Born in the Ukraine as Jakub Brojdo, but most notably known as the award winning Georges Briard, he was a true visionary in the world of home decor/entertaining and NO MCM home would dare be spared of his amazing designs.
His fearless use of bold patterns and bright colors, paired with his attention to detail, made his designs truly stand out in a unique way and subject for many collectors of Mid-Century decor.
He was not afraid to mix & match different patterns and colors to create visually striking looks, both contemporary and timeless and his designs often featured geometric shapes, clean lines, and whimsical illustrations giving them a very modern feel, perfect for creating a statement for any room or dinner party.
Kitsch with a kick!
Briard's designs were most popular during the 1950's-70's and included a wide range of products including glassware, serveware, and barware with a modern spin on kitsch including intricate details such as gold leaf accents which added a touch of luxury to his pieces.
These details made his designs spectacular for entertaining and hosting stylish happy hours.
One of the things that made Briard's designs so popular was their versatility. They were perfect for both formal and casual entertaining and could easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
