Bradley Thiergartner Interiors

Thanks to Amanda Nisbet, my husband and I were introduced to the delightful and talented Benjamin Bradley last April. At the time I was unfamiliar with Benjamin’s work or that of his business partner David Thiergartner. After getting to know Benjamin, his work and design philosophy, I knew that I had to meet David. After a recent dinner with David and Benjamin in New York, David proved equally charming, possessing talent in spades.

David and Benjamin first met in the early 1990's at ABC Carpet & Home. Realizing they shared many of the same goals and design principals, the two founded their New York City firm, Bradley Thiergartner Interiors.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, David was educated at San Diego State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Benjamin attended Purdue University in Indiana and graduated with honors from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

Drawing on their distinctive and complementary skills, the duo creates well-edited interiors that are both tailored and traditional. "One of Ben’s many tremendous talents is to sketch or draw the most important details of a room," says David. “And, David's capacity to see the big picture and to imagine the possibilities, has always inspired me," Benjamin adds. If the hallmark of a great partnership is achieving together what cannot be achieved separately, David and Benjamin are a textbook definition. Of course, these images of their work speaks volumes.

Ronda,

I've been a fan of their work for ages - and especially loved seeing the article on Benjamin's home in NYSD during the holidays.

Cheers,

David and Benjamin are a great example of how 1 + 1 = much, much more. They often stop by to see our booth at the NYIGF and their visit always make our day. Thanks for the great post.
