FEATURED POST:
Eileen Gray’s E-1027 Villa and Side Table

“To create, one must first question everything” Eileen Gray

Not long ago, we had the privilege of staying at a gorgeous private residence in the town of Roquebrune visited by the likes of Princess Grace and Audrey Hepburn back in the day. A visit to the beach below is where we came across what we knew in our bones to be a significant architectural modern home. 

You’ll be more familiar with the table that was created to go into the house. You know the one: circular glass top with a chrome frame. It’s quite an accomplishment that this iconic design is hugely popular a century later. Eileen Gray created the design for this table in the 1920’s for the very home we saw perched above the Mediterranean Sea. Known as E-1027, she designed the home for herself to live in. The house still stands today. It is currently owned by a national preservation association and is available for guided tours.

Eileen Gray designed a series of furniture prototypes for the house, among them the small side table which became Gray’s most famous furniture design. She is said to have designed this table for her sister Thora to allow her to have breakfast in bed when visiting.

Wyman Bar at the Bradbury Building in Downtown LA

Our young(ish) minds were awestruck when first visiting the Bradbury building downtown. Built in 1893, the fairly non-descript exterior gives way to a steam punk dreamscape of futuristic open bird cage elevators, wrought iron grillwork and an awe inspiring glass ceiling. And, yes, of course, it was featured in Bladerunner. Now, however, the private club, Neuehouse, has commission The Design Agency to create a 21st Century homage in the form of the Wyman Bar located inside the building. For a limited time, it seems like non members can partake in some 19th Century style revelry.

Napa and Wellness Retreat? Don’t mind if we do…



When we just need a break and want to do it in style,
it’s never a bad idea to hit a wellness retreat in Napa.


Whether kickin’ it old school with a mid mod vibe at
Dr Wilkenson’s Backyard Resort & Mineral Springs..



… or we want to be pampered
at the height of luxury in
a resort like Auberge Du Soleil



Our goal is to be

surrounded by

well thought out design.
