Home Accessories Designer Mary Jane McCarty Debuts Two New Limited Edition Spring Collections for Bergdorf Goodman Home

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - In collaboration with the eponymous luxury retailer, Bergdorf Goodman, designer Mary Jane McCarty debuts two limited edition, couture quality spring pillow and table linen collections as part of the store's exclusive new installations for home. For the Big Sur installation in the Zen-like loft room on the 7th floor, McCarty designed pillows in crisp white linen, hand pleated to resemble origami. The pieces are embellished with hand-made tassels and toggle closures made of driftwood and freshwater pearls, attached with dark brown leather.

Other vendors in the installation include furniture designer Daniel Oates, and Concha Bay. Dinnerware is by Bernardaud, glassware by Deborah Ehrlich, and artwork Aswoon by Susan Woods Studio. The Big Sur installation runs through June.

In the hallway, next to the loft space is Peony Hall, a taste of spring replete with hand-painted full-blown peonies adorning the walls. Tables are dressed with linens McCarty designed using Designer Guild fabrics that feature splashy painted flowers in white, pink and green. Pillows, also in Designer Guild fabrics, combine floral fronts and bold, striped linen backs.

The vibrant room, which celebrates the season, includes furniture by O'Brien Ironworks, Richard Ginori dinnerware and William Yeoward glassware. The Peony Hall installation runs through April.
