Rework-d Interior Design
This week’s Thursday 5 interview is with David Henderson-Sposato, founder of Rework-d interior design services in Long Beach, CA. David’s bold color choices and sophisticated mixing of eclectic components have made him stand out in southern California. Here’s what we asked.
1. How long have you been doing interior design?
I have been designing for the past 7 years. I started in textiles and moved into upholstered goods & furniture design and eventually wound up running my own design firm and showroom.
2. What’s the best thing about being in Long Beach, CA?
The best thing about being in Long Beach would have to be the people. I love this city; it’s such a mellow place and the people are very laid back. There’s a definitive style to the Long Beach resident that combines a beach-y vibe along with a fearlessness to experiment with color and texture.
3. What’s your favorite color? PANTONE® announced their 2014 Color of the Year as Radiant Orchid. What do you think about that color?
I would have to say that my favorite color is navy blue! There’s a calm assertiveness for me in the rich blue hue. I love the subtlety of radiant orchid, I would love to see it paired with a lush black velvet, or bright pop of yellow, a chair frame lacquered in it would be amazing. It’s a great pastel for adding contrast to a room.
4. What would you say is your design philosophy?
My design philosophy is: do what makes sense! There are really no limitations for me when it comes to design. I personally love the juxtaposition of old world romance mixed with industrial modernism. Even more so, I love bringing my client’s personalities to life through their respective environments.
5. What’s up next (or in the works)?
We hope to open our second location in the coming year, a spot that caters specifically to the retail side of the business, something small. A place where we can showcase some of our more rare pieces; we can’t wait to spread the Rework-d aesthetic!
