Modern and Young: A Furniture-Filled Living Room in Los Feliz

“We literally had no furniture so we were starting from scratch,” says actor Adam Campbell of the recently renovated Los Feliz abode he shares with wife and fellow actress Jayma Mays from our Furniture Issue. “We thought: Let’s give it a go ourselves, and if it looks disastrous then we’ll think about using an interior designer.” The young couple's living room is the best reflection of their burgeoning furniture collecting skills—a cool mix of high and low: vintage and contemporary furniture, design-shop purchases, and internet finds fill the space, such as a mid-century Danish sofa, square blocked rug by Scholten & Baijings for Hay, and a long wooden table. To the right, a Plugged Pendant lamp from Muuto hangs above a white legged Pure dining table from CB2, while tubular steel side chairs from Danish Modern L.A. and Verner Panton chairs found on, you guessed it, Craigslist, graciously await a fluttering of guests. As Mays says, “I feel that our furniture reflects the marriage of both old and new and hopefully does so with a bit of levity and color."

Q&A with La Cornue President Xavier Dupuy

Helming a classic, well-established company in the 21st century is tough enough work as it is without also having to deal with an intrinsic indebtedness to DNA. But, in the case of Xavier Dupuy, third generation President of La Cornue, the opportunity to bring his custom ranges to a more contemporary-leaning audience seems to have been somewhat of a no-brainer. In conjunction with French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, W. By La Cornue is a fearlessly modern project for the 105-year-old company—and their first new line in 30 years. We talked to Dupuy about bringing his ranges to U.S. markets, their rigorous production standards, and how to establish longevity with contemporary design.
