The ‘Filthy Few’ Collection


Introducing the ‘Filthy Few‘ from A Life Designed: Carefully curated, standout industrial pieces worthy of building a room around.

The Filthy Few… The baddest of the bad, the alpha dogs, the crème de la crème. Taken from 1960s outlaw motorcycle culture, the term Filthy Few designated the elite bad asses of the “gang” and the select pieces of industrial style/rough luxe furniture shown below definitely live up to that label. These are ‘space defining’ pieces, so unique and distinct in style and character you can spin-off an entire room’s look around them.  Are you ready to take your man cave to the next, dare we say…’filthy’ level? Well then my friend, these are for YOU — The A Life Designed Filthy Few! Continue reading…

SOLD! — Mulhauser Plycraft Chair


Returning A Life Designed client Steve Hermann Design adds our Mulhauser chair to their collection for Palm Springs hotel project.

It’s pretty safe to say that Santa Barbara-based firm Steve Hermann Design has excellent taste, (obviously.) One look at the award-winning firms’ portfolio and client list including Christina Aguilera, Vera Wang, and Courtney Cox, as well as entertainment executives, foreign royalty, and members of Forbes’ top ten wealthiest list proves that. Plus… They clearly know a great mid-century modern chair when they see one too!


It was only a few weeks ago that the firm first contacted us to purchase our unique Percival Lafer Chair for their renovation and grand re-opening of the iconic Horizon Hotel project located in Palm Springs, CA. Now they are back to snatch up the George Mulhauser Plycraft chair to include in the project. We have no doubt it will look right at home in the soon to be reopened hotel’s mid-century modern inspired vibe. We love happy, repeat clients!
