In the tradition of past years, the Fall Antiques Show is thrilled to be working with a renowned architecture firm on the Grand Entry Hall display. This year, the New York and San Francisco-based Ike Kligerman Barkley will be working with designers Geoffrey De Sousa, Fisher Weisman and Allison Caccoma to bring back the Designer Vignettes, which will incorporate pieces from the dealers on the floor and will be lined with custom wallpaper designed exclusively for de Gournay.

“de Gournay has had the pleasure of creating three completely unique hand painted wallpapers, designed exclusively by three talented and esteemed San Francisco-based interior designers; Fisher Weisman, Allison Caccoma and Geoffrey de Sousa. Each wallpaper corresponds to the theme of each individual vignette; Antiquities, 18th Century and Mid-Century Modern. Working on these three custom projects has been an exciting and extraordinary project for de Gournay that we shall remember for a long time to come. We hope you find these wallpapers as inspiring as we do. Thank you to the talented designers whose visions created them.” – Hannah Cecil-Gurney

Across the hall, Philip Bewley has curated a phenomenal Loan Exhibition of exquisite timepieces that tell the story of how we have kept time through the ages.
