Reese Relfe, a fourth generation Californian and founder of Canyon Design Studio, designs pieces embodying the casually elegant lifestyle that she lives and loves. A native San Franciscan now based in Los Angeles, the natural light, the color of the hills, and the mist of the beaches find their way into Reese’s feminine and luminous designs.
The palette of Canyon Design Studio’s pieces is refreshingly modern and sophisticated, designed solely to enhance the wearer’s beauty. Made with exquisite craftsmanship in Los Angeles, each piece is selected from the studio’s highly curated collection of gemstones and responsibly-sourced materials. Renowned for her extraordinary trunk shows, Reese holds these sought after events throughout the year in famed boutiques and at private gatherings throughout California and beyond.
Reese started her career at Sotheby’s while living in New York. Later, upon returning to Los Angeles, she became a successful private art dealer specializing in California modernist paintings. Her expansive art history background continually informs her inspired use of color, contrast, and shape like no other contemporary American designer. A love for historic textiles, particularly Native American, led her to create her own exclusive line of tissue-weight cashmere scarves and lush throws, which have become luxury staples for her most discerning clientele. Along with Canyon Design Studio’s own exclusive designs, the studio carries art and global finds that are equally as unique and coveted.
In just one year, largely through word-of-mouth, this California company has proven to be a trusted resource for unique and beautiful finds.
