Inspired design that fits seamlessly into your home, no matter what your style: That’s the raison d’etre behind the LAX line by the L.A.–based multidisciplinary design studio MASHstudios. The LAX Dark series is no exception: stylish, multifunctional pieces, all done in dark woods that lend a feeling of warmth to a room.
Part of MASHstudios’ philosophy is that design should be effortless — or at least look it. So believes Bernard Brucha, the founder of this Los Angeles–based firm that specializes in classic white-box commercial interiors softened with subtly curved corners and wood-grain accents. This aesthetic has carried through to the company’s LAX series of residential furniture. All of the line’s understated beds, desks, shelving, tables, and chairs are made from solid English walnut and finished in natural oil. Pale, powder-coated aluminum panels add a twist to the cabinets and drawers — a clever wink to that white cubicle that’s neither cute nor extraneous.
