⁠About Phillip

When you grow up learning to touch the walls of every restaurant, hotel, or home you visit, it’s not until you are about 12 or 13 that you realize there is something a little kookie with this.” – Philip Bershad.  Philip grew up being surrounded by design, travel and inspiration through his family’s wallcovering business.  As a kid, he helped out in the sample room and literally climbed the corporate ladder working in the warehouse.   After going away to college, studying abroad, a career in corporate America and multiple travels around the world, Philip returned to his roots.  In 2001 he rejoined Phillip Jeffries declaring “I have grasscloth flowing in my blood.” As President, Philip is a driving force, along with his brother Jeffrey, in building Phillip Jeffries as the leader in natural, textured and specialty wallcoverings. He continues to be inspired by travel – as Philip has opened distribution in over 20 countries and traveled to 5 continents. Philip currently resides in Northern New Jersey with his wife and two children (both kids have wallcoverings named after them of course.)
