We specialize in heirloom quality home furnishings, our own signature line of textiles, exclusive to Foundation as well as several offerings of home goods from various global artists and merchants and interior design service. All of the upholstered pieces and casegoods are made locally in Los Angeles, though Foundation has sourced its textiles and decorative objects from across the globe. We create clean, fresh designs for residential, hospitality and commercial spaces and can accommodate a budget and timeline for most projects. We have trade accounts with most furniture and fabric dealers throughout the country.
Every piece is designed or hand selected with the intent that design should start in the past and work its way into the present. Researching classic forms that have withstood changes in fashion is the starting point. Creating a modern approach to those forms is the first step. Marrying bench-made artisanal construction with modern materials comes next. Using quality hardwoods and natural materials, like cotton filling and organic muslin, for our upholstered goods is vital to furniture that stands the test of time. The result is a collection that is far reaching in influence, but retains an expert continuity that allows it to stand on its own.
