About Maddie Sadofski

L.A. native Maddie Sadofski has always been inspired by the glamor of the film industry. She is co-owner and director of Thanks for the Memories, where designers, celebrities, treasure hunters, and museums converge to find clean-lined, original, and beautifully restored furniture from the 1920s through the '70s, paired with fun (and often rare) accessories. Her decorating advice? "Don't worry about what goes with what. Buy what you really love and it will all work together."
