Global Lifestyle Brand helmed by international designer Kelly Wearstler is renowned for unexpected, bold Maximalist chic design pioneered by its namesake. The company’s breadth of influence spans from residential and commercial projects, bespoke furniture, home and fashion collections, hotel design, and collaborations with some of the industry’s leading names. With a completely distinctive style that juxtaposes refinement with rawness, melds color, sophistication and swank and seamlessly blends many periods of furniture under one roof, Wearstler has revolutionized the look, feel and meaning of modern American design.

The brand encompasses collections of home accessories, furniture, jewelry, ready-to-wear, fashion accessories, objects d’art based on the vibrancy of her interiors, a flagship lifestyle boutique on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles and premiere store at Bergdorf Goodman in New York. Hand-cultivated by Kelly, the flagship boutique houses one of a kind vintage pieced procured from her travels around the world as well as her own designs. In addition to the freestanding boutique, her eponymous collection is available at fine boutique, department stores around the world and on her own robust e-commerce site, KellyWearstler.com.
