(December 9-13 - Los Angeles) The LA Art Show is pleased to welcome celebrated interior designer James Magni as the 2014 VIP Lounge Designer. The VIP lounge, a haven for collectors, and art professionals is re-designed each year to showcase a contemporary interpretation of the marriage of art and design. In keeping with Magni’s signature modernist approach, the interior designer and author of Magni Modernism, will transform the exclusive lounge space into a sleek and sophisticated retreat for high-end collectors and celebrities. The VIP Lounge will be open during show hours from January 15 – 19 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall. James Magni’s modern space will feature a rich grey color palette on the walls, carpeting and leather and fabric upholstery. This impactful palette will be highlighted by hints of natural bronze, polished stainless steel and white gold leafing on furniture, mirrors and lighting from the Magni Home Collection. The luxurious fabrics are from Romo, with drapery from Ilona Drapery and floral arrangements from Eric Buterbaugh. The VIP Lounge will also feature James Magni’s selection of prominent works of contemporary art from several galleries exhibiting at the show.
