About Us

It all started with... Michele Sommerlath
Before starting her career in Paris, the French-born Sommerlath was raised in Morocco—an early life experience that influenced her taste for design and color. She arrived in the United States 25 years ago after a friend convinced her to move here. After falling in love with Venice, California, she opened her first store there. Her intuitive approach to curation involves buying only what she loves, regardless of big names. Interior designers, dealers, set decorators, and mid-century enthusiasts alike are all part of her clientele. Her current showroom is located at Pasadena, in the Pasadena Antiques and Design Mall.

New Services For Art and Design Lovers 


The whole purpose of Sommerlath's display layouts are to give customers ideas for recreating their own modern combinations at home. We have a new service called Send Us A Picture where customers can text or email her with a photo of the space that needs decorating help. We'll then respond with 3 to 5 suggestions and help. The great thing about it is you can get excellent decorating advice about a specific project. Michele Sommerlath has a lot of experience in doing this type of decorating, because she used to do staging for homes that were up for sale.
