modern furniture and design. These days, celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields, Sam Worthington Drew Barrymore, and Tori Amos have graced the doors of his Bobby Berk Home stores located throughout the US. Even Will and Jada Smith sleep between Bobby Berk Home sheets. In 2009, his stores made the list of gay icon Rupaul’s Top Favorite Things, but Bobby says “I’m still waiting on that call from Oprah.” Bobby has made multiple guest appearances on HGTV, Bravo, TLC, and NBC lending his design talents on residential home projects to designing the sets of hit shows. His growing empire keeps him traveling around the world looking for future BBH locations, dropping in on his factories to check on new product designs, and working on his many design projects from Hong Kong to Miami. When invited by David Goodrowe and Tim Hobby to be a part of [The South’s Next Wave: Design Challenge at The Museum of Modern Art & Design in Atlanta, GA, he was delighted to return home to the deep south.
