Berbere is such an incredibly massive space we decided to break it up into two posts. Part II takes you outside the warehouse, through the lower floor and offers a glimpse into The Plant Daddies in house residency. Outside you will find a variety of oversized pots, planters, vessels, troughs and doors. The lower floor has a curated collection of smaller home decor items and large pieces of furniture sourced from all around the globe.
