When friends commissioned Brett Beldock to design their townhouse, what started as a career in fashion swiftly transformed into a passion for interior decorating and furniture design—and her eponymous company, Brett Design, was born. New York-based Beldock just launched her 13th collection with CB2, complete with beds, desks, chairs, rugs and tables in soothing natural materials like oak, leather, viscose and shearling.
Her personal favorite from the new collection? The Avalon Bar. “It’s such a great staple,” says Beldock. “It references the ’70s, but with the addition of brass and rattan it has a fresh look.”
Drawing inspiration from that era of fashion designers, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin and Courrèges, as well as the fabrics of Anni Albers and Bauhaus designers, Beldock also specializes in wallpaper with a line 3,000 styles strong. Her new watercolor prints awash with florals and geometric forms were designed in part to ease pandemic isolation and bring springtime flowers and colors inside.
“I love an element of surprise,” the designer says. “That’s always top of mind when I’m dreaming up new designs.”
