British designer Tara Bernerd runs Tara Bernerd & Partners, her internationally renowned interior architecture and design practice. Based out of London, Tara Bernerd & Partners are increasingly known for their hotel and yacht designs, as well as their private and commercial residential work.
Tara won the Andrew Martin Design of the Year Award in 2005, and her key clients include Thompson Hotels, Grosvenor Asia, Blackstone, The Berkeley Group, amongst a list of luxury brands including Aspinalls.
Tara began her collaboration with The Rug Company in 2008 with the launch of her Miss Shady hand woven tapestry cushion collection. The five cushions are a playful expression of Tara Bernerd’s individual style, each stamped with her trademark aviator print. Later, Tara added to her collection with 3 exquisite wool and silk rugs, Papillon, Honeycomb and Target, as well as a glamorous collection of velvet Tattoo cushions.
‘Colour, texture and detail are my passions and working with The Rug Company has been the ultimate in expressing this by creating a range of interior finishes, as there is no doubt rugs and cushions impact interiors dramatically. I have reflected my more serene side with Honeycomb, using subtle creams and mossy greys, in a simple graphic. Tattoo brings a little attitude and shares an edgier look, using velvets, leather and studs. The collection has been an energetic and fulfilling project, each piece tells a different story.” Tara Bernerd.
