VIP cocktail party at Nebraska Furniture Mart with Nate Berkus

Nat Berkus, Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas

It’s not every day that one of the most successful interior designers in the world makes a visit to North Texas; such was the case recently when Nat Berkus visited Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas.

Nat Berkus, Nebraska Furniture Mart of TexasMr. Berkus is the LG Studio Advisor of LG Studio’s latest line of appliances; this new collection was unveiled at our very own Nebraska Furniture Mart.

Nate Berkus is a celebrity with great charm; although it seemed that a monsoon was blowing across the plain as he arrived, Nate remained cool and collected. When I remarked to him that the LG stovetop and oven, and the refrigerator seem very much like Wolf or Viking appliances but on a smaller scale, he explained that his thinking was to design pieces that had a “commercial” look to them but that were more versatile and therefore, the dimensions were smaller. I also inquired whether Nate believed that stainless steel is a fad for a decade or a permanent trend in our kitchens. He responded that stainless steel is here to stay, due in part to its lean look and clean line. He also expressed a desire to perhaps work with black matte appliances with gold accouterments in the future.

Nebraska Furniture Mart’s management proved to be great hosts, with knowledgeable conversation and great food and drinks. Hmm, I think I need a new refrigerator and I now I know where to go!
