Bobby Berk Home on Bravo TV

Former Project Runway alum, Chris March, has something up his sleeve in Mad Fashion. From start to finish, viewers will see March and his eccentric crew as they slave away in his studio that was designed by TugStudio with furnishings by Bobby Berk Home to create one-of-a-kind designs for his high-profile clientele. No creation or idea is too crazy for this team as they design Jennifer Coolidge’s Mardi-Gras float ensemble and model Chrissy Teigen’s gown for the MET Costume Gala. Tensions rise as March pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients’ comfort zones. In the end, will the design fulfill the client’s fashion fantasy or will it turn out to be more than they can handle?

Heavy Metal

Urban Case 1.2 Dining Chair

Have you ever noticed how beautiful and modern the fusion between wood and metal is? We absolutely love the combination! Wood has always been a classic and timeless material used to manufacture the most elaborate pieces of furniture in the market. Another obvious favorite of ours is metal. Its contemporary and sleek appearance brings a more modern and industrial style to any home. Now, why don't we try both materials together? This hand crafted 1.2 Dining Chair ($750) is the perfect example! The walnut frame with aluminum accents is a particular favorite of ours. Add the wool German army surplus blanket cushion, and you have a one-of-a-kind dining chair!  Here are a few more of our finest hybrid pieces. Check it out!

Veridis Storage 602 
Take a look at another great example of the ever popular metal and wood combination. The powder-coated aluminum is a great way to bring a modern twist while adding just enough color to your space. The Storage 602 ($1,650-$1,800) is yet another perfect marriage of two simple materials into boundless possibilities. The shelves are available in two different widths and three different heights, giving you the opportunity to change your storage unit however you please. 

Ilex Side Table

The Ilex Side Table ($350-$450) can spice up an otherwise boring color palette, while also bringing a unique design into the mix. These pieces (and many others by Elemental Living) while both practical and functional, are also undeniably stylish! 


And last but most certainly not least, are the Gus Modern pieces. These sleek designs, from the straight edges to the solid wood finishes, are a great choice for any range of interiors or design style! Do you (like many others) have old furniture that you just can't seem to part with? These stainless steel accents go hand in hand with any finish or textile, so match it with your old leather couch, and voilĂ 
Gus Modern Bishop Table
