MATERIALS ARE SO INSPIRING! whether it be powdercoated aluminum tubing, thick amish sourced leather, marble painted canvas, hudson valley farm sourced goat hides, multi colored slumped glass, whitened ash hardwood, or a mechanics discarded car rotars, LMO studio collections are constantly playing with high brow aestethics & MATERIALS paired with unusually sourced OBJECTS.
