Borrowing from various cultural influences from his childhood (residing in such varied places as France, (a stone throw from the palace at Versailles), USA, Mexico and Turkey), Erik Bernard has built his works on the interbreeding and mixture of genders from artdeco to the neoclassical.
Strengthened by his experience as a furniture designer and maker of spectacular bespoke furnishings, he has designed interiors for the likes of the Sultan of Brunei, Arabian sheikhs, Japanese and Russian tycoons. Projects have ranged from boutique hotels in Japan, Finland and Azerbaycan , to an art gallery in Trump tower for the biggest private collector of Renoir paintings , a chateau ( turned golf club house ) near Fontainebleau, France; and many other projects. More recently his work has shifted to Eastern Europe and Asia, primarily Russia , Ukraine , and Kazakhstan.

His design philosophy is guided by a relentless quest for attention to detail, always expected by his sophisticated clientele. And of course by the three guiding principles of a successful interior design project: function, mood, and harmony.
