Sebnem Berker and her sister Meltem Berker have always been inspired by their hometown of Istanbul, a vibrant multi-cultural metropolis split by the marvelous Bosphorus – the city literally straddles two continents.
The sisters started Simple Life Istanbul in 1998 to promote the elegant simplicity and impeccable quality of Turkish design. The city's energy drives Simple Life's creativity and design philosophy, so it’s really no surprise that they named their company after it.
"Simple Life's pieces are simple and elegant enough to be incorporated into many different styles of design,” says Sebnem. “We have a small tight-net group of friends in which everybody contributes their individual design.”
