New Launches From 3 CA Designers Draw Inspiration From L.A. to London


Ryan saghian sensuale tile in Carnaby

Designer Ryan Saghian’s first tile collection, Sensuale, is inspired by London’s many boroughs.Logan Montgomery Textiles has partnered with artist Liesel Plambeck to create a new indoor-outdoor jacquard-woven palm-print fabric called Sabal. Plambeck, who has worked with Kelly Wearstler, Georg Jensen and Mehraban, developed the design as an oversize repeat that creates a strikingly artful effect on furnishings. It is available at Una Malan in West Hollywood.

Interior designer Kara Smith of KES Studio will launch her new rug collection, Dusk, at Marc Phillips this summer. The geometric abstractions play on perceptual phenomena theories (light, volume, scale) explored during Southern California’s Light and Space movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

For his first tile collection, called Sensuale, L.A. designer Ryan Saghian looked to London, finding inspiration in its many boroughs. The terrazzo tiles, designed to be mixed and matched, are named for famous London streets: Carnaby (shown below), Savile, Shaftesbury and Strand. The collection is available through his showroom and online.
