Known for her quietly sophisticated, streamlined interiors and calm, elegant furnishings, Californian designer Barbara Barry says she lives a life devoted to beauty. Her inspiration, she says, is drawn from the simplest of things, from the shape of an egg to the colour of water in the bathtub, but it's a simplicity that has served her well.
Her original yet classic designs are available through her own Barbara Barry Galleries in Bangkok, Moscow and Singapore and through partnerships worldwide with internationally renowned brands, including a long-standing collaboration with fine home furniture designer Baker, whose ranges include a 62-piece Barbara Barry Collection. It encompasses furniture from living room to dining and bedroom but also upholstery, lighting, mirrors and table-top pieces.
When she's not designing furnishings, award-winning Barry is creating interiors for homes, restaurants and stores and has published her first book,
Barbara Barry Around Beauty
, for Rizzoli.
