Meet the stylist-turned-media director-turned-designer and the architecturally-minded-spatial-master
A brand new season of Shop the Show is right around the corner at AmericasMart! We’re looking ahead by checking in with each of our talented influencers, including interior design team Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone. As co-founders of LA-based Consort Design, they take on interiors projects nationwide. Additionally, Mat and Brandon have launched Consort’s line of fully customizable casually chic furniture to bring their signature vintage-inspired, California-cool style to the affordable luxury market.
Mat Sanders, Creative Director of Consort Design, describes himself as a “stylist-turned-media director-turned designer.” This multifaceted creative cut his teeth editing and launching décor publications like Domino, MyDomaine, and Apartment Therapy before designing celeb interiors and homes on TV. Brandon Quattrone, Design Director of Consort, is an “architecturally-minded spatial master” hailing from Soul Cycle’s design team and internationally acclaimed SHoP Architects.
We pulled back the curtain on this powerhouse duo’s inspiration, and are sharing a few teasers of what they’ll be scouting at market for 2019 and beyond. Read on for more from Mat & Brandon!
