Los Angeles, CA

Why use a designer?

To have access to unknown resources, to elevate one’s taste, and to be inspired.

You are best known for:

Sourcing local artisans and great antiques. Americana styles and midcentury pieces the most.

Your style in 3 words:

Whimsical, Vintage, Eclectic.


If you were a piece of furniture what would you be and why?

A beat-up leather club chair because I look better as I age, and I love fires and throw blankets.

What is your number one design tip?

Layer and lacquer.
