Tour a Domaine-Designed Space Full of Vintage Treasures
This weekend in Hollywood, behind an inconspicuous building facade, artists, designers, furniture dealers, and creative minds will come together to celebrate Los Angeles’ brightest design event. "Parachute Market is a biannual design fair with a curatorial concept that directs the vision for the show,” describes co-founder Coryander Friend. Together with co-curator Bianca Chen of host JF Chen, Friend has brought together some of the biggest talents in Los Angeles to showcase their work and finds in an environment of shared creativity.
Domaine was lucky enough to join in on the fun by designing and curating a space to display some of the selected exhibitors’ best work. All of the pieces used are available for purchase, both this weekend at the show as well as online, through Parachute’s brand new e-commerce site. Scroll through our slideshow to see the Domaine-designed space and shop these stunning items.
Inspired by this year’s curatorial concept, EVER PRESENT—where timeless design is created by mixing vintage treasures with contemporary artists—our team sought to seamlessly combine old and new by using a united color palette and textural story.
As Parachute Market attracts seasoned interior designers, as well as art lovers looking for new inspiration, the Domaine editors designed our space to feel both high-end and chic, yet still accessible.

Utilizing pieces that would work well in a variety of interior styles, our editors combined vintage lighting with handcrafted furniture to evoke a collected vibe.
The selection of new creations by contemporary artists is immense, so the team sought to balance the recent pieces with vintage items, which is also one of the event’s goals. "The show pays homage to the incredible assortment of vintage goods that are available here in California," Friend says.
Opting for a backdrop of graphic wallpaper panels courtesy of Wolfum, our team chose pieces in bold, saturated jewel tones to highlight the space. Rich wood accents bring a sense of warmth to the vignette, which is grounded by vintage Moroccan rugs.

In addition to Domaine’s must-see space, the great thing about Parachute Market is that it gives attendees easy access to all of the featured dealers and artisans. “The way the market is curated is unique—you won't find this in other warehouses or showrooms,” Friend says.
"Bianca and I are looking to reinvigorate the design fair concept,” shares Friend. “We're taking it out of the cookie-cutter model and treating it more like a gallery or group show."
