Last night's meet-up took place at Craig Olsen's relatively new store, a treasure trove of custom furniture, what Olsen has aptly nicknamed, "custom couture"...

Olsen, the driving creative force behind LA staples Plantation Home and Bamboo Colony, is at home in his new space where he puts his own spin on the classics, updating traditional shapes with a modern sensibility. What looks to be vintage furniture at first glance, scoured at high-end flea markets here and abroad, are actually custom pieces, that can be tailored to your individual needs.

Olsen believes that an element of surprise should mark every room, whether it's an oversized lamp, studded walls or a great piece of art by a new artist. And, with a plethora of unique and arresting pieces, whatever you choose here, refined for your individual needs, will add a certain "je ne sais quoi" to your home. Trust Craig and let his sharply-honed eye lead you to the home of your dreams. Visit him in person or via his website
