Inheritance Collection by Stephen Kenn
Stephen Kenn and Bek Opperman have the biggest supporters to Jon and I for the past few years. I first met Bek when she took me into her home when I was 18 and nomading around the globe. I met Stephen when Bek and him start dating years later. Jon and Steve were already close, and actually introduced Bek and Stephen to each other. Needless to say the four of us have besties ever since and rule the double date world. These two may actually be the nicest people I’ve ever met. I’m so excited to share with you their newest endeavor into furniture design.
This beautiful new collection of furniture from Stephen Kenn is sourced and made locally in Los Angeles using (washed and softened) US military half shelters as upholstery. Steve and his wife create steel-welded frames that are then rusted and coated with a clear varnish to give them a marbled brown appearance. Once the frames are finished, they have custom-sized leather and webbing belts made, which are exact replicas of a WWII-era Swiss mule belt. The belts are adjustable, so you can keep the sofa’s form tight as it ages.
