Finding Tim Burton-Inspired FurnitureAuthor:Marissa Gluck
Right now one of the hottest tickets in L.A. is the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA. Featuring 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, puppets, concept artworks, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, the show seems to be a blockbuster despite lukewarm reviews. While Burton’s signature mix of Edward Gorey meets Dr. Seuss is one of the most distinctive committed to film, it made us wonder if his influence can be found in home furnishings.

It turns out it’s not that hard to find Burton-esque touches throughout the design world, with designers in Korea, Japan, France and, yes, the good ‘ole US of A finding inspiration in his creepily gothic vision.
