Living Spaces: Why did you decide to partner with Living Spaces to launch furniture, accessory, and mattress collections?
Drew and Jonathan: Living Spaces is a leader in home furnishings, because they understand how to design for the whole home. Just like us, they bring people together through efficient and accessible design that makes room for everyone. That matters to us and the families we serve.
LS: What were your major sources of inspiration when designing your collections?
D & J: We love finding inspiration the minute we step outside. In Southern California, there’s no shortage of visually stunning surroundings: from the mountains to the beach, to the architecture that can get overlooked if you’re in the car all the time. We like to get out, walk around and take in the scenery. We look for light, angles and colors that make us feel a special combination of relaxed and energized, and then we come back and try to recapture that feeling in our designs.
LS: Can you highlight a few pieces that are particularly special to you and explain why?
D & J: We’re doing a new sectional, which is exciting and rewarding for us. Coming from a family of three boys, we were fighting over space on the sofa regularly. Our Culver sectional has plenty of room for everyone, and it makes good use of that space with a low profile that’s comfortable and fits into any design.
LS: How do you work together to design a collection?
LS: What makes these collections different from other home furnishing offerings in the market?
LS: What did you set out to accomplish when you designed these collections?
LS: What current trends do you both find yourselves gravitating to?
D & J: We’re bringing back Art Deco silhouettes and metallics in a way that’s exciting and modern. Those designs allow us to play with contrast and bold colors more than we ever have before. We’re very into rich, deep colors in accent pieces that can stand out amid larger neutrals.
LS: What is your favorite aspect of designing a collection?
D & J: The act of creating something new is invigorating. Whether we’re starting our company or a new television series, there’s nothing that beats the feeling of a blank canvas: that anything is possible, and that the only boundaries are the ones you make for yourself.
LS: Who are your personal design heroes?
LS: What makes a perfect design?
D & J: The perfect design works for the person who’s using it: it’s versatile and sustainable, it can be easily moved and rearranged, and it provides them as much pleasure and comfort as it did the first time they used it.
