Caesarstone Hosts Elle Décor Dinner Party at Kathryn Ireland's Home

by ·

During the annual La Cienega Design Quarter Legends event, VIP designers, artists, architects and influencers of all artful interests travel to Los Angeles, CA to experience the vibrant design district and engage with like-minded professionals and fans.

During this year’s event and in celebration of LA design and style, Caesarstone hosted a private Elle Décor dinner party at British-born designer of textiles and interiors Kathryn Ireland’s home on the evening of May 9th. The premier guest list included heavyweights in the industry like Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Michael Smith, Sabrina Soto, Sarah Sherman Samuel, Louise Roe, Sophia Bush, Marg Helgenberger, Whitney Robinson, EIC Elle Décor and Kate Kelly Smith, executive publisher of Hearst Design Group SVP.

Ireland’s Santa Monica home was recently featured in Elle Décor Magazine, and many designers who hadn’t visited prior were anxious to see how she had styled the home.

This 1920s Spanish-style home includes a guest cottage and design studio and is ideal for gatherings of this sort, as the welcoming indoor/outdoor floorplan allows for socialization and is the perfect vantage point for watching breathtaking west coast sunsets.

 

The whole home has a coastal, Moroccan vibe, and Ireland’s background in textiles is evident as layers of fabric and colors adorn each room, from floor to ceiling.

 

The beautiful craftsmanship of Ireland’s home is further seen in the use of Caesarstone throughout—from the kitchen, where Fresh Concrete is the surface of choice for the countertops and island, to the master bathroom, where Calacatta Nuvo covers the floors, full shower, surfaces and pony wall. Quartz Reflections is featured in the guest room as the bath vanity, shower surrounds and other vertical applications.

Much like her home, the dinner party was laid-back California style, yet elevated. The main tablescape saw flowers of deep burgundy, peonies and artichoke décor mixed with gold and brass-tapered candles on top of an embroidered table runner.

“This lovely evening brought the country’s finest designers together to enjoy food, drink and dialogue without the constant vibration of smartphones. Each table had their own joyful experience,” said Erika Egede-Nissen, Caesarstone Director of Media Relations.

The evening wrapped with everyone gathered around the kitchen island clinking glasses to each other, Caesarstone, Elle Décor, Kathryn Ireland and the beautiful state of the design industry.
