Bergamot Studio closes shop in Burton

After 17 months of curating fine art collections and home furnishings, Bergamot Studio owner Kassana Holden is moving on to a new project, closing her gallery and showroom in the historic Burton Masonic Lodge.

Holden will continue to use the business name Bergamot Studio while doing freelance design work for small companies and lifestyle brands. She will also continue to work on residential and commercial custom design projects.

Bergamot Studio creates custom light fixtures, upholstery fabric and wallpaper using a unique combination of traditional textiles with photographic images. Prior to starting her business on Vashon, Holden held the position of design director for Eddie Bauer Home from 2000 to 2010.

Holden said closing her studio was simply the right move at the right time for her.

“I will miss ... the relationships with the people of Vashon — the artists, customers and other business owners,” she said. “I’ve made so many close friends here. And, it’s been a professional honor to collaborate with such a fantastically talented cadre of people.”

Bergamot will hold a three-day closing sale on the last weekend of April.
