Celebration Mode: A Beautiful Night Co-Hosted with C Magazine

Whether it’s hosting events around town or in Milan, Italy­ (more on our 2019 Salone del Mobile program coming shortly), one of our greatest joys is building relationships with designers. A few weeks ago, we asked editor Andrea Stanford of C Magazine (and also of home décor company Society6) to curate a guest list of some of L.A.’s top young designers for a glamping-themed dinner generously hosted by Shannon Wollack at her home. It was a wonderful chance for us to get to know new people and for the designers to chat with their fellow creatives. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Andrea and Shannon for organizing such an inspiring evening, and to Annie Campbell for the delicious meal. We’d also like to thank everyone who joined us: Vanessa Alexander, Lauren Soloff, Betsy Burnham, Heidi Bonesteel and Michele Trout, Simone Harouche, Tamara Honey, Nina Freudenberger and Adam Hunter. We’re so impressed by everyone’s unique vision and talent that we’re weaving in images of their work with the party pictures below. If you don’t already know them, get clicking. These are some of the most exciting folks working in the field right now.
