This week we are spotlighting the modern furniture designers and vintage retailers, Grant Fenning and Glenn Lawson. A popular destination with designers and architects, Lawson-Fenning showrooms are known for their eclectic mix of vintage modernist furniture and emerging contemporary West Coast designers. Their retro-inspired sensibility is balanced by a contemporary aesthetic.
“Our style has always been organic modern with traditional detailing. We are a squarely American company. And specifically, we really credit the history and aesthetic of Southern California as being a huge influence on us. We work with California woods – oak, walnut, redwood. We strive to make pieces that are more classic than trendy.”
The LF Collection of handmade furniture focuses on craft, versatility, and timelessness. Lawson-Fenning’s mid-century and vintage pieces are chosen with a curatorial eye that favors the best from Californian to European 20th century design. Combining the principles and craft of mid-century Californian and Scandinavian design with traditional details and modern styling, the pieces follow a line of thinking that furniture should be well-crafted, beautiful, and above all, useable in a variety of interior styles.
