BI Signature Collection – Brass Collection

Brass has always been a key material at Birgit Israel since the first pieces were introduced into the BI Signature Collection. The Brass Collection is now renowned for classic pieces, which ranges from lighting to dining tables. There are three finishes available: Polished Brass, Bronze and Antique Brass. The variety with the finishes gives you the opportunity to create different depths and textures to add to your interior and are often mixed together.

 

The most renowned pieces are the Pebbles – the elegant lines and shape create the ideal side table. Either on their own or in a cluster, they are iconic pieces. There are four different sizes available, Dia40 x H40 cm, Dia40 x H50 cm, Dia60 x H40 cm and Dia90 x H36 cm. Mixing the heights, sizes and finishes look beautiful together and is how Birgit loves to style these pieces. The largest size of the Pebbles is designed to be used as a coffee table, but the pieces can be made to bespoke sizes to meet your requirements. All sizes are available in all three finishes.

The Xavier Bronze Desk is truly one of a kind and is definitely a show stopping piece in any interior. The depth of the bronze adds another dimension and compliments the design of the desk. The piece is also versatile, described as a desk, but can also be used as a console table or dressing table.

One of the newest pieces to be added to the BI Signature Collection, is the James Trim. This piece incorporates a delicate brass trim to add extra detailing. The chest of drawers is available in our standard finishes (White RAL 9001, Black RAL 9004 or Taupe RAL 1019), which means there is a number of different variations available. We are happy to work with bespoke RAL colour variations to help create an exclusive piece that compliments your scheme.

Our Aram Side Table has been reintroduced to the BI Signature Collection this year. The side table has been a design classic within our collection, but this year we decided to also introduce a new colour way to keep the piece current. The modern combination of white and black satin lacquer enhances the original design and works well with the shape of the piece. The original design is our standard Black (RAL 9004) satin lacquer with polished brass trim in the centre. The brass is used to lift the design of the tapered side table, where your eye is drawn to the middle where the shapes meet.

All of these pieces are available for bespoke services and hand made to fit your interiors. Please email us with your desired requirements for any bespoke pieces on info@birgitisrael.com.

Showroom Collections

Alongside our BI Signature Collection we are proud to introduce the Showroom Collection, where you will find a number of different companies which hold similar values as Birgit Israel. The selection of products vary from wool cushions, faux fur throws to candles. Each company is carefully selected by Birgit and we thrive to develop these special relationships to provide the highest quality of products.

Thomas Albrecht is considered to be the architect of fur, and Birgit Israel is proud to be the UK agent for them. He is renowned for being a luxury producer of interior products finished in fur. Thomas Albrecht was awarded with six gold medals for his excellence in fur creations, with which he set new international standards. Every single piece is handcrafted and is therefore unique.Fascinated by the challenge of developing an old craft style-defining, Thomas and his creative team deliberately refrain from technical machinery. Instead, they prefer to refine traditional techniques and add innovation to the production process. All piece are hand produced in Germany.

The Thomas Albrecht collection is still expanding and we have a large section of fur and faux fur samples on display in the showroom. One of our most popular pieces from our BI Signature Collection has incorporated the Merino Wool from Thomas Albrecht. This piece is our headboard which is also hand finished and the wings are upholstered in Scottish wool to compliment the Merino Wool.

Another company chosen by Birgit is Maison de Vacances, a French company which creates beautiful home accessories. Born right in the heart of Paris in the Palais Royal gardens, Maison de Vacances was founded in 1995 by Fouks and Nicolas Mauriac. Today, Maison de Vacances offer a large collection of  cushions, sheepskins, bedlinen and tablecloths which will transform your interiors. The brand truly lives up to its name, holiday home in English, creating a calm and relaxing environment.

Their cushion collection is some of our favourite pieces and we currently have a large collection of cushions on display in our showroom. The quality of the fabric has proven so popular, that we have now introduced their fabrics by the metre. The beautiful fabric ranges from a luxurious velvet to fresh linens. A wide variety of colours are available, these variations and textures add an extra touch of style to your interior.

We have a number of pieces in stock which can be delivered in time for Christmas.

BI Signature Collection – Rug Collection

Birgit made the decision to add rugs to her BI Signature Collection to incorporate her iconic designs such as the Diamond pattern. Since then we continue to create and add new designs to our collection. They are now signature pieces not only in Birgit’s Interior Design projects, but also favourites with a number of Interior Designers worldwide. Each individual rug is handmade to fit your bespoke requirements, which gives you freedom to create a truly unique piece.

 

The Diamond Rug includes Birgit’s signature pattern, which has been used as a continuous inspiration and featured in numerous pieces throughout the years. This pattern is inspired by Birgit’s love of Art Deco pieces. The warm tones with the simple black lines creates a stunning rug which adds texture and shape to any space.

Another favourite design is the Block Rug, this piece also uses simple lines and blocks of rich colour that complement each other. The inspiration for this piece was taken from a number of Contemporary Art pieces that Birgit has collected over the years.

One of the newest rugs to be added to our collection was the Brush Stroke Rug. This piece is hand knotted with high quality wool from New Zealand, which makes the structure of the rug work very well with the design. The simple brush stroke pattern adds a modern element and the colours create a depth which is highlighted by the quality of the wool.

Structure Rug was also added to our collection this year. This hand knotted viscose rug features a striking geometric design. The use of muted greys compliments the geometric shapes to create character. By using viscose with this design, the rug changes with different light and highlights the beautiful symmetry of the design.

 

All rugs are handmade and can be made with different qualities of either silk, wool or viscose. This choice can really change the feel of the rug and creates a luxury finish to fit your requirements. We continue to develop this collection to inspire and complete your eclectic interiors.

BI Signature Collection – Desks and Consoles

Since first launching the BI Signature Collection, some of the key pieces in the collection are our Desks and Consoles. Iconic pieces such as the Zeta Desk, Xavier Desk and Simon Desk have played an important role in creating Birgit’s signature style which she is known for.

Birgit’s love of mixing old and new is apparent in the designs of our desks and consoles. By using rich materials such as brass and simple lines, these pieces are now very distinguishable as being part of the BI Signature Collection. The Zeta Desk is a perfect example, the strong lines and the use of brass makes this piece seamless. All of these factors play a part in the reason why this piece is now classic design and loved by many Interior Designers.

Another iconic design is the Walter Table, the finish for this piece is hand-applied to achieve the natural oxidisation signs which also creates a painted quality patina. The depth created by the oxidisation is individual to each piece meaning that each table is unique.  All pieces are handcrafted in Germany, where a great deal of care and attention to detail is put into every order. As one of our original Birgit Israel designs, the Walter Table still remains classic to this day.

We currently have a Xavier Brass Desk in bronzed finish on display in our showroom, this piece is beautifully finished. The depth of the bronzed finish and the simplicity of the design create a truly elegant piece. Again another seamless design, with pull–to-open drawers means there are no another details to distract you from the depth of the finish. This piece can be versatile with a number of other pieces being used as a desk, but also as a dressing table.

The Paula Collection is now established as one of our most loved collections. The Paula Console can also be used as a dressing table as well as a console. The wood lined drawers have wicker and brass detailing, the pieces are also available in white (RAL 9001), black (9004) or natural ash finish. With the choice of standard finishes this piece can adapt and transform your space.

All of these pieces are available for bespoke services and hand made to fit your interiors. Please email us with your desired requirements for any bespoke pieces on info@birgitisrael.com.
