

This is a project I have been working on for the past year at 16 Queen Anne's Gate for my danish client Troels Holch Povlsen. Toels has a great passion for antiques, specially Queen Anne style furniture. His aim was to take back 16 Queen Anne's Gate to how it would have looked.

de Gournay's Abbotsford design is an unmodified reproduction of one of the most impressive surviving antique set of panels  that maintains the full drama and grand scale of the original. It is special for its densely packed finely worked renderings of figures, animals and exotic birds amidst flowering bushes of peony, finger citron, prunus, camellia, chrystanthemum and other flowers.

We took images of the stunning room last week with my friend photographer Natasha Polskaya.
