Who Else Wants a Piece of Hollywood History?

As an interior designer I am exploring the art-deco phase of my life and no one is more my current design muse than recently departed well-known Hollywood talent agent, Ed Limato He was my friend and he influenced me more than he could ever know. I miss him terribly.
Edward F. Limato
Visiting Ed Limato's many homes was always a visual delight. Since his passing I’ve decided to feature several of his personal furnishings in my Los Angeles showroom. Each piece is unique and speaks of impeccable style. Drop by my showroom on La Brea anytime to see some of these fine examples as many will be proudly displayed for sale throughout the year with all monies going directly to the Ed Limato Foundation.  

For example, this French Bergere Chair (set of two) sat proud in Limato’s Pool House.
I’ve re-upholstered the set in grey linen to create a fresh chic and sophisticated look.
I’m proud to have designed this deco style side table for Limato, this deco side table which we now have copied was placed prominently in Mr. Limato’s Billiard Room. 
The wooden frame structure of the 3-piece Plateau Table below makes it a rare find as most were made of silver metal.  This beauty graced the Library room of Limato’s Estate in Beverly Hills and boasts silver leaf on an intricately carved wood frame and oxidized mirrored top. 

These truly classic styles from Limato’s estate are sure to compliment anyone’s d├ęcor. This is what he continues to teach me even from beyond, good quality is timeless and transcends almost every style.

Another great opportunity to take home a piece of old Hollywood lore and own one of Ed Limato’s unique furnishings is to attend the A.N. Abell major fine art and antique auction to be held February 20, 10 a.m. here in Los Angeles.

  1. I love the French Bergere chairs! It has been a while since a piece of furniture made my heart pitter patter like that. :-)
