Designer Wendy Haworth creates beautiful homes throughout Los Angeles (and beyond) but we’re especially partial to her restaurant designs (namely Gracias Madre and Felix Trattoria) simply because we get to experience them for ourselves. The designer, who was recently profiled by Luxe magazine, is currently at work on a number of residential projects as well as a new Westwood restaurant from vegetarian chef Dana Slatkin. With so much in the works, we were thrilled to see her at Salone del Mobile and have her join our events. “I loved getting a private tour of the bath show with Russ,” she told us. “We were able to get so much more information than had we gone alone.” Music to our ears as that’s exactly the experience we wanted to provide for our design community! “The dinner in Lake Como was really fun, and the tour of the Prada Foundation with drinks at Bar Luce was a highlight.” But what are her favorite local highlights? We asked.
Art & Culture
There are so many great places to get a culture fix. I love going to LACMA for art and lectures and to Hauser & Wirth. The Huntington Library and Descanso Gardens [the rose garden, above] are great for a weekend outing, and screenings at Hollywood Forever Cemetery are always fun.

I love the design sensibility of AD France [above] and Somewhere I Would Like to Live and then Patagonia to get a dose or nature and remember what’s important. I also love what they do as a company.
We're also sharing a few of Wendy's projects below, including Winsome, Café Gratitude in Newport Beach and a home in Beverly Hills. To see more of the designer's work, follow her on Instagram @wendy_haworth.
