Trina Turk is to southern California what Lilly Pulitzer was to Palm Beach. Just as the late Florida socialite channeled the sunny optimism and low-key chic of Palm Beach through her brand, Turk’s design outlook and aesthetic is informed by the elan and outdoor lifestyle of the Golden State. Turk says she draws much of her inspiration from her restored Mid-Century homes in Los Angeles’ creative enclave of Silver Lake and in Palm Springs, as well as her travels up and down the California coast. Today, you can experience her unique brand of vintage modern style, not only in her signature fashion apparel, but also on bedding, decorative pillows, and durable indoor/outdoor fabric by the yard.

In 2007, Gail Elwyn and her husband, Barrett, started Rethink Renovations, offering eco-friendly construction and design services. Soon after the birth of their first child, they decided to expand the company based on their own family’s needs. “I was becoming more aware of the environment, and eco-friendly has always been important to us,” Elwyn says. “We were doing a lot of research on products in the home, and being a mother, I’m also constantly shopping for products for our own home. That’s what led to our new furniture line—I just couldn’t find enough options in St. Louis that I liked. So instead of just the option of buying online, we want to offer a line of furniture that people can physically see and touch and really feel the quality. And it’s something from the Midwest.”
