about lemay+rivenbark design lab

"We find inspiration in the 12 magazine subscriptions we can hardly get through each month. Then we draw it, feel it and create it with welding and sparks, sanding and shards, and metal and wood and fairy dust."

It all started (as most things do) with a vintage 1960s Simmons metal dresser. MC purchased one, wanted to update it, and found a grinder that took all the paint right off, revealing a beautifully textured, shiny work of art. From there, the hobby turned into a passion –– she was refinishing steel furniture left and right until one day, she decided to teach herself how to weld, leaving her career in exercise physiology behind. And when Allie relocated from her design consulting gig in LA, the duo combined forces and moved out West, where they refurbish and build to their hearts' content. show more
