Lawrence & Scott

Lawrence & Scott

The collaboration between manufacturer Lloyd Scott Kirsch and Los Angeles interior designer Lucia Lawrence began decades ago, with a common interest in both design and Asian travel. "No one else was going to China to manufacture things in 1960," says Lucia’s daughter Marcia Van Liew, who became director in 1990. Kirsh passed away long ago, and mother and daughter now often work with the children of craftspeople that Kirsch and Lawrence met decades ago. The collection continues to reflect the founders' discernment. "We don't pursue trends," Van Liew says. Indeed, the company’s bronzes are buried in Chinese earth for long periods to achieve the desired patina.
