It’s been said that the color yellow is known to be overstimulating especially when used as an accent for the walls or wallpaper. However, today’s piece is going to show you how you can use this eccentric color in tasteful ways that create interest. In the above living room setting ‘Gran Sol’ wallpaper by Gaston y Daniela uses predominantly soft yellow motifs mixed amidst black and white to create a minimal design that draws your eyes in but doesn’t feel obnoxious. The colors pair well with the mostly white and gray furniture, letting the wallpaper be a statement.
This cozy little nook uses a similar technique to the previous living room. With a paper-backed fabric wall of ‘Morley’ by Gaston y Daniela, the muted yellow gold jewel tone in the pattern accentuates the cushions and prevents the space from feeling dull even though the majority of the palette is grey and white.
For our third example, we take this dining room that radiates bright yellow sunshine energy. Schumacher wallpaper‘s ‘Zanzibar Trellis’ in canary is a true golden yellow. Using primary colored seating to offset and compliment the walls, this setting has a very cheery and happy vibe. The geometric pattern in the trellis and the white background help offset all the yellow. Sometimes it’s ok to break all the rules to create a stand-out moment. We hope these ideas help inspire your own design projects, in the mean time you can also check out our $1000 Kravet Giveaway. Until next time!

In the Summer heat its a great time to turn towards a more zen and leisurely style. The newest collection from Kravet Fabric tailors to the minimal in taste who still want to portray a chic and tasteful style. Modern Luxe Izu features a gorgeous array of new patterns and updated colorways highlighting on Japanese tea garden and temple culture in its color schemes and nature inspired motifs like the calming and serene koi ponds, and the rolling mountains and hillsides that surround this culturally rich region. We’re going to be discussing the highlighted patterns and talking about their style. Let’s dive in.
In the design world there’s so many approaches to consider when you begin styling your space. Traditional and timeless styles are favored frequently for their longevity in appeal, but every now and then its refreshing to see something bold and different. Today’s piece will be centered around the eccentric world of vibrant velvets, specifically animal inspired velvets.
The saying with high risk comes high reward, and we believe it applies in the design realm also. These upholstery and multi-use fabrics may not be the easiest to incorporate to your space, but executed well and you have yourself a bold and striking design moment. Typically when executing a pop of color like this, you can find a tone that will either compliment or contrast and place strategically for the most flare. We have a large selection of animal prints in varying jewel tones and neutrals. If you’re specifically looking for the velvets for high luster and shine, you can click here. Until next time!

In the year 2019 the shift from printed media to digital is apparent now more than ever. On Social Media platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram we’re seeing more interior design inspiration and showcase at a higher speed than ever before. In today’s post we’re going to be highlighting some interiors designed by different stylists from all over the world, this time specifically with Schumacher Fabric. Let’s dive right in, and if any of the highlighted designs speak to you, simply click the swatch to shop the patterns.
We absolutely adore this family room in this modern ranch style home designed and styled by James Thomas. The execution in the coordinating Schumacher fabrics in this room compliment all the patterns used extremely well, keeping the color scheme together and not feeling too busy.
On the two lounging chair you’ll find Antique Strie velvet covering the majority of the seat. On the front cushion of the chair is Full Circle in navy. The velvet provides high luster and deep color with the patterned fabric on cushion in a more muted navy color to contrast.
Beach vibes anyone? We’re loving the minimal geometric take on these beach chairs upholstered in the Maxwell fabric in Navy. This fabric is also available in other colorways, but the navy stands out for a truly coastal living inspired look.
Available in varying shades of neutral tones, Maxwell is a stunning geometric print that can add interest and detail to any upholstery. Stick around and keep up with us on our blog for more social media highlights and trend spotlights.
Join us today, as we stroll through this beautiful private residence in Philadelphia owned by interior and style enthusiast Nicole Cole. Using a combination of vintage pieces and modern seating she creates a cozy home environment that doesn’t feel too sterile or dated.
In addition to the actual furniture pieces themselves, Cole makes use of well placed accessories and plant life to truly give the space a sense of personality and taste. Something that really stood out to us in the home was the use of planted tree branches, as opposed to flowers or traditional plants. Pictured above on the left, the tree branch in the artisanal vase really provides a lot of natural flare.
The color palette of Cole’s home has an excellent sense of contrast. The muted and neutral colors of the natural wood pieces and flooring mixed with the eccentric jewel tones of the seating and accessories creates a nicely balanced space that doesn’t feel overwhelming or underwhelming.
This concludes our home highlight, if you like content like this you can always follow us on Facebook or Instagram to stay up to date. Until next time!

The weathers finally heating up, and who wants to spend this precious time of the year indoors? In today’s piece we’re going to talk about turning those outside or semi-outdoor hangout spots to feel fresh and stylish. Nobody wants to sit on some rickety rubber chairs or compromise comfort and style. We’ve gathered a couple pieces from our shop that we think can add some seasonal flare to the deck, patio, or backyard.
Sometimes just adding a piece or two can really spruce up the entire space. If you’re feeling you want something totally different, start from scratch. Our in-stock furniture is a great way to get different items for your project in a much quicker time frame for these kinds of mini projects. Until next time!
An activity that has been on the rise as of lately among crafters and designers is vintage renewal, or repurposing. For any of those confused we’ll elaborate. It is when you take something old, and possibly without much use or out of date style, and add a touch of craft or modernity giving it new life or purpose. The practice is becoming more and more popular as the desire to not waste, or support cheap unethical creation becomes more center stage.
Designer and lifestyle enthusiast Matthew Williamson recently posted some photos of vintage arm chair he had repurposed. Using hot pink paint, and upholstery fabric from Osborne and Little. What sounds like it could potentially be a hot disaster, actually created something of some high appeal with a bit of a controversial style. We’ll let you be the judges, pictures below.
The fabric pictures on the chairs is known as ‘Flamingo Club’ by Matthew Williamson, produced by Osborne and Little. Featuring gorgeous fan palms, detailed flamingos and a unique mix of colors among the florals and background.
If any of the fabric or images peak your interest, simply click them to learn more. We’ll continue our trend and style spotlight here on the blog every week. Oh, and for a little bonus check out Matthew Williamson’s niece checking out his creation.

A flame stitch, which is another word for ‘Bargello’ means a type of embroidery in woven fabrics that produces a flame like effects to the striping colors. The Valkyrie flame stitch is an excellent example of this technique and a great way to incorporate some unconventional stripe related fabrics into your upholstery.

Lee Jofa Fabric’s interpretation

This abstract print features the silhouettes of butterflies scattered through out. In addition to this wildly colorful print, there is also a more cool and neutral rendition available.
Designers Guild Fabric’s interpretation
Mirrored Butterflies – Parchment by Designers Guild Fabric is a highly detailed allover print depicting a wide variety of different butterfly species. In the room shot provided, you notice how gorgeous the details are in each motif of the print almost as if they are straight out of National Geographic. If you look closely you can also see the fabric being used as drapes in the background of the photo. The mixture of bright colors and geometric positioning atop crème is delightfully refreshing.

Welcome to Caitlin Mociun’s 917 square foot Brooklyn condo. Mociun currently resides here with her husband Tammer Hijazi. Mociun originally purchased this stripped down apartment in 2015, after a year she moved in, but she didn’t get to decorating straight away. “I typically tried to avoid décor the incorporated color, so the couch was a bit of surprise for me”, Mociun jokes. She took what we like to call an ‘organic’ approach to decorating. Instead of trying to plan the entire condo’s décor and design straight away, she built it’s design and structure piece by piece. Using this method, the space has a sense of style and character that can’t be achieved by any interior designer, it’s a home that tells a story of Caitlin and her taste. Using her eye for design, Mociun has collected a number of artful accessories from all over, not just home décor stores, hardware stores, flea markets, you name it, you can find gems just about anywhere. Check out the rest of the shots of their space below.

L.A. Design Concepts has been bringing designer furnishings into homes since 1987.
Shop Your Local Design Center
L.A. Design Concepts can provide you with our "Letter of Introduction" to shop your local design center. Our letter will provide you with a higher level of customer service when the showrooms recognize you are represented by an industry known firm.
While visiting the designer showrooms you will have the advantage of seeing all of the furniture and textile lines up close and in person. You may also request "tear sheets" on items selected that displays a photo and all of the product specifications.
Our story begins in 1987 when founder and designer Frank Keshishian launched L.A. Design Concepts a residential interior design firm.
While Mr. Keshishian designed homes for his clients, he recognized a fast growing market of consumers who preferred to make their own design decisions. Understanding that desire, Frank created the first design service offering consumer access to designer "trade only" furnishings.
In 1988, L.A. Design Concepts was nationally recognized as a groundbreaking company revolutionizing consumer access. The Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles was very intrigued with L. A. Design Concepts working model and approached Frank in 1990 to formulate a consumer service program within their design center. L.A. Design Concepts was now the first service within a design center providing consumer access to Ã¢â‚¬Å“trade onlyÃ¯Â¿Â½? furnishings. Shortly thereafter, an increasing number of interior designers and architects recognized the value of streamlining their access through one single source. Our service allowed designers to focus on designing for their clients without having to maintain accounts with each individual manufacturer.
