California midcentury walnut and black laminate coffee table with hexagonal top, circular laminate inlay, and pedestal base. By Brown-Saltman. Circa 1960. The first Lawson-Fenning store opened in 1997, while Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning were still students at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. It has since evolved into a Los Angeles fixture, with showrooms in Silver Lake and the design corridor of Beverly Boulevard. Lawson and Fenning's offering is a contemporary one with a sense of place and history: Modern shapes and finishes mingle with traditional details and context, and 20th-century pieces are eloquently mixed with new designs from their own line of sustainable, locally crafted furniture.
