Michael Taylor

February 27, 2011

Over the last 45 years Michael Taylor has come to be synonymous with elegance, quality, and sophistication. Taylor’s interior design work is recognized and renowned worldwide and has been extensively published.  I’m sure that Michael Taylor is one of the most revered designers of the Twentieth Century and Michael Taylor Designs is ushering in the Twenty-first Century by bring new furniture, lighting and fabric lines in each of the five corporate showrooms.  New lines range from period antiques and masterfully crafted reproductions, to outdoor furniture inspired by contemporary architecture.

Many influential decorators have worked in a signature style, but few contributed as many enduring influential furnishings to the design market as did Michael Taylor. His interiors appeared in every major magazine from the beginning of his career in the 1950’s to, quite literally, the end. Michael was the designer’s designer. His sense of scale was wonderment unequalled. Consistently denouncing the cluttered and pretentious, he had a simple ethos: when you take something out, you must increase the size of what’s left. The inventor of what has come to be known as the California Look, he became famous for white-walled, light-filled rooms with boldly over scaled furniture and decorative accessories. Taylor fans recognize his work to be pure and simple but by no means plain – a combination of rusticity and glamour – and you know I love a good rustic modern

More than a decade after his death, Taylor’s reputation as an innovator in the world of home design glows undiminished. Michael Taylor Designs has created collections meticulously edited for today’s consumer at the top.   A strong respect for the quality and expectations that the brand represents assures the company will continue to serve the interior design trade with creativity and responsiveness;  the Company’s carefully edited lines of furniture and accessories reflect a contemporary sensibility while never losing sight of their traditional heritage.
