As founder and principal designer of MASHstudios—the design firm behind the creative offices of Pinterest, Uber and Yelp—Bernard Brucha noticed there was a bit of a hole in the market for flexible larger seating options. In response, Brucha’s team has unveiled a new sofa line through MASHstudios’ offshoot brand, LAXseries furniture company. With their thoughtful, fluid arrangements, the Point Dume, PCH and Wade sofas are well suited to the office, of course, but also translate perfectly to home environments. Made locally from natural and sustainably sourced materials, the welcoming yet tailored sofas are sold online, as well as by appointment at the firm’s new studio and showroom. “Everything is made contract-grade and intended to last. It’s not supposed to be a two-year sofa,” Brucha says. 2611 W. Exposition Blvd., L.A.; 310-313-4700. MASHSTUDIOS.com; LAXSERIES.com
