Q&A with Nate Berkus

Learn more about Nate Berkus and his latest collection for The Shade Store.


My goal was to create a foundational collection that was both elevated and incredibly hard-working that would look good in any interior. It's a line designers and clients alike can reach for over and over again for a timeless, sophisticated look.


This collection is all about textural solids and patterns that bring effortless style to the home. With textiles rooted in fashion, from a luxe boucle to a menswear inspired tweed with classic linen and stripes in between, the line is a perfect blend of versatile and chic.

In creating his newest collection, Berkus focused on his personal design preferences and the materials that he seeks out for himself and his clients. With a focus on textural solids and subtle patterns, the assortment is influenced by his travels to Portugal and France, mixed with nods to men’s fashion—from a rich boucle and a menswear-inspired tweed, to classic linen and stripes. The color palette of luxe neutrals and warm tones, including bronze, deep charcoal, and dark green, creates a harmonious blend that easily allows for homeowners and designers to infuse their spaces with Berkus’s signature design ethos.

Lowell Tweed: "Reminiscent of menswear suiting, this rich wool blend is the definition of elevated, but warm and inviting at the same time."

Claude Stripe: "Casual elegance at it's very best; a luxe boucle stripe is paired with a linen-blend base for a look that's effortlessly stylish."

I'm really drawn to textural solids. Not only do I wear them, they the are also my go-to when designing for myself and for my clients. I really wanted the collection to reflect what I would reach for.


I wanted to include texture that could stand the test of time. From a tweed reminiscent of classic mens' suiting to a soft slubby linen with a stonewashed feel. You can never go wrong with a great ticking stripe.


I landed on colors that are versatile and that also feel sophisticated. The palette is a mix of luxe neutrals + rich, warm tones such as bronze, deep charcoal and dark green.

Can you describe the creative/design process in developing these materials working with The Shade Store?

The process was deeply collaborative. When sitting down with the team from TSS to discuss the new collection, I was adamant I wanted to design a collection I would personally want to live with. They understood the vision, and the team then jumped in to make it even more thoughtful, more stylish, and more versatile than I could've imagined. Their team sourced a wide array of textiles for review and color testing until we landed on the perfect mix. This collection is really a beautiful blend of what I bring to the table as a designer, and they bring to the table as innovators in this category.
