Our Story

Lawson-Fenning is a true California brand.

Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning began their exploration as furniture design students at ArtCenter College in the late 1990s. They found Pasadena to be a welcoming place with its appreciation for the contemporary golden age of design. The pair took a studio space in Old Town Pasadena as their workshop to make new furniture and reimagine vintage pieces.

Today, the designer-maker duo uses simple forms with considered detail to merge nature's unparalleled beauty with the heritage of California craft.

The core of our brand is the LF Collection where form meets function. The collection is a study in purposeful materials and transformative designs; handmade in Los Angeles with the same family of fabricators we have worked with for over 20 years. 

We complement the LF Collection with works of vintage design from the 20th-century and curated objects crafted by an inspiring roster of makers; limited-release ceramics, fine art, lighting, textiles, and gifts.

As a result, our two-story Melrose Avenue flagship showroom is a dynamic space that never quite looks the same from day to day. We keep our inventory moving so we can build an idea, collaborate and discover new artists.

We are sincere in our mission to be a hub for both enthusiast and professional designer by creating quality bench-crafted furniture for inspired living.
