La Cienega Design Quarter is based in LA.

“Since the 1950’s, The La Cienega district has been the leading destination for interior design, shopped by icons like William Haines, Elsie de Wolfe, Tony Duquette, Frances Elkins, Chet Chidester, Michael Taylor and Kalef Alaton. Today it continues to be the leading destination as top designers and selective shoppers nationwide make their rounds in and out of shops, galleries and showrooms on the boulevard and verdant courtyards with bubbling fountains tucked away on adjacent streets.”

Legends 2014: Novel Interiors is a three day event where designers and architects come together to hear from fellow designers. There are cocktail parties, keynote presentations and showroom windows designed by top designers to check out. This is the event to mingle with and learn from fellow designers.

As presentations overlap and window displays are aplenty, I will do my best to share with you tidbits of what is going on. My focus will be those presentations taking place at rug showrooms and discussions that touch on rugs.
