If you want to find the place where the future meets the past, look no further than the 2017 Winter Antiques Show in New York City. You will find a booth there that will seduce you right away. It’s shared by the cutting-edge London gallerist known as David Gill, and the Paris-based queen of antique wallcoverings, Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz. This is actually the first appearance at such a prestigious event for David Gill. The two made a wonderful combination of both their styles and wares into a single booth. But, that’s not all, they got some help from a mutual friend. Mattia Bonetti is a French interior decorator and furniture designer. She was the one that made the wallpaper, and it perfectly complements the combination of antique and modern pieces.
The design of the wall coverings that were custom-made by Bonetti is called Carolle Lines. The background is lilac-stained and it is covered with vertical gold and silver lines. You can actually purchase this beautiful wallpaper for $550 per roll from the Thibaut-Pomerantz and David Gill Gallery. The wallcoverings can be described as a map of Scandinavian wilderness in the deep of winter or after too much absinthe, the mattress ticking went on a bender. It gives the perfect background for the glorious antique and vintage ceramics from Thibaut-Pomerantz and the wooly and wild furniture and lighting from David Gill. The wallpaper has a twisted sense of the meaning of chic and sets up different fragments of the rooms that can be split up into scenic panoramas with the size of a small room.
