Last weekend Moya Living had the pleasure of showcasing our work at the West Edge Design Fair in Santa Monica, California. Not only were we able to showcase our own pieces, but we were also surrounded by an incredible group of designers ranging in all styles. The inspiration was endless.
Below we highlighted a few of our favorite designers and their work.
Southern California designers working together to make hand blown glass vessels and lighting fixtures since 1999. Some of the most beautiful detail and imaginative work we’ve ever seen in this space, the LED sconces especially.
Another incredible partnership in glass and stone, Thor and Jennifer combine their background in performance and conceptual art to bring these mural installments to life. Working with a variety of stone styles and silver, these installments evoke a strong sense of fluidity in their designs, making the walls in the room feel like their moving.
This work was one of the first to catch out eye. Their detailed work in powder coated steel and natural woods had us totally captivated. Specifically the Lloyd Drinks Cabinet made from walnut and powder coated steel. According to the brothers, the Lloyd collection “incorporates clean lines and thoughtful proportions akin to the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.”
One of Moya’s all-time favorites, this company creates beautiful rope furniture for the outdoors.
Building on the basis of bringing people together, these designs make simplicity look anything but. The beautiful genesis table shown at the event was warm and inviting, while also showing incredible high-quality, linear design built with sturdy materials. A table perfect for what they promote; to Gather.
Perhaps one of the more unconventional companies, Green River Stone company works with stone sediments as old as 50 million years from their own land in Wyoming. Bringing a new meaning to the word “timeless”, artisans and geologists co-exist to bring a piece of history into your home. The long table was absolutely mesmerizing with the original fossilized murals, and we imagined these stone pieces beautifully above any outdoor gathering space.
Newell Design featured one of my personal favorite pieces from the show. Self-described as modern couture furniture, this studio creates pieces that are both mid-century and elegant. The light, white finishes against the wood and steel materials gave a contrast that caught the eye as soon as it was passed.
