Ever since we discovered him last summer, Kirill Bergart has become one of our favorite up-and-coming designers. His gift is in mining the best of contemporary and vintage midcentury modern design for his retail outfit, County Ltd.—which he started with Joe Lorens, Phillip Proyce, and Taylor Caruso—as well as in creating his owns designs, again with partner Joe Lorens, for Counter-Space.
Kirill’s penchant for midcentury style is on display in his own home, located in the historic neighborhood of Highland Park, in Northeast Los Angeles. Indeed, the Ukrainian-born designer’s 850-square-foot apartment, which he shares with his wife, Alysha, reads like a who’s who of international midcentury design. Kirill notes, “My style is a blend of both Japanese simplicity and neutral environments, and European [French and Italian mainly] modernism.”
