Inspired by her iconic East meets West aesthetic, Hoppen’s new wallpaper offerings explore traditional Asian motifs, brought to life by de Gournay’s unparalleled craftsmanship. Made by the company’s expert artists, the designs incorporate modern embroidery techniques—including metallic threads, beading, and relief effects.

“I wanted to partner with de Gournay to demonstrate a lifelong love of their wallpaper and skills; to create a dream collection that encompasses everything I love about East meets West and that incorporates luxurious textures,” Hoppen says.

“Kelly has taken us in a dramatically different direction,” says Hannah Cecil Gurney of de Gournay. “The result is bold and contemporary. It has been exciting to use our historic techniques of hand painting and hand embroidery to create something so innovative and intrepid.”
