West Knoll Collection
The West Knoll Collection is an American furniture design firm and manufacturer located in West Hollywood, California. The company specializes in contemporary original and custom furnishings for residential and commercial clients. Designers that have inspired West Knoll designs include Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Karl Springer, Alberto Giacometti and Paul Laszlo. The signature element of West Knoll pieces is that they are entirely hand-crafted. The company is staffed by expert artisans and craftspeople who specialize in the techniques of gilding, leafing, chinoiserie and various faux finishes, stone casting, mirror etching and custom metalwork. The Tom Accent Table, an original West Knoll Collection piece, is crafted from solid walnut and has a glass insert with églomisé double-sided gilding on top. The company's Nelson Coffee Table, a contemporary two-tiered walnut construction, has a raised gallery edge on the top and bottom, with brass casters for ease of movement. West Knoll Collection also makes contemporary and modern seating, such as the walnut-framed Petal Chair: its legs have a shiny brown-black finish that contrasts elegantly with its cream upholstery. Currently, West Knoll Collection is under the leadership of designers Warren Coulter and Jean Smith. In addition to its main West Hollywood location, the company has showrooms locations in Boston, Aspen, New York and other US cities.
