Designer Stephen Kenn found a warehouse in L.A. filled with WWII military gear and repurposed the old materials to create a ‘new’ fabric for a unique set of furniture called the Inheritance Collection. The seats and sofas also feature steel welded frames with a marbled brown finish, custom webbing belts, and smooth leather straps, which were all worked on locally. The finished designs are described as “simple, comfortable, and conducive to conversation.”
