Simple but stylish many of the items at Urban Colony are unique because Robert Wylie designs much of them himself. Of course they are more than just a furniture store, with custom upholstery and lighting this original and contemporary company is an important stop for every well dressed home or set.
Robert began his furniture career in the 1980’s selling mosaic tile on furniture from the back of his pick-up. He rocketed to the forefront of furniture design when some of his works appeared on television, including The Tonight Show, and soon the commissions for custom designs began pouring in.
He and a friend started a furniture company, “Malabar Coast”, in 1993. This wasn’t enough for Robert Wylie, however, wanting to create and sell some of his own designs. From this desire “R&R Design Imports” was started with a new partner. For a decade this allowed Robert the time to truly perfect his talent for both furniture design and finding just the right imports from South East Asia.
While starting a successful staging business, Robert also opened “Urban Colony”. After a couple of moves his newest location is in the heart of Downtown LA. This 6,500 sq. ft warehouse has a large showroom filled with furniture, accessories, and more. Stop by and visit both their storefront in LA and even glance at some of their inventory online. You won’t regret it.Web Site: http://www.urbancolony.com/ Urban Colony
