Kalon Studios is a LA based husband and wife design company that makes beautiful Sustainable furnishings. Husband, Johannes Pauwen is of German and Tunisian Bedouin descent and wife, Michaele Simmering is American. I love husband and wife teams, they make for a happy family and a happy world! I also love how their design philosophy embraces my global call for all to enliven your inner space!
"To be kalon is more than being beautiful; it is having a beauty that both is and inspires excellence. For the Greeks, this meant a beauty linked with moral worth and usefulness...The Greeks believed that an object that was kalon had a beauty powerful enough to inspire excellence in those who beheld it. It is our sincerest hope that our products will do this as well - that the thoughtfulness and consideration put into each object we’ve made will pour back out into the homes they grace and the world of which we are all a part." ~Kalon Studios
This LA based husband and wife team have created a beautiful & sustainable collection of essential furniture pieces and well crafted nursery furniture. "The project they are most proud of is their daughter Io Zara Pauwen for whom they both designed and named their children’s collection ‘IoLine.’" (Isn't that wonderful?!)
