Dwayne founded Dwayne Bergmann Interiors in 2013, based in South Florida. His design firm specializes in high-end residential, commercial and hospitality projects, from architecture and interiors to full-service design-build ventures, throughout the United States, Canada, South America and the Bahamas.  His projects have been featured in numerous publications, including Luxe Interiors + Design, East Coast Home + Design, and Gulfshore Life among others.

Bergmann’s strive for perfection was learned at an early age. He started riding horses when he was 2 years old and later competed at the highest level of equestrian sport, winning world and national titles. After earning his master’s degree in business, he became a senior executive at Home Depot and HD Supply, strengthening his innate, artistic talents with structural knowledge. His experience there adds to his versatility as a designer, enabling him to truly create, not curate, the lustrous spaces he designs.
