Interior Designer Alphabet- A and B



A is for Acanthus- A stylized leaf pattern inspired by the acanthus plant and used as ornamentation on molding, furniture, and decorative objects.  Acanthus ornamentation gives it a classical look.



B is for Bergere.  The French Bergere chair is considered an upholstered armchair with closed, upholstered or caned sides.  The elegant scale and shape of a Bergere chair tends to fit in with just about any look depending on the fabric.  With a small check pattern, it can look country French.  With a silk brocade, it can fit right into renovated palace, and in a plain white…it goes contemporary.
