SKATEMODERNE, A bespoke faux stingray/shark skin furniture line by NYC Interior Designer Michelle Bergeron.  This one-of-a-kind, hand-made furniture and wall paneling collection is focused on faux shagreen finishes and mid century silhouettes. Skatemoderne features a unique “COUTURE SHAGREEN” proprietary technology that produces stylish yet durable and functional pieces that can be made in any color, design or pattern applicable to residential, hospitality, and contract projects. After swimming with Sharks in Tahiti and a chance encounter with an albino stingray, Ms. Bergeron felt compelled to bring a product to market that would imitate the feel and luxury of “the real thing” without the ethical and moral consequences that go hand and hand with depleting our world’s oceans of the real thing.  Thus in 2010, Skatemoderne was born. Skatemoderne is available for purchase through interior designers, architects, and directly through SKATEMODERNE.
