As an interior designer, Kelly Wearstler finds influence in Modernism and old Hollywood glamour as created by Dorothy Draper and William Haines, and the work of architect Aldo Rossi. Her style has been described as Hollywood Regency and Maximalism. She is credited, alongside Jonathan Adler and Miles Redd, to have brought “the florid and the decorative back to interior design”. Today, focusing on dining chairs, we bring you her fantastic products so you can get inspired.
