Inaugural Design Miami.LA Fair Opens in Holmby Hills

Exclusive Access and Dynamic Talks From May 16-20

The inaugural edition of Design Miami.LA opened yesterday, running until May 20, 2024, at a private estate in Holmby Hills. Curated by Ashlee Harrison, the fair features an array of collectible designs, emphasizing California’s rich design heritage and its role as a global tastemaker. Sainte Marguerite en Provence is the exclusive rosé sponsor and many delightful surprises are inside the estate. 

In a preview, we saw that the serene beauty of the mansion worked in harmony with the varied splendor of the artful design of the 21st-century furniture, lighting, and objets d’art placed all around the home. It’s an experience that you don’t want to miss if you can get a ticket. The information you need to attend is on the Design Miami.LA website
