In the early days of the La Cienega Design Quarter, the shops offered a heavy dose of antiques. Today, the 57 shops, showrooms and galleries in the LCDQ feature a mix of antiques and contemporary design.

In a keynote led by Jenny Bradley, Traditional Home’s Senior Design & Lifestyle editor, panelists and interior designers Madeline Stuart, Elizabeth Dinkel, and Thomas Callaway will discuss why traditional and historical designs can be the most daring of all for the 21st Century. Join in the conversation on whether traditional design is the most radical work today at the George Smith showroom on Thursday, May 7th, from 11am – 12pm.

Madeline Stuart is a leading member of the Los Angeles design community who’s equally at ease designing a 1920’s Hollywood hacienda, a Fifth Avenue Manhattan apartment or a Rocky Mountain retreat. Her projects reflect a collaborative relationship between architecture and furniture, function and form, client and designer.
