LEGENDS 2019, May 7-9
LEGENDS 2019 TO CELEBRATE ICONS OF DESIGN
35 OF THE BRIGHTEST DESIGN STARS ALREADY SIGNED ON TO CREATE WINDOW VIGNETTES
What becomes an icon most? Fifty design stars from around the U.S. and the world are going to define that in their own way during the La Cienega Design Quarter’s annual highly acclaimed LEGENDS event, which this year will celebrate the design stars of yesteryear.
The most sought-after event on the national design calendar is set for May 7, 8 and 9, 2019. This year’s theme – Legendary: Icons of Design – is a revival of the very first LEGENDS theme in 2009.
True to tradition, the selected interior designers will transform the windows of the 50 LCDQ shop and showroom windows to honor legendary icons including Albert Hadley, Rose Cumming, David Hicks, Elsie de Wolfe, Mark Hampton, Andree Putman, Billy Baldwin, Dorothy Draper and others.
After LCDQ-hosted kick-off parties in New York and in Los Angeles, 35 interior design stars have already committed to creating windows honoring icons of design and only 15 windows are left. Designers from around the U.S. and abroad who will participate in the LEGENDS 2019 windows include Nina Campbell from London, Bunny Williams, Alex Papachristidis, Neal Beckstedt, Sasha Bikoff and Nicole Fuller. Popular Southern California designers including Jeremiah Brent, Bradley Bayou, and Brooke and Steve Giannetti also have signed on to design windows.
The largest event of its kind supported by major corporate sponsors and a dozen media partners, LEGENDS brings thousands of influencers, enthusiasts, top design editors, and purveyors of design from across the U.S. and from around the world to the LCDQ for three days of keynotes, open houses, discussions, book signings, exhibitions, social events and networking.
New features are in store for LEGENDS 2019:
– There will be 3 full days of programming, kicking off with breakfast “Shop the Quarter” on Tuesday, May 7, with luxury transportation throughout the LCDQ. A Design Dash sponsored by Sotheby’s Home will make the experience all the more fun, followed by the highly sought after “Opening Celebration” that draws a legendary crowd to toast the LCDQ.
– Embracing Hollywood and the movie industry, the LCDQ will transform the VIP Lounge to a “The Legendary Green Room” outfitted by Pacific Sales where LEGENDS guests can refresh and recharge their electronic devices.
– Several area hotels are offering discounted room rates for LEGENDS 2019 attendees. Click here to make reservations.
