Meet Daniel Romanoff: Who’s On The L.A. Designer’s Radar, Plus His Ode To The Local Creative Scene



Interior designer Daniel Romanoff, known for his tailored aesthetic, has joined Harrison Design’s Los Angeles office as its new director of interiors. “It’s been such a surprising turn of events—it seemed meant to be,” he says. “I love working in a variety of styles, but it’s important to me that my designs always remain balanced, classic and tailored. I’m thrilled to be bringing my skill set to the firm.” Luxe caught up with Romanoff to get his take on work and play in SoCal.

What are you working on at the moment? Two ground-up projects in Los Angeles as well as three gut renovations of apartments. I need to be busy, so it’s been great to hit the ground running. 

Share the best thing about L.A.’s design scene. Southern California has this amazingly chic, quiet and casual vibe. In terms of product, so much here feels understated and elegant. I also appreciate the camaraderie; there’s a genuine community here. 

Who’s on your radar? I fell in love with the work of ceramicist Ryan Mennealy when I stumbled upon his creations at Harbinger. His lamps are fantastic! I also love everything at Formations and visiting Galerie Half. Quintus is another place with exciting pieces and finishes. 

How do you enjoy your downtime? I live in L.A. during the work week, but I feel most at home in Palm Springs. I escape there on weekends with my husband, and we savor time spent with family and friends, along with a never-ending list of home projects.
