While the night was about the stunning new marble collection making its stateside premiere, one guest was particularly thrilled about the crystal, specifically the now-iconic Crystal LED Bulb she won and had designer Lee Broom autograph.
The Nouveau Rebel Collection that just unveiled last month at the London Design Festival was the excuse for the talk and party last Thursday, October 2, at A+R La Brea, an interruption during the London designer’s holiday in Los Angeles—and which we made as fun as possible in the spirit of his rare West Coast visit. His wonderful team crated the gorgeous collection of lighting, candle holders and cocktail glasses made of Carrera marble and handblown crystal and sent it to Los Angeles for this special evening, and Lee and his partner Charles Rudgard arrived 2 days before the event to the store to help in the installation.
Loved seeing fellow retailers such as Stefan Lawrence from Twentieth, and so many of the designers we also stock at A+R in attendance—including wrk-shp’s Airi Isoda, the lucky guest who took home the signed Crystal Bulb. Bravo!
Check back at the A+R Reader soon for a Q+A with Lee Broom from his LA visit.
