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.
