After opening a creative studio dubbed ‘Studio 22,’ David Levy has linked up with Montreal-based furniture manufacturer CDI Furniture for his first project. The “Rose Bowl” collection, which includes a range of interior decor and furniture pieces, draws inspiration from Levy’s Los Angeles upbringing.
The collection’s name comes from Levy’s experience going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market every month. “I used to go for vintage rap tees, records, posters, etc… But as the years went by, I ended up spending more time in the furniture section getting inspired by all the mid-century furniture,” Levy explains. Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames furniture, Levy saved up enough money to purchase an Eames chair — an icon of Modern design style — at 15 years old. “That was the beginning of a serious obsession,” Levy admits.
From couches with built-in storage units to coffee tables with glass panels and mirrored side tables, the collection’s homeware draws influence from modernist design principles and showcases a clean, quality-focused aesthetic. Sleek wood furniture pieces contrast with minimalist white and black rugs and cushioning, while Pulp Fiction and LACMA posters direct the collection back to its Los Angeles inspirations.
The Rose Bowl collection is available to preview at the Las Vegas Market from now until January 30.
