Made Solid Moving to Fountain Ave in Los Angeles

Peter Maxwell

We've just outgrown our current studio space and need to stretch out! 
Our Angeleno Heights studio has served us well over the past 3 years, and we'll certainly miss it, but it's time to move. We've been looking for about a year and have settled on a space in the heart of East Hollywood, close to Silverlake and Los Feliz, close to our roots.

Our new studio is on Fountain Ave... and if you know the area, it's the locals' cut from Hollywood to the Eastside and back. It sits just below Sunset Blvd. 

The building itself is newly rehabilitated, 1934 art deco with amazing details (see below). 
It has history, elegance and crazy high ceilings.
our expansion includes a larger production studio and a retail showroom in the front.

We'll stock all of our classic pieces, as well as many that we can't put into regular production.
Custom leatherwork, homeware, and select
We're also bringing a few friends along the ride Mt Hill, 2120, Studio Cue, Smokey Sumi, Dubbleworks and many many more will be stocked. 

Opening mid-June!!!

Inspiration 1

Design does not happen by accident. The source may not be conscious or obvious, but our history and preference guide our hands.

Our pieces are inspired where we've been, what we've done, our surroundings and friends.
Here are some influences on our current collection.
