Behind the shoot: Furniture designer, Stephen Kenn
March 27, 2015

Meet Stephen, the creative mind behind LA’s Stephen Kenn furniture and one of our featured #SaySomethingGreat talent.

Stephen moved to LA 10 years ago to make jeans and then transitioned into designing men’s bags out of old military fabric. But he saw a place for that same masculine aesthetic in furniture so he developed a sofa and he and his wife started a little company. His simple mid-century designs use sustainable materials and follow responsible manufacturing.

“My wife and I love to travel so I pull a lot of inspiration for my pieces from the art and culture of other countries. Japan is my favorite destination. I’ve fallen in love with the culture. The way they approach retail is so thoughtful and intentional—it’s really inspiring.”
