One of a Kind Decor on Bergdorf's 7th floor


Shiny Objects Made to be Grabbed Before They're Gone

Kelly Wearstler’s new 325-square-foot space on Bergdorf Goodman’s seventh floor holds just 75 items — “pretty things that are pretty unusual,” Ms. Wearstler, the Los Angeles-based designer, said — each made in very limited (5- or 10-piece) quantities exclusively for Bergdorf Goodman. And when they’re gone, they’re gone, she said. It’s a very fashion-seasonal attitude from a very fashionable designer, best known for decorating the Viceroy hotel in Santa Monica and the Tides in South Beach.

At Bergdorf Goodman, Ms. Wearstler, above, displays her first housewares collection in rows of silver-leafed alcoves. Items include, top from left, a brass Golden Egg ($1,095); Gold Palms, made of brass ($1,495 for a pair); and a 12-inch chrome Kaleidoscope ($1,995). The domed chair behind her, a personal alcove in gray leather, is $18,000. Ms. Wearstler’s marble table, available by special order only, sells for $40,000. Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Avenue (58th Street), (800) 558-1855.
