Born in Shanghai and raised in San Francisco, Vivian Kimmelman opened Berkshire Home & Antiques in Great Barrington, MA, in 1999. A mecca for design-world denizens, the spacious shop offers a broad selection and a stylish, eclectic medley that spans styles and eras. On any given day the repertoire might include an original piece by Le Corbusier, a rare 17th-century Italian corner cupboard, boiserie from a French chateau, and a Roman limestone column, alongside a trove of French and Belgian antiques and garden accents.
