It's no secret that interiors, art, and fashion are most compelling when they come together to inspire one another and translate into functional lifestyle. The Apartment by the Line, a shoppable apartment-style showroom, masters the convergence of design realms by bringing all three together under one roof, showcasing an edited mix of handpicked designs. Next up for this lifestyle haven? A highly coveted collaboration with DECASO.
Vanessa Traina, Executive Creative Director of Assembled Brands and founder of The Apartment by the Line, teamed up with the Decorative Arts Society (DECASO) to curate an exclusive edit of antique and modernist pieces from 15 Los Angeles-based vendors. When defining her style and edit in an interview with DECASO, Traina said, "my personal aesthetic is rather traditional and classic, so I have an immediate affinity for the timeless enamel lighter from Cartier and the tamarind wood stools—which would act as perfect accents in any room—but the Italian Daybed is unparalleled in its commanding aesthetic, sure to enhance and elicit many compliments.”
President of DECASO Kendra Frisbie also recognized the design partnership as an ideal pair. Frisbie describes the collaboration a clean, fresh mix, stating, "DECASO has an incredible roster of dealers who scour the globe to find really special antique, vintage and bespoke pieces. Vanessa has a such a unique design point of view and curator’s eye that she could immediately spot items that she loved — from a wide range of Los Angeles-based dealers. And when those pieces are mixed in with the clean, cool vibe of The Apartment by The Line the whole space really comes together."
Designers within the collection include East Meets West Antiques, Gallery Girasole, Pasadena Art Monkeys, and Reform, just to name a few. The edit landed at The Apartment's Melrose location this week, and will be available there and on DECASO's website through October 19. Between the promising vendor lineup and the design masterminds behind it all, this is sure to be a collab you don't want to miss!
