Designers I'd Like to See Published More: Briger + Briger



Here's my second installment of designers whose work I'd love to more of.  Paul and Cris Briger first came on the design scene as makers of custom-designed furniture and then evolved into a full service design firm, Briger + Briger.  Lately I've been drawn to more classic and traditional interiors and admire  their flawless execution combined with unique elements and accents. The stone column of this fireplace was originally intended for outdoor adornment but then was cut down to dress up this interior chimneypiece.  The lamp of stacked books was made for the house as well.




Creative and beautiful.  I'm also noticing the tall, wide vase they used to display the hydrangeas.





Even though  I wished their work would find its way into more shelter magazines, they did have a fabulous book published by Rizzoli back in 2007 - Briger + Briger: Comfortable and Joyous Homes, City, Country and Lakeside, photography by Michel Zabe.  The upside to discovering a book years later is that there are well-priced used copies available.   I've recently added it to my collection and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Interesting, and warm. Love the use of vintage pieces. I too like to go through old books. I could look at the pictures for hours.

I bought this when it first came out. You are the only design writer who has ever mentioned it and I read a lot of books and blogs! It's still one of my favorites.

I love the lamps with the books. This could be attainable as a DIY. Also, love the topiary and the sconces. Are the topiary living plants? But the console table with the horse legs are a little creepy.

Yes! Be fun to see more of that first living room. The lamp on the mantel provides a nice ambience.

I see why you adore their work, everything is so beautiful. I love traditional and classic designs too! I wish that fireplace would magically appear in my home!!

I adore photo no. 7. The walls are like rich cream. I'm worn out with sticks so I wasn't fond of that one. I want a Santos cage doll so badly but so far one I like hasn't presented in my price range. Stay warm!!
