LOS ANGELES – A new six-piece capsule collection from California-based designer brand Lawson-Fenning pulls its design inspiration from the romance of cross-continental train travel.
The idea for the collection began during the lockdown in 2020 when Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning of Lawson-Fenning and Krista Schrock and David Dick, founders of DISC Interiors, talked about their travel dreams.
With this new collection, curved and over-scaled upholstery is accentuated with exposed carved oak detailing, which resembles railroad ties, and the graceful architecture of the arch bridges. The supports of suspension and arch bridges inspired both the new Newton Dining Table and the Monterey Bed.
The team designed Clyde Nightstand with dreams of adventure, of having a ‘travel trunk’ onboard for an overnight destination. The Skye Dining Chair, Seymour Chaise and the Lorca Lounge Chair are also noted for their luxurious comfort, generous scale and tailored upholstery details.
The team of four have known each other for 15 years from the early days of Lawson-Fenning. Over the years, they’ve traveled to design fairs together and share a passion for eclectic and artistic interiors and furniture.
Lawson-Fenning is also offering a new Danny Kaplan exclusive collection of seating, tables and Talis Cube lamps offered in a variety of finishes.
Each lamp is inspired by aspects of the natural world and architecture and blends the organic with the structural. The collection has strong roots in mid-century art and brutalist architecture, according to Kaplan. The slab-built pieces are altered using different techniques which represent the studio’s developing aesthetic.
In addition to the lamps, the studio is also presenting a selection of new ceramic furniture which continues to test the limitation of ceramics and challenges the viewer’s perception of the material, according to Lawson and Fenning.
“The free form slab pieces push the scale and traditional function of clay,” said Lawson. “Each piece is made to order and customizable.”
