Location: Los Angeles
Specialty: Classically casual furniture and accessories by noted designer Michael Berman
Price Range: ($$$) High-End
Already successful as a designer for high profile projects in New York and Los Angeles, designer Michael Berman wanted to create a new line of home furnishings that represent a more casual sensibility. With the intention of getting closer to the end user, Berman opened a flagship store with his new brand, Bronze Studio.
NameTitle: Michael Berman/Owner
Open Date: 2013
Inspiration for opening: Inspiration is actually to get more in touch with the end-user and my core clientele on the street. It's really cool to be able to stay in the showroom and meet and work with the designers who purchase and specify my designs.
Merchandise Source: Bronze studio actually represents somewhat of a laboratory for me. I shop all over the world and all over the country and I'm constantly bringing in amazing found objects and items that we call curiosities. These items can be anything from a lavender 1950s Murano glass decanter to representation of a local desert ceramic artist's work in a earthenware.
Best selling item: One of the best selling pieces in my furniture line is actually the Falcon sofa (shown in photo #5 above). It has an amazing "Wingspan" designed back. Definitely one of the most comfortable and sexy sofas I've ever created.
Favorite store (other than your own): I love shopping at Gibson on Beverly Blvd. across the street from Bronze Studio. They have the perfect organic and well worn accessories and objets'd art that finish off a room and allow you to curate an original creation.
