Signature: “I am a modernist, and my work is largely predicated on the use of major contemporary art. Although I have great respect for the past, I like my work to reflect our moment in time.” Bradfield also is instrumental in building exceptional collections of important antiques, and he has a particular fondness for the masters of the Art Deco movement. His work has become more and more reductive over the years, and nowadays its sense of luxury feels exquisitely distilled.
