However not all furniture is capable of capturing the elegance only found in artisan works of yesteryear, and it is even rarer to find a piece able to capture this elegance while still maintaining the dignity of modernity. Balance is everything when considering this style of furniture and there is only one person that comes to mind when considering the seamless blend of old elegance and modern style.

Upon our visit to the
West Hollywood location, we also noticed the overwhelming (in a good way) number of crystal and glass used for décor. This should not come as a surprise however, Christopher Guy began by designing statement mirrors and glass pieces before expanding into a lifestyle brand. The inspiration for some of the products was strictly drawn from nature and can be seen in the glass resembling and portraying a waterfall, and the LED crystal chandelier’s depiction of snow-fall.
This impressive flagship showroom is fully iced out, and furnished with classy furniture that is a staple to Christopher Guy’s brand. It is decorated to illustrate the life-style that it wishes to propel, but don’t just take our word for it.
