Barbara Barry

I spoke to a woman today who often visits my blog (and may also be a potential client :) and she and I talked about designer Barbara Barry and her beautiful furniture. I decided to do a post about Ms. Barry, whom I think is one of the most fabulous, talented, phenomenal designers of our time.
Shown above: Beaded Chandelier - so clean and sophisticated; Felted Wool Pillow - absolutely stunning; Low Ottoman - I love the detail of the base; it's just exquisite!

One of her classics, the Oval X-Back Chair and the Glass Front Cabinet, which is one of my favorite pieces!

Barbara Barry credits her mother for teaching her to always believe in herself and that "style has nothing to do with money and everything to do with how you feel about yourself." She is influenced and inspired by the quality of light, the colors of nature and the harmony of perfect proportion. I think all of these elements show in her designs, which are clean lined, sophisticated and elegant. What designer do you admire or find inspiration from?

  1. Congrats Jules!!! I am screaming on the inside for you. Very exciting! Barbara Barry is fantastic. I don't know many designers, but one that I'm somewhat familiar with & love is Josephine Sasso.
