Barbara Berry

Known for her elegant interiors and unadorned furniture, Barbara Berry's approach to design is practical, comfortable and timeless. Her recent work with Henredon is a library of products encompassing furniture, fabric, lighting, rugs, and accessories.

Barbara made it big with residential work and was followed with commercial projects like 6th floor of the Brooks Brothers' Manhattan flagship store, Gordon Ramsey's Boxwood Cafe in London's Berkeley Hotel, and Michael Mina restaurant in St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco; to name a few.

I would like to refer to her as a "jack of all trades" and a "superwoman" because of other projects she has done: product design, a bath line called "Barbara Berry Dream", and designed furniture for Mc Guire and Wedgewood.

Her work has been recognized and awarded by "Giants Design", "Designer of the Year", "AD 100", and "Star Design".

Here is her work: Barbara Berry Realized by Henredon (To clear up! She has Barbara Barry Company for interiors and Barbara Berry Realized by Henredon for furniture).

Room Setting

Tub Chair
Love the fine intricate emblem on the back.
Simply Elegant. The back resemble Neoclassical (Louis XVI) chairs with different crests.
Beautiful ice blue colour and shape. So pure.
Great crafsmanship with the skirt and pleats!
Another round back chair.
Danity, femine curved legs, with a masculine top slate shape. Love the opening.
Simply devine! PLush Embassy approves! Dining and sitting room material
One of the most elegant desks I have seen in a while; not my style but I can appreciate it!

NAMI is feeling inspired!
