Aluminati: Grey Area xx Bergdorf
It’s no secret that Bergdorf’s 7th floor is literally seventh heaven. That’s what happens when you combine the chicest kid’s clothes in Manhattan x one of the most luxe home accessory collections in the world, with a restaurant designed by Kelly Wearstler to boot. True Barney’s Home/Kids floor does have a more modern lean to it, but the 7th floor of BG IS old school NYC glamour. It defines it. Think: Children in plaid skirts and headbands + hotel silver. Anyway, they regularly revamp their floor. Obviously. But not only do they switch up the displays, they totally transform the vibe, and repaint or wallpaper the walls of the entire floor. The latest incarnation is this curation by Gray Area (the art world design shop I featured HERE.) that celebrates the work of aluminum artist Gregory Johnston. The entire floor was turned into a celebration of 6 year old boy/bachelor pad style- bar carts and model cars- with many vintage pieces and of course- tons of metal. I was in LOVE with this double sided brown settee. I thought I’d do some design spying for you, so here you go!
