Asking Nate Berkus to come up with a list of his favorite design items is like gifting yourself the most stylish shopping list of all time. So it’s no surprise that the designer, who recently launched a 50-piece furniture collection for Living Spaces with his husband, Jeremiah Brent, named a female-owned paint company that has tons of wall-ready shades and a rug brand that he’s constantly sourcing for his clients. Here are a few of his current faves. 

A Hit of Citrus

Lemonade, Clare ($54)

A female-founded paint company—need I say more? Take a glance at Nicole Gibbons’s Instagram account and you’ll have inspiration for days.

Catch of the Day

Trout Platter, Rebekah Miles ($435)

I use these whimsical plates to set the table when we’re hosting special occasions—they were a birthday gift from Jeremiah.


By the Sea

Nate Berkus x The Shade Store, The Shade Store (Price upon request)

I loved working on this Mediterranean-inspired collection. You can layer the shades seamlessly with what you already have.

Do Look Down

Diamond Mohair Rug, Ennui (Price upon request)

My firm has been sourcing Ennui’s artisan-made mohair rugs for more than 20 years. They’re definitely worth the splurge.

Made With Love

Rennes Chair, Living Spaces ($849)

Between the fabric and the Art Deco shape, our chair is chic and cozy at the same time—it feels like a hug.
