Bohomodern

Bohomodern was conceptualized in 2009 as Margarita Barry’s lifelong dream of launching her own lifestyle brand and creative vision combining her love of pattern, her passion for travel, and her pursuit of beauty in accessible, everyday objects. She custom designs colorful, whimsical products: posters, tableware, pillows, clothing, stationary, planters, and decor--many with themes local to Detroit. With the help of her seamstress mom, she launched the signature Bohomodern collection in 2011 at 71 POP inside of the 71 Garfield Artists Lofts building. Later that year Bohomodern launched its online store and holiday pop-up shop featuring collection originals, as well as an array of vintage, found, recycled and new homewares, clothing, accessories, gifts, and other objects for women, men, kids, and home.

Margarita's a lifelong Detroiter, artist, and multi-medium designer who spent the earlier half of her twenties dreaming up creative ideas for activating underused spaces with creative businesses and pop-up shops. She's always had a longing to use her background in design and passion for entrepreneurship to help others. It's why, since 2009, she's worked to inspire young people to live in Detroit and help shape their communities through entrepreneurship with her social enterprise IAmYoungDetroit.com. It’s also why, in 2010, Margarita launched a place-making design agency to help others young creatives plan and open their very own pop-ups.

In 2013 & 2014 Margarita took a short hiatus from Bohomodern to work on her latest creation, a now 2-year-old daughter, Posey. Earlier this year she went back to Bohomodern's roots, renting a studio space in the 71 Garfield Artists Loft building to work on a 2016 collection. The new collection will step outside of Bohomodern's usual fare and into total in-house product development and manufacturing, using new materials like metal and wood. Margarita's competing in Hatch for a shot at converting the existing studio into a retail store in 2016, featuring an expanded selection of outside label products to complement its in-house collections. The store's selection will include clothing, furniture, decor, and gifts for women, men, kids and home. The store will also introduce an expansion of the Bohomodern brand with Bohomini for kids and Bohomodern Studio's one-of-a-kind original art.

Bohomodern products are an expression of our customer’s appreciation for artfulness and good design. Through a permanent Bohomodern store, Margarita hopes to impart a sense of creativity, optimism and discovery to each customer. Bohomodern will be an escape from the everyday; a source of inspiration and delight, where innovative merchandising, customer centricity and a curated array of socially responsible, thoughtfully crafted products come together to create an unimagined experience. The goal is to not just be a store, but a colorful and quirky place that people will want to come in and touch: grownups will come in to dream, kids will come in to create, everyone will come in and be inspired (and make use of our free Wi-Fi). With a three-generation team (daughter, mom, and grandma) and your vote, Bohomodern will create an environment that is fun, forward-thinking, and family-friendly!
