The beautiful lamps, furniture, home accessories and fabric that make up the Jamie Young oeuvre have an origin story that’s as charming as they are: artists Jamie Young and David Jeter credit a 1997 daytrip to Mexico as the springboard for the launch of their thriving company. While south of the border, they purchased a trunk load of rustic garden pots and planters from a roadside stand, and then promptly resold the lot to their neighborhood flower shop; that experience inspired the couple to manufacture their own line of weathered, culturally-influenced wares and, eventually, open an L.A.-based showroom. Today the company supplies their elegant pieces, from table lamps to occasional furniture to jewelry, to stores throughout the country and luxury hotel chains around the world.
