Bernabeifreeman is an industrial design studio created by Kelly Freeman and Rina Bernabei. Rina and Kelly design products that connect with people through references to traditional textiles and the handcrafted. From lighting to textile design, they aspire to create beautiful, sustainable, long-lasting designs that explore the significance of products in our lives.
Bernabeifreeman’s first rug collection references traditional textile crafts, tapping into the rich intersection of memory, domesticity, narrative and the feminine through handknotted rugs, elevating their work into the hearts of their audience as might a hand-crafted heirloom.
Bernabeifreeman’s second collection displays a highly sophisticated use of colour to achieve a European feel. The rugs work brilliantly in commercial environments, with quite minimal interiors, and yet they also exude a real warmth in residential settings. This bold collection resonates with contemporary clients and those who value the impact of colour in a room.
