This past week I attended an event at Twentieth here in Los Angeles. It was for the release of the six meter Surface Table by Established & Sons, a UK based furniture company. I hadn’t been to the showroom in quite some time and so it was fun to have a look around - so many interesting and inspiring pieces! (We got a little exclusive back room tour too, shhhh don’t tell!)
A teak console stained in smoky black by designer Videre Licet.
Large pendants hang over this funky sofa in the window display at Twentieth.
A large brass screen floats across the showroom floor.
This sparkly chandelier is stunning in person.
A cool chair flanked by pedestal tables.
By the same designer of the console above, Smoked Ramiform is sculpted from a massive piece of teak.
Stunning hanging chandeliers.
Well, I learned the top of these tables are made from the skin of manta rays.
Another sculptural piece from the same designer as the console and chair, again made from teak and stained black. A great conversational centerpiece.
The other evening I was out walking in my neighborhood while on the way to a design event, on nearby Beverly Boulevard. Along the way I stopped to photograph some of the amazing beautiful old buildings in the La Brea and Beverly Boulevard neighborhood of Los Angeles. This particular street is lined with an eclectic mix of quitenessetial old LA style. Here’s a little photographic tour...
Lush landscape covers the facade of a building presumably from the 1940’s era.
A building I assume was built around the 1930’s or 40’s.
The details of this building feels so European.
An early Spanish style building.
Another Spanish style with intricate tile detail.
Another building I believe from the 1940’s.
Another Spanish style.
A grouping of Normandy style buildings.
Streamline Moderne right on the same street!
I am super excited to be heading to Las Vegas next month for KBIS, as a part of the Designhounds group with Modenus. CaesarStone is one of our participating sponsors and I’ve long used the quartz countertop surfaces for many of my interior design projects. One of their latest products is a concrete look, which I happened to learn about a year ago while talking to one of the reps at a design event in Los Angeles. I haven’t yet used this latest collection in a project but it’s been on my radar and I hope to soon! Check out some of these great colors for a concrete look!
See you soon, KBIS!
