The La Cienega Design Quarter (LCDQ) is excited to invite you to Where Muses Dwell, to what will be an exciting exploration of inspirations for design during LEGENDS 2015, May 6 to 8, 2015.

This year, 62 talented designers from around the country will transform the windows of the LCDQ member shops, showrooms and galleries on the theme of Where Muses Dwell. The designers have been asked to present to the design aficionados who throng the LCDQ during LEGENDS where their muse dwells. We’ve asked them to bring their muses to life and show us WHO, WHAT, WHEN or WHERE inspires them most.

The LCDQ has a special invitation for you: Come and be inspired to discover your own muse.

For more than half a century, the La Cienega Design Quarter has been the destination for sophisticated shoppers looking for top quality design for the home.

This legendary district, with its romantic courtyards,
alluring windows and treasure troves of antiques, furniture, lighting, fabrics, stone, rugs, accessories and art, is known
as the “shopping heart” and workplace of the interior design profession. Having expanded to include Melrose Avenue to
the west and to the east of La Cienega and side by side with some of L.A.’s most glamorous restaurants, fashion boutiques and salons, the LCDQ is the West Coast style
destination for all.
