Elena Pierce
Design Assistant

Currently a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) Elena is getting her Associates degree in Interior Design. She has always had a passion for design, being involved more in the aspects of fashion before exploring interior design. Originally from Seattle, Elena draws her inspiration from the outside world particularly being drawn to natural materials and elements. Although she loves a natural pallet she’s not afraid to play with different colors and textures, believing that a room should reflect all aspects of someones personality. 

Lena Arnett
Design Assistant

After spending the last several years in Texas, where she graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, Lena is back in her hometown of Los Angeles studying interior design at OTIS College. She now combines her background in business and graphic design with her love for interior design. Lena enjoys mixing the old and the new and is always in search of antique, one-of-a-kind conversation pieces to pair with her modern, clean style.
