RESTRAINT, QUIET LUXURY AND EFFORTLESS COMFORT
Renowned designer Michael Berman has completed residential interior projects from New York to Los Angeles for an enviable client list made up of the business and entertainment worlds’ elite and hospitality design for The Fairmont Hotel Group. Berman’s products and interiors reflect his interest in history, art, architecture and nature. His work strikes an uncommon balance between timeless style and an of-the-moment relevance. Inspired by comfort, American Modernism and simplicity of form, Berman’s design work resonates with design industry colleagues. Berman is the founder and principal creative visionary behind Michael Berman Limited; a multifaceted design firm focusing on interior design as well as furniture, textile and product design for various industry partners. Bronze Studio, Berman’s Los Angeles based home furnishings showroom carries his complete line of home furnishings, vintage finds and accessories. Berman’s work has appeared in top industry shelter magazines including Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Luxe, Traditional Home and Architectural Digest. In 2016 Theodore Alexander introduced Califolio, a collection of furniture designed by Berman and inspired by the light airy style of southern California living. Signature elements of the collection include clean lines, modern shapes, softly tailored upholstery and well scaled occasional pieces accompanied by unique finishes and a desert-inspired color palette. The combination of finishes in the collection is much like its inspiration, a perfect mix of glamour and simplicity. This spring, Theodore Alexander will expand upon Berman’s highly successful first introduction, adding 33 new pieces to Califolio. “To dress the collection we’ve selected lush textiles that cool the skin, warm the heart and dazzle the eyes,” adds Berman. “Each piece is designed to be used individually or in a suite of furnishings. There is a thread that runs through this collection that incorporates my modernist influence and credo: restraint, quiet luxury and effortless comfort.” Several stunning additions to the Califolio collection include the Cactus Console, Ogden Club Chair and Plaza Sofa.
