We love modernist and eclectic interiors, furniture and architecture of Paul László, one the most influential American decorators of the last century.

Born in Debrecen (Hungaria), László (1900 – 1993) came to Los Angeles in 1936 and quickly became very successful decorative designer. Most of his clients came from wealthy political and acting elite, for whom he designed luxury apartments, villas as well as stores and commercial interiors.

This model with the sketched interiors shows his design for his own house created in 1937. European modernist influences meet new flamboyant lifestyle under the hot Californian sky.
