Grace Home Furnishings
Describe the featured project.
This project is a renovated 1920s Spanish-style home in Beverly Hills. The client, an international fashion and textiles executive, loves vibrant color, so we incorporated bold upholstery, drapery and pillow fabrics throughout the home. We also used many mirrored and glass pieces to keep the interiors light and bright.
What would you like readers to know about your company?
Grace Home Furnishings was founded by designers Michael Ostrow and Roger Stoker. We began in 2000 as a furniture and interior design showroom in the Brentwood Village area of Los Angeles, and over the years we have expanded into manufacturing the Grace Home Collection© of furniture and fabrics and opened a second showroom in the Uptown Design District of Palm Springs. Our store locations feature inviting atmospheres where you can shop, place a custom order or get personalized decorating advice from a team of in-house designers.
From what sources do you derive creative inspiration?
We are inspired by traveling and the past. We love shopping for vintage pieces wherever we go and often use these finds as a starting point in the design process for our Grace Home Collection© furniture and fabrics.
What earns you the highest marks from customers?
Our customers appreciate our ability to make the design process simple, fun and exciting. We love becoming part of their life and following their careers, watching their kids grow up, etc. We enjoy working with them to adapt the design of their homes to fit their evolving needs and styles.
In what ways are you an innovator in your industry?
In addition to being interior designers, we also design and manufacture our own Grace Home Collection© of furniture and fabrics.
In what ways do your homes attract attention?
Our use of bold color often stands out amongst our peers. We aren’t afraid to mix bold colors, patterns and textures—life is too short to live in black and white!
