With an eye for eclectic design and a radar for discoveries with artistic talent, interior designer Taylor Jacobson is the type of person you want to shadow for a day of shopping.
Her eclectic spaces always include at least one showstopping piece — the type of piece that begs the question: "Who makes this?" Curious to know more about her design resources, we decided to get her short list of go-to artisans. Check out the five she can't live without!
"Jason is a remarkably talented lighting and furniture designer who works with metal, wood, leather, and repurposed objects in a very fluid way. I'm constantly inspired by his work. Recently he created a custom chandelier for my client's dining room, and it's now the centerpiece of the space. His lighting collection is available exclusively through Lawson-Fenning."
"Kelly is an inspiring artist and interior designer living in Los Angeles. I was first introduced to her KL Studio line of 'Geo' ceramic planters, dishware, and candles. Her latest creation is a series of handblown glass and metal pendant lights, available in custom colors and finishes. I love the little geometric bead detail on each."

"Ana is a multidisciplinary artist based out of New York. I fell in love with her Bonbon pendant lights, which she creates out of brightly colored string wrapped around bent wire frames. Her color combinations are vibrant and quirky — I think of these lights as little jewels!"
"Chad Petersen and Dakota Witzenburg are two studly dudes crafting custom furniture and cabinetry out of their workshop in downtown LA. They consistently strike that delicate balance between functionality and beauty. One of my favorite pieces is this massive table with its scorched finish and brass detailing. Imagine the impact this would have in a conference room!"
"Morgan is an LA-based ceramicist. Her pieces are simultaneously art and craft, each unique and filled with whimsy. They have such a sense of personality. These are the types of objects, which, when layered into an interior, add that special quality of the handmade."
