KERRY BEGRAND-FAST RENAISSANCE MAN Not too far from the action and always ready to jump in is Kerry. A self-proclaimed furniture junkie and a car enthusiast whose knowledge of mid century modern architecture and furniture is as keen as his encylopedic recall of vintage Jaguar E Types and Vespas. In his view as a former hairdresser, he sees similarities between automotive, fashion, hair, and furniture design worlds and loves when he can see one riffing off another. Being a modernista has also led him to being a DIRTT bag and enthusiastic supporter. Behind the scenes and ahead of the curve.
