LAist Profile: Leslie Landis And The Transformation Of Space
Leslie Landis is an enigma, wrapped in a vintage coat, eating a hot dog, wrapped in bacon. This LA-based interior decorator with rising “it-girl” status has gained widespread attention for her fiercely held aesthetic and unmatched intellectual understanding of design. She boasts a devout social following that rivals Andy’s Factory, and her Silver Lake bicycle gang is not to be trifled with either.
Leading the ascent of LA’s art elite with a modern bent that manages to be both clever and neat, her personal and professional style is the embodiment of confident elegance. High concept or low brow, she intuitively understands the push and pull of form versus function, and her marriage of sharp-edged modernism with disciplined, vintage-eclecticism makes for a superiorly comfortable living space or office that shows off a style you never knew you had.
After completing a “required” attendance on the LA circuit of modern-design showrooms, she went on to sharpen her technique as buyer, curator and merchandiser for the expansive La Brea Antique Collection.
Currently, you can find the ubiquitous Miss Landis decorating for private clients and businesses, photo styling for magazines, set decorating for films, exalting the merits of velvet flocking at Walnut wallpaper, hanging art at neighboring Silho, or striking an award-winning pose in a downtown photobooth.
Whether you need a one-off, kick in the pants consultation or a soup to nuts decorating revamp, this shrewd conceptualist is your sure thing.
