This is Convo By Design and today, we are talking super luxe gaming tables and changing ideas about residential entertainment. 11 Ravens, the LA based multi-disciplinary studio with a fondness for fun and games and luxury design.

Launching the new collection from their brand new showroom in LA’s crown jewel of design, the Pacific Design Center also made sense. I sat down with friend and Director of Business...

No Stress Design? Yes, Please | 347 | Interior Designer Lorna Gross

10/4/2021
This is Convo By Design with interior designer, Lorna Gross, a super-chill creative with a hyper-focused approach to customer service. I think it bears repeating. A super-chill creative with a hyper-focused approach to customer service. Think about that for a minute. Regardless of your job, designer, architect, showroom manager, publicist, fabricator, journalist, the approach to customer service is pretty much the only thing of which you have total and complete control.

Yeah, we’re talking about wallpaper. So much has changed when it comes to design in general over the past 10 years, but dramatic changes in wall coverings have been a major focus for many creatives who were actively seeking new design frontiers to conquer. I would say the last major developments in wallpaper came in...

Remembering 9/11, Healing Through Architecture and Design | 343 | Paul Murdoch and the Flight 93 Memorial

9/9/2021
This is Convo By Design, commemorating the tragic events of September 11th the best way I know how with a conversation about remembering, honoring and healing through architecture. It is hard for me to believe that September 11th happened 20 years ago this week. Time has a funny way of blending and bending that flexes an individual timeline. 9/11 seems like yesterday but January 2020 seems like forever ago. You know what I mean? I spoke to Paul Murdoch, of Paul Murdoch Architects. I’ll keep...

Artists and artisans alike and I always challenge myself to go beyond what you already know and bring you new ideas. That’s not always easy. Sometimes...

The concept was fairly straight forward, a panel featuring designers of color talking about their experiences in the industry. The purpose was straight forward as well, to provide a forum for the conversation to take place, to shed light on untold experience and extend the mic to those traditionally...

All About Color | 331 | The Emotion and Feel Proper Color Selection Can Bring, Everything You need to Know with Bailey Li Interiors, Layered Dimensions and Rocky Rochon

6/22/2021
This is Convo By Design with a conversation about color. Not the color for any particular period of time but how and why color selection is so important. There is nothing wrong with stating color trends or designating colors of the year, but I have always felt that kind of promotion is a bit gimmicky. Color selection is as personal as the design itself. I believe that. And if that is true, then designating a specific color is antithetical to that entire premise. So, I wanted to have a...
