Embracing the Creative Spirit of Los Angeles

There is a lot to love about Los Angeles. The weather, for one. The surf, for another. Our favorite part may be the history of design innovation and personal possibility. L.A. is the type of place where the American Dream feels like more than a dream. It’s a melting pot of people, cultures and ideas, where opportunity lies around every corner and style is as subjective as you like.

Growing up in L.A., both Khai and I found ourselves immersed in a culture of design, art, and innovation at a young age. We were encouraged to explore our personal style and take risks with new ideas. We weren’t alone. Richard Neutra, famed California-based architect, described LA as attracting “people who were more ‘mentally footloose’ than those elsewhere.” Our peers, parents, and role models were all willing to express their taste in bright, bold ways. Talk about a perfect petri dish for the creative spirit.

I’m incredibly lucky to be designing and producing luxury furniture in this mecca of design. L.A. is a driving influence for me. The city itself, the lifestyle, and the natural beauty of the region all inspire my designs.

Muse Bed

Styles like Muse and Hugo speak to the earthy groundedness found in many California homes. Soft lines, low profiles, and comfort cushioning blend into the surroundings for a cozy yet contemporary look.

Laurent sofa

Hollywood regency comes to life in our Cielo and Laurent seating pieces. Bold tufts and stitching create dramatic silhouettes that would feel right at home in any Dorothy Draper or David Hicks inspired interior.

Matheo sofa white

L.A. being a driving force behind mid-century modern design in America, the Boxx sofa recalls the defined outlines of that era. Matheo finds its roots in Nordic design, translated for the California home or office.

This beautiful transformation of an outdated Tuscan home to a sophisticated luxe modern design actually happened during COVID! The designer Marilyn @interior_designer_md incorporated new architectural details while keeping some of the existing details to create a perfect balance of old and new. This was Marilyn’s fourth project with her very very trusting and awesome clients❤️. Click the link to see more of this amazing house and Marilyn’s work!

EMELIE COUNTER STOOLS

Where modern design meets opulence – the two design aesthetics go hand-in-hand in this gorgeous modern penthouse! ⁠Our EMELIE CHAIRS face the stunning hand-laid white and black marble tile, with brass detailing on the main wall of the kitchen. You can see how the interior designer used the sculptural shape of our EMELIE CHAIRS to highlight a two-toned fabric application. Choosing materials like black, brass and white is a color palette that just elevates all other décor elements around.

This home was featured on  Modern Luxury’s Instagram account!  ⁠

BELL BOTTOM CHAIR

Hands down, it’s the low and exaggerated angle of the shot capturing the BELL BOTTOM CHAIR’S sexy legs and rounded back. It’s also the killer fabric on the frame that made this post so popular.  Bell Bottom is the perfect dining chair because of its slanted arms, it can nestle under a standard dining table, or an accent chair in the bedroom or office.  Chairs that have rounded backs, sculptural features and a smaller footprint like the Bell Bottom work perfectly in any room you want to add super style to.

This gorgeous home was featured in ELLE DECOR MAGAZINE this last March. Interior design and post was by interior designer Kesha Franklin of @haldeninteriors here’s what she wrote about the room “I’m so excited to finally share that one of my projects for a very special client is in this month’s issue!! My client unexpectedly experienced the loss of her dear husband and I had the honor of restoring some sunshine into her life with a design that evokes happiness, memories of the love they shared and inspiration for more special moments to come!!” 

Everyone loved this one for the pop of yellow on the ceiling, the happy bubbly chandelier and our gorgeous, crisp and fresh EMELIE DINING CHAIRS in white leather.

Another gorgeous interior by interior designer Kesha Franklin of @haldeninteriors! It’s her choice of purple velvet paired with the art that brings out the purple and mauve hues. Insta tip: the best bed posts are those that are vignetted like this one… close up, you see the side table, art, a little styling with flowers / ceramics, lighting or sconces, a hint of the bedding and voila, you have the perfectly styled bedroom post! Beautiful work Kesha (as always)!
