gina berschneider furniture

y'all remember this, right?  my technicolor "palm springs" themed window from the la cienega design quarter "legends 2012" event last spring? well, besides the monkey (and teh screen from  grace home furnishings with the amazing black crow studios wallpaper), the star of the show was the pair of custom yellow chairs made for me by gina berschneider furniture... and guess what? YOU get an opportunity to purchase them this friday morning during gina's exclusive tastemaker tag sale on one kings lane! (11am EST/ 8 am PST). better get up early and be fast on teh draw- i might be buying them back all for me! i loved those chairs...
the design from teh gina berschneider archives that caught my eye
working with the shop foreman to customize my design, turning their stock lounge chair frame into a pull-up sized chair for my needs.
i always know my upholstered goods are going to turn out great when i work with gina- she oversees every detail.
meeting gina, rolf and their daughter natalie was one the the highlights of my "legends" experience, and i've had a blast working with them ever since!  upholstery is in gina's DNA, so our legends collaboration was completely delightful- from picking out a vintage chair design from gina's extensive archives, to visiting the factory to go over the details of the design (we altered the dimensions of the chair to suit our needs while keeping it stylistically in sync with our vision) and we learned lots about upholstery from gina herself (she is VERY hands on- this a family owned and operated business!)
the waterfall desk is a gina berschneider casegood piece available exclusively through the showroom

the "le grand" bolster back chairs and sofa are a personal favorite- overscale goodness for those cavernous so cal living rooms.

now, whenever we find ourself shopping on la cienega, we always stop into the spacious gina berschnieder showroom just to say "hey" and relax and chat for a minute, even if upholstered goods aren't on our shopping list for the day. the gina berschneider showroom also has a fabric sample room right in the shop with gina's own fabrics, as well as schumacher, highland court, edelman leather and loro piana woolens- so whether you want to design your own custom piece or choose one of gina's classic frames, it's one stop shopping from design to fabric!
gina loves an animal print. i knew we'd get along just fine...
and as we said for those of you who can't make it into teh la cienega showroom, gina is coming to YOU this friday via one kings lane!

i love you, chairy!
and when next you find yourself on la cienega, stop in and say hello to gina, rolf and natalie! tell them maison21 sent you!
