I believe in humanity. I believe in beauty.

I believe in crafting spaces that enhance the lives of my clients. I believe that our physical environments have power. Creating rooms that inspire people, that elevate them, that help them live in the moment, to have meaningful conversations with their loved ones, to get a good night’s sleep…that is what inspires me: impacting peoples' lives for the better.

Hi, I’m Christopher.

Friends call me CK.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS

THE BOOK JACKET BIO

Combining Jet-Set nostalgia with California modernism, Christopher’s work and products have been featured in publications around the globe.

This prolific designer has a growing product brand that exemplifies the modern California lifestyle. Christopher’s collections include upholstery and casegoods, an artwork collection for Wendover Art Group, candles, and bedding. Christopher is the author of two design books: 2015’s California Modern and 2017’s Making Midcentury Modern.

Born in San Francisco and raised on California’s Central Coast, Christopher brings a synthesis of big-city style and relaxed resort living to his work. He received Bachelor of Architecture and MBA degrees from Drury University.

I’m the kid drawing floor plans and furniture designs in middle school, who spent weekends touring model homes with his mom, and preferred art class to little league. 

 

I’m the guy who moved from LA to Palm Springs at the tender age of 27, when my parents passed away, because my dad taught me that life is too short not to do what you love. When you love what you do, he said, you won’t work a day in your life.

 

Today, I’m the man who is living his dream through helping other people create their dream homes. Still drawing floor plans, but now I get to design those model homes. And it doesn’t feel like work at all. Early riser, avid reader, eternal optimist, and doting dog daddy.

WHERE YOU'VE SEEN US

A Golden State of Mind describes Christopher’s attitude towards design – and life. With a belief that surroundings should inspire, and that good design impacts our lives for the better, Christopher creates dazzling interiors and products that are refreshingly exuberant.
