We pleased to present our second Hot Property: The Design Issue, and doubly pleased to feature the Top 40 Under 40 Southern California designers. These bright young stars of L.A.’s interior design scene are shaping the future of how we live in the region – dictating trends, disrupting norms and, most importantly, creating functional beauty inside the home.

These amazing young interior designers use this idea as a personal credo, matching the individual deftly with the structure, its architecture and the surrounding landscape, ultimately creating something unique in Southern California and often globally.

We’d like to graciously thank our sponsors, without whom this celebration of design would not have been possible: Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery and Miele Appliances. Both companies have found a niche in high-end interior design products and are a beautiful addition to any living space.
