Step inside any LA fashionista's closet and you're bound to find Current/Elliott denim. Founded by best friends (they met at UCLA) Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, the brand launched a thousand copycats and had cool girls clamoring to own the casual, high-end jeans. Emily and Meritt's aesthetic has always been firmly rooted in the classic American vibe, and the LA-based duo is renowned for styling A-list actresses for the red carpet, as well as serving as designers and creative directors of the beloved fashion collection, The Great, which is full of Americana pieces.
Their love of all things American extends beyond fashion to the furniture and design world, and the inspiring pair have teamed up with online resale marketplace Chairish (known for an impressive selection of vintage and pre-owned furniture) to unveil an exclusive curated sale. "We love scouring vintage stores, flea markets and antiques dealers to hunt for special pieces that inspire us in our homes, designs, and wardrobes. Chairish is one of our favorite resources for discovering those one-of-a-kind timeless treasures," Emily and Meritt tell us.
The curated sale on Chairish kicked off today and features over 100 hand-selected items that perfectly reflect the aesthetic for which Emily and Meritt are best known. Their deeply American (and occasionally colonial) picks include everything from LA-cool industrial marquee letters ($195) to an 1890's white steamer trunk ($747) to a 7-piece copper bar set ($50), with items ranging in price from $22 for small accessories to $6,000 for a set of George Nakashima walnut chairs.
