In an industry where copies run rampant and original ideas are few and far between, designers like Laura Byford and Carol Veronique, the design duo behind Malibu based Byford and Veronique, are like a breathe of fresh air. When they described their work to me, I was intrigued. When I finally had the chance to see their first collection, I was floored. Their metalwork was unlike anything I have seen. Their technique has allowed even the most intricate patterns (think vintage lace) to be captured forever in metal.
"With our beautiful concept of mixing natural textures, coated with resins and liquid metals including white bronze crocodile skins, rose gold shagreen effects and many more, we hope to have captured the imagination and interest of renowned designers from all over the world and we continue to experience a rapid sales growth and global expansion of our brand," explains Byford. Their first collection launched in the Spring of 2014 with coffee and side tables, as well as an outdoor bench in microcement. In the Fall, we can expect to see their outdoor collection expand into seating, and also the availability of their specialty metalwork to be seen in wall panels and tiles. An entire kitchen backsplash in their rose gold Divine, or a fireplace in their deeply cracked Bonneville? Now we are talking.
