Living Spaces partners with Berkus, Brent for 3 fall collections
LOS ANGELES — Top 100 company Living Spaces has partnered with designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent to launch three new collections for fall that include pieces for the living room, dining room and bedroom.
The designers say the three collections, named Gramercy, Pavilion and Galerie, are designed to be mixed and matched.
“Our new collections at Living Spaces are inspired by our travels and the things we collect and live within our own home. The pieces are designed to be layered in with what people already live with and love. Every detail mattered,” said Berkus and Brent. “We went through a rigorous design process, from the curve of a back to the height of an arm, we were a part of each piece from its inception to the final collection.”
The Gramercy collection is inspired by 1940s French design with details that include sleek molding, metal hardware, arched lines and tapered feet, according to the designers.
All collection pieces are in a cerused light oak finish which highlights the contrast between the wood grain and the rest of the surface creating a sophisticated look and texture. Gramercy draws on natural hues and elements such as Danish paper cord featured in the Gramercy canopy bed, TV stand, bookcase and round accent table.
Berkus and Brent said the new Pavilion collection draws its inspiration from 1970s motifs and French Art Deco influences with sculptural appeal. A Moroccan clay finish inspired by French design distinguishes the pieces in this collection that is mixed with bronze accents, marble and stone.
The collection features rounded corners and curved edges with faceted details on the Pavilion headboard and bachelor chest that provide three-dimensional texture.
And, for the Galerie collection, the designers said they paid a lot of attention to the details and the finishes, like ivory upholstery, cerused ebony finishes and blackened iron hardware, in order to bring a livable, contemporary feel to the collection.
Galerie is offered in an ebony finish applied on cerused oak and wire brushed to pull out the natural grains of the wood and create a contemporary, yet antique look and feel.
