Honorees at La Cienega Design Quarter’s (LCDQ) Legends 2019 are East and West Coast designers Bunny Williams and Suzanne Rheinstein.

Both Williams and Rheinstein have four decades of experience sharing their ideas for gracious ways of living and design.

Rheinstein, Windsor Square, opened her antique furniture and one-of-a-kind decor shop, Hollyhock, at 214 N. Larchmont Blvd., in 1988, later moving to West Hollywood and then La Cienega. (The shop closed in 2018.)

Rheinstein and Williams will be honored at LCDQ’s opening party Tues., May 7 at 6 p.m. at the Fig & Olive, open to VIP registrations only.

This year’s event, “Legendary: Icons of Design,” is May 7 to 9, and features multiple locations and 50 designers. Events will be held in La Cienega Design Quarter shops, showrooms and galleries. Registration fee is $95.

Interior designers from around the country will transform windows of the 50 LCDQ locations, and design authors will speak on their books.

The programs celebrate design stars of yesteryear and will honor two Living Legends, Rheinstein and Williams. 

Bunny Williams will talk to Whitney Robinson of “Elle Decor” on Wed., May 8, and Suzanne Rheinstein will be joined by Jill Waage of “Traditional Home” on Thurs., May 9. 

Rheinstein’s best-selling book, “At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past,” (Rizzoli, 2010)  was followed by “Rooms for Living,” (Rizzoli, 2015).

Gardens are a passion of Rheinstein, who lives in one of Los Angeles’ oldest neighborhoods, in a home built in 1913. Charities that she supports include the Garden Conservancy and Friends of Robinson Gardens. She and Williams both are on the National Advisory Committee for The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville, an annual charity event raising funds to  improve the lives of children and families in the greater Nashville area. 

Rheinstein also supports LA Opera 90012, a program initiated by her late husband, Frederic Rheinstein, which every year provides free opera tickets to dozens of high school students who have entered an essay contest.

Rheinstein and her work have been featured in numerous lifestyle publications and blogs. She has been part of AD100 and the “Elle Decor” A-List. She recently received the Legacy Award from the Institute of Classical Architecture, Southern California, and the NYSID Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award.
