Designers And Style Experts Celebrate The Muse At LEGENDS 2015 This Week


If you detect a subtle buzz in the Los Angeles air this week, you’re not imagining things. You’re just sensing the energy and anticipation surrounding this year’s three-day design extravaganza known simply as LEGENDS.

Now in its seventh consecutive year, LEGENDS has officially become the largest design event of its kind on the West Coast, attracting thousands of designers from around the world to take part in keynotes, cocktail parties, open houses, exhibitions, and networking events with some of the country’s top design editors, writers, and bloggers.

Presented by the La Cienega Design Quarter (LCDQ), LEGENDS kicks off with a glitzy gala on Wednesday, followed by a jam-packed schedule of events Thursday and Friday.

During the festivities, LCDQ invites attendees to check out Where Muses Dwell, an intriguing exploration of design inspiration. 62+ designers from all corners of the country were asked to bring their muses to life, showcasing who, what, when, or where inspires them most. The breathtaking results will be on display in the windows of LCDQ member shops, showrooms, and galleries throughout the three-day event.

LEGENDS is a veritable style utopia for design junkies, featuring an unparalleled array of can’t-miss activities and appearances. Keynote panels led by esteemed magazine editors like Elle Décor’s Michael Boodro, and cameos from design icons like London’s Nicky Haslam are just a few of the 30 scheduled attractions. Also on the agenda are seven cocktail receptions and parties, two lunches, a variety of book signings, trunk shows, open houses, exhibitions, and an epic finale soiree hosted by California Home + Design.
