Bergamo Fabrics & My Work

When you are next in Venice make sure and make a little stop at the Rubelli Fabric Headquarters . I have included a little map for you. And you can get more info at their website.

I use the Bill Nessen Showroom at the DCOTA ( Design Center of The America's ) in Dania Beach Florida for my Bergamo source. It is really the most wonderfully run showroom in the entire building and Bill Nessen is ALWAYS there. He is THE BEST !!!!
Any way, Bergamo carries Rubelli Fabrics ,( I am not sure how it works, I never asked ) so where ever you find a showroom that carries Bergamo, you are good to go. They will have the whole kit and caboodle.
Now this is a silk ( antique-linen-style) velvet which is so beautiful, and they have very rich colorways.
Colors that are not all over town, "Tank's G-d! "
This is an office that I did and it's window treatment and chair fabric are Bergamo Fabric.
I recovered the French Deco chair that I purchased in Paris in the same fabric. AND THEN....
came the carpet which was made to mock the fabric. There was another long carpet to coordinate running down a long hallway, the pattern of boxes and squares start to break apart in the carpet design as you walk down the hall.
Very cool, if I do say so myself.

This collectionis by DKieffer for Bergamo.

Happy Hunting....Fabric is what brought me into this business.

I still want to do my own line of fabrics, it's definitely on my 'TO DO' list.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
