The Windows of Legends
I returned last week from Los Angeles, where I attended Legends. To say that I had a good time is an understatement, as it took me days to recover from the non-stop socializing and inspiration-seeking that is Legends. But the post-event exhaustion was certainly worth it, as I had the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new acquaintances, such as Nicky Haslam, of whom I am in awe. It was also very gratifying to see how close-knit the Los Angeles design community is and how vibrant the La Cienega Design Quarter remains.
One of the highlights of this annual event are the windows of the La Cienega showrooms, which are thematically-decorated by prominent designers. This year's theme was "Muses", and each participating designer chose a muse who (or, in some cases, which) inspires them. Muses ranged from people (Charles de Beistegui and Slim Aarons) to places (Bali) and things, such as a blank slate.
For those of you who were unable to attend Legends, I want to show you just some of the windows that I saw during my stay in Los Angeles. Because of the sheer number of designer windows that were featured at Legends, I'm only featuring half of the windows, which I chose at random. But, please visit the Legends website to get the full run-down of windows. My photos don't do the windows justice, so thankfully, I am able to share Grey Crawford's photographs with you. And, if next year you have the opportunity to attend Legends, then I will likely see you there.
