A New Book Beauty & Mischief: The Design Alchemy of Blackman Cruz Is Launched Today

 Blackman Cruz is one of our favorite showrooms in Los Angeles. The 9,500-square-foot showroom at Highland Avenue space has been open since 1993 and is an eccentric mash-up of antique items and contemporary designs including furniture, lighting, art and curiosities that spans numerous periods and styles. The owners, Adam Blackman and David Cruz, known for their quirky, daring style, which has drawn in celebrities and tastemakers worldwide.

We attended a book sign event two weeks ago–Beauty & Mischief: The Design Alchemy of Blackman Cruz. Art and culture journalist Stacie Stukin takes an all-encompassing look into the ethos and inspiration of the famed interior design duo Adam Blackman and David Cruz. Here are some photos we took from the showroom.

The video above is showing the entrance. They are the master of mixing and matching. We love how they pair an antique credenza with contemporary art and wall sconces. The fresh flower arrangement is stunning.

In the video above, we love the whimsy and organic vibe of this tabletop which sets the mood for a relaxing party night.

There is always a romantic way to bring a piece of antique back to life –a fresh flower arrangement or the item from the different era.

We got tons of inspirations from the showroom visit. Now the book Beauty & Mischief is available today and you can order by clicking the link below.

Polanco Dining Table

Looking for a stunning and one-of-a-kind statement design that elevate your dining room in the new year of 2023? This Polanco Dining table is the perfect choice thanks to its oxidized metal base and characteristic oyster-cut mosaics wood top. And the story behind of creating this unique table is mind-blowing— “a family of artisans scours the forest, salvaging Mexican ash trees that have fallen naturally and would otherwise go to waste. Fragments of the recovered wood, as well as pieces of European ash, are cut and arranged by hand, creating unique mosaics where scorch marks, water stains, and natural graining add to the character of every tabletop.”

We would love to pair this table with minimalist dining chairs.
