Legends Design Festival Returns


Join leaders in the design industry on May 9, for the return of L.A.’s 2023 LEGENDS design festival. Scattered throughout a number of showrooms in La Cienega’s Design Quarter, the annual gathering of great minds will feature a dynamic mix of engaging discussions, product introductions and more, all in the theme of  “The Fashion of Home”, a nod to fashion royalty, and the announcement of the inimitably fashionable.

Running through May 11, the annual gathering will deliver the iconic window designs curated by several talented designers including Jake Arnold, Paloma Contreras, David Frazier, Amy Meier, Breegan Jane, Noz Nozawa and Studio Heimat as well as keynote discussions. This year, icons Alexa Hampton and California’s own Ken Fulk will receive this year’s LCDQ’s Living Legend Awards.
