New Happenings, New exhibits, and New York Times,

We're thrilled to share all these exciting news & happenings in addition to our BIG MOVE!  It's only been the first quarter this year, and already we've had so many exciting things happen as if there were some sort of cosmic forces that made all the stars align and everything have fallen into place beautifully.  The first couple months we did a little west coast tour with great companies like Urban Outfitters (Seattle), Heath Ceramics(San Francisco), and Poketo (Los Angeles).  We launched a new edition of our Ovis Chair with Avo at AD Home show.  Now this coming month, we'll be making our big move to NY as well as showing and attending Salone de Mobile expo in Milan! 

Here's what we're up to this month and in May!

Sight Unseen / Aug / 2013

We can't believe that L&G Studio got selected as one of the top 25 studios to make it in the Sight Unseen's American Design Hot List for 2013 as well as mentioned in one of the story they contributed on L’Arcobaleno

We've been a HUGE fan of Sight Unseen blog ever since Jill & Monica started the design blog in 2009. They have been an integral part of the establishing the American design scene in while cultivating  up & coming design talents.  

So we couldn't be more honored to be recognized as one of  the design studios on their top 25 list! Thank you Jill & Monica!

"Best Tray Ever" For reals?!

We're more the elated when we saw a recent post of our Brass & White Perimeter trays not only mentioned but also used  in one of Emily Henderson's home makeovers.

emily_henderson20130404_2.jpeg

You'd think I'm joking if I said this in person, BUT I have the link to prove it, and honest to god this is a quote from Em Hen herself....

"...the tray is from Ladies and Gentlemen Studio and it’s probably the best tray that has ever been made."  

We couldn't believe it ourselves either and had to go "WHAAAA??? for reals?! no way!!"  But it really didn't take long for us to snap into reality and  accept the truth on this one..... ;)

Dupe Home Tour on Apartment Therapy

You may or may not know that Dylan & I live and share a duplex with our good friends, Jared & Chika, and baby Lisle!   We were lucky enough to be chosen by Andie Powers ( co-owns Assemble )  to have both of our  place featured on Aparment Therapy recently.

LG on Apartment Therapy6.jpg

We share a 1960's duplex  in Ballard, Seattle.  Under this one roof, there are two units,  two couples (Chika & Jared on the left, Jean & Dylan on the right) , two studios (

Ladies & Gentlemen Studio and R&L goods), and two babies ( C&J's precious baby name Lisle and J&D's whiny cat, Pudding).  

Here's Jared, Chika & Lisle's colorful inviting home. We admire their brave use of bright fun colors throughout their space. They also have the best collection of coveted artworks, heirloom items and furniture.  

Check out the rest of their lovely abode on AT, HERE!

Our side on the other hand is all about floating open shelves...It's not entirely untrue to say that we just don't know how to edit down. For us, the shelves really functions as our 3 dimensional inspiration board where we can be reminded of all the things that inspires us whether it be things that our friends make, vintage treasures we found or material swatches. 

You can see the rest of the home tour with some of our trade secrets on AT, HERE!

L&G Interview on Sight Unseen

We're so thrilled to be on Sight Unseen's UP & COMING column!! SU is hands down one of our fav design blogs! Bith Jill & Monica has such a keen eye in spotting the current & upcoing trends whether it be art, craft or design.  

For the column, Monica asked us quite a few hard hitting questions about L&G over the phone and patiently listened to us as Dylan & I struggled to sound like we know what we're doing. This is probably one of the most in-depth interviews we've done thus far and we learned more about oursevels more than ever! 

We shared all sorts of things about ourselves such as how we met & started, where we find our inspirations, who our design hero is, things we created as a kid, things we have around our house, and how somtimes people think we're an escort service....which in all honesty, we probably would be financially better off if we had taken that route. :P

We're so happy that we've came this far to be on Sight Unseen!

Also here are some photo outtake:

Our design hero, Enzo Mari. 

Inspirational findings whenever we go on nature walks.

Our collection of vintage houseware on our kitchen shelves.

Our collection of thrifted glass jars we've collected over the years.

 

Jean's collection of random office supplies in the office.

 

Some of our best thrifted finds in our living room: Knoll couch, Hans Wagner rocking chairs, unknown vintage woven rugs, and the jade plant.

Thanks Jill & Monica! XOXO

L&G and Anthology getting festive!

Anthology just launched their lovely online Holiday issue and we're excited to be one of the contributers for them for the first time!!

For this issue, Meg (the editor) asked us to make a special holiday wreath for the "Holiday Hang Ups!" (pg 43) section featuring various handmade wreaths! I never make one before and thought "OK, why not!"

My vision was to make something that's simple, not too holiday-ey but still warm & cozy all at the same time. I was a bit worried that it would look too boring....but thanks to Anthology team who styled & shot everything so well that they made it feel extra nice & festive!  

Check out the rest of the Holiday issue  and get in on the festivities!

Americans Unite!

We've been lucky to know the awesome people behind the American Design Club since we started showing at the NYIGF back in 2010. We all seem like such babies back then....and boy have we all came a long way!!

Especially for AmDC, they've now established themselves as one of the main portal for many of the talented up & coming American desginers to be part of the greater design community.

Besides organizing & curating various design shows, they've just recently launched their online shop just to kick things up a notch!  

And already...they got this great mention on the NYT online....with our servers in there, too!!! 

....AND printed in the real deal!

NDD Report on Sight Unseen

Check out everything that Monica & Jill (from Sight Unseen) did for Noho Design District including our Ovis Chair & Aura light at Zero + Maria Cornejo.

See the full post HERE!

It was seriously amazing to see all the shows, spaces, and works they coordinate and organized for the entire neighborhood of Noho during New York Design week. I don't know how they did it all...but my suspicion is that they just don't ever sleep. Yup.

Red Hot Pigs!

We did a custom batch of red piggies upon Bradford's (founder of FAB.com) request for their upcoming popup shop during NY Design Week starting MAY 17th!

We're so thrilled to be part of all this as well other awesome events like AmDC's Raw + Unfiltered show, and Noho Design District.

Metropolis magazine mentioned both Raw + Unfiltered and FAB's popup shop as one of the destinations to check out during NY Design Week! How exciting!

We've only made a limited quantity of these babies just for the popup so get 'em while they last!

We love process shots and apparently so does Sight Unseen!

L&G on Craft & Culture

Lots of exciting things are in the air for L&G....we're SOOOO excited to be officially part of this new online shop, Craft & Culture, that recently launched beginning of the year!

The founders of C&C (Hana & Jason), also based in Seattle (yet another awesome point for Seattle!) has a vision to create a super well-curated platform featuring self-makers, designers and artists. They're starting off with talented local artists / designers like Meghann Sommers of &C, Ashley Helvey, Elizabeth Patterson and Actual Pain...and now added, US


We're so excited to be part of something as special as C&C. Both Hana & Jason have such a great eye and vision for the company... not only are they providing a platform for designers to sell their work, they also go an extra mile to capture the personality and work philosophy by interviewing the designers and photograph their space!

They took all these amazing photos and we're just ecstatic with how nice and professional everything looks!

....so it DOES make a difference when a pro takes photos compare to my ghetto photo taking skills! ;P

C&C will be adding plenty more new and exciting national & international designers in the coming month, so stay tuned!

L&G in Monocole Magazine!!!!!

Sorry to have to play favorites , BUT this one deserves a few EXTRA exclamation mark!!!! 

 

We LOVE this awesome UK magazine and was more than stoked to have BOTH our Chalk Piggy bank AND Perimeter Tray be featured in the April issue!!

Reading this magazine is like having THE BEST worldly European friend with phenomenal taste to hang out with you.....I just automatically feel a bit more awesome and well-informed about all the current events around the world. 

On top of all that, I get to meet the most amazing people, see the most incredible spaces and places, AND learn about  the best places to eat & shop!!! 

Now if ONLY that friend was REAL.....

BUT since I don't have a real friend like that,  that's where Monocle comes in! 

Hurray! my life is saved again!  Monocle, you're the BEST!! We're gonna be BFFs for, like, ever.

L&G get's a CUTE mention on D*S!

We can't help but get a little giddy whenever Grace Bonney says anything nice about us!! Especially this nice mention about our Terra Cotta piggy, shakers, and S&P Pawz. On top of that we're also happy to announce that Grace herself have given us an official stamp of approval for bring back the "z" in place of "es"!  YESSSSSS!

Does that mean we can start bringing back using "X's" in place of "EX"again??

Because only god knows I've been dying to start say things like, "Why yes pleaZ, I would be Xtremely delighted for some some Xtra pepper on my salad, thank you very much"

L&G in an Ukranian Magazine?!

We nearly cried when we got this in the mail! It's such a beautiful high-end design magazine...I just wish I know how to say it & read it!

 A two page spread and all!! This is the biggest feature for us EV-AH!

Also part of my amazement is actually seeing the photos we took printed in an ACTUAL magazine...especially in such nice & pretty glossy magazine paper and all!! There's something so exciting about that!!!

Most of the photos are taken by us, with the exception of our portrait by our talented friend Kyle Johnson!

 

Oh and ooh... how I love the stamps...

I still can't believe this amazing featuring and spread of our stuff!!

So..maybe it's NOT impossible for us to get a centerfold next time???  ;)
