Last week, the La Cienega Design Quarter celebrated their 4th annual Legends of La Cienega show, which is a three-day event that celebrates art, design and culture in the form of parties and spectacular window displays. For this year's "Windows to the World" theme, a mix of emerging and world-renowned interior designers have transformed the windows of a handful of LCDQ storefronts into inspiring global destinations—and the results are mind-blowing.
From penguins and igloos in Antartica at Jamal's Rug Collection to India opulence at Dragonette, click through the gallery for our top picks, read on to learn more about each design and see them in the flesh now through Sunday.
· The Jamal's Rug Collection (657 N La Cienega Blvd) window by Trip Haenisch was inspired by "Snow Hill Island, Antartica."
· The Dragonette (711 N La Cienega Blvd) window by Alissa Sutton was inspired by "the glittering charms of India, a salute to master craftsmanship, materials dripping with opulence: rich silk brocades, hand carved architectural wonders, intricate embroidery...”
· The Gray Morell (915 N La Cienega Blvd) window by Christian May was inspired by "the magical desert oasis of Palm Springs, where mid-century modern crashes into old world traditional, and everyone gets along just fine. The bright desert palette, the golden sun, the azure blue of swimming pools—liberally mixed with colorful cocktails!”
· The Fuller & Roberts (729 N La Cienega Blvd) window by Betsy Burnham was inspired by "gravel driveways, corn on the cob, clear, white light, riding bikes, hanging out with family around the table and eating s’mores after dinner: Quogue, New York is like an unfussy Hampton."
· The Compas (845 N La Cienega Blvd) window by Joan Behnke: "Paris is a city and a museum that never ceases to inspire designers. Therefore we wish to honor the City of Lights and all the creativity it holds."
· The Galerie XX (665 N La Cienega Blvd) by Ken Fulk was inspired by "Provincetown, MA."
· The Hollywood at Home (724 N La Cienega Blvd) window by William-Christopher Design: "This year a long-time client came to us with a new project—a castle in Ireland. Off we went to Dublin, and were immediately struck by the brightly painted doors on the Georgian townhouses and the bright spirits of the welcoming Irish people."
