We called design, architecture, and style aficionados from across the world to LEGENDS 2022 … and more than a thousand of you came, from around the world! It was exciting to see addresses from London and Berlin among our registrants.
The La Cienega Design Quarter hosted our first post-pandemic LEGENDS event May 3 to 5, 2022, after a two-year break.
We are thankful to the hundreds of people who joined us in Los Angeles for a big dose of design immersion and an experiential adventure beyond our keynotes.
○ For the first time at LEGENDS, Benjamin Moore offered a “What’s Your Aura” interactive experience.
○ LCDQ LEGENDS 2022 had two highly successful pop-ups: Parachute launched a new bedding collection with Jake Arnold “in bed” and Studio M Lighting unveiled a new collection created by Mat Sanders.
○ Kitchen appliance, cabinetry and countertop companies led by Cosentino came out in force.
○ Editors enthralled on conversations ranging from the creative process and design trends like “Making Modern Warm” to travel and inspiration.
○ Business matters also reined, with sessions ranging from licensing to handling “terrible clients.”

LEGENDS 2022 Theme
California is the land where Cedric Gibbons and Tony Duquette turned theatrical sets into living rooms, and where the architectural wonders of John Lautner and Lloyd Wright continue to live on with a new generation of residents. Where, in the 1950s and 60s the likes of interior design icons William Haines, Elsie de Wolfe, Michael Taylor and Frances Elkins shopped the La Cienega Design Quarter. And where the beat goes on with some of America’s biggest design magazine headliners and social media influencers.
See your favorite designers take over the LCDQ in the one and only California: The Golden State of Design, and meet the top design magazine editors and authors in the country.
