Le Citizen Hotel and Gabi Bolton are happy to announce a pop-up store during the Maison & Objet fair featuring new Gabi Bolton cushions and wallpaper from September 7th - September 11th, 2012.
After the success of her first map wallpaper "The Soho Papers", English designer Gabi Bolton is hopping across the Channel to Paris to collaborate with Sophie Berdah and Le Citizen Hotel, to create an installation and pop-up shop. Gabi's "Parisien Papers" wallpaper will be pasted onto various walls throughout the boutique hotel and her new cushions inspired by the French captial and saturated with vivid sumptuous colour, will be strewn onto any available bench, sofa, chair and bed!
A francophile from an early age, Gabi is now exploring her passion for Paris with her latest wallpaper collection. Loosely based on an 1814 map of the city, she has re-orientated, adjusted and edited the city to create a print that has the Seine, its banks and bridges at its heart. An area that is imprinted on her memory,one that she endlessly explored as a teenager.She was constantly disoriented by the river, unsure of whether she was on the right or left bank as she wandered about. While this is not a reliable or accurate plan of Paris, it's Gabi's personal homage.
