A Light-filled Home and Studio in Los Angeles
At Remodelista, we’ve been tracking furniture and lighting designer Brendan Ravenhil‘s upward trajectory for a while now. He and his wife, Marjory, recently moved into a midcentury modern house in Echo Park, where they share a studio. We recently asked for a tour of the new digs, and they kindly obliged.

The sun chases me out of the studio in the afternoons, but it encourages a migratory pattern of sorts. I love having different hours and working late at night. It’s magical living in LA if you work at home and don’t have to commute.”

When asked how he shares the space with Marjory, Ravenhil replied: “We had separate work spaces in our old house, so this is the first time we have shared a space. We can close it up, so it’s like having two separate studios if we need to.”
