Introducing Tailor-Made – the first in a new series of videos produced by Samuel & Sons taking you behind the scenes in some of the industry’s top trade workrooms. Through the Tailor-Made series, you’ll discover inspiring trim applications while learning construction and sewing techniques from the experts. We begin with Grant Trick of Birmingham, Alabama, who shares his approach to seamlessly joining a twist cord.
Samuel & Sons is represented by Thomas Lavin at Laguna Design Center.
The collection is an homage to mythical places, fairy-tale dream worlds and the magic of the future. While taking cues from cabinets of curiosity we also pay tribute to traditional craftsmanship. However, this collection is also inspired by the new design options made possible by technical innovation.
Art and design are often treated as separate worlds, but those boundaries are rapidly dissolving. How exactly does art interact with design? Does one influence the other? And how does art collecting mesh with interior design? Join art dealer Edward Cella, Zinc Textile designer Justin Marr, and showroom owner Thomas Lavin to explore what you need to know about the intersection of art and design today. Moderated by DesignLA editor-in-chief Michael Wollaeger.
