Just like fashion, home décor trends are constantly changing. And just like your wardrobe, your home may need an occasional update to keep it looking fresh and inviting. No one knows this better than the art and design specialists at HStudio by Shlomi Haziza.
Founded by artist Shlomi Haziza, HStudio is a unique art studio and furniture manufacturer specializing in handmade, custom designs. To use another fashion comparison, in a world filled with generic furniture that’s off the rack, HStudio offers a collection that is strictly couture.
Located just minutes from Toluca Lake, on the border of Sun Valley and North Hollywood, HStudio has been creating custom art, home décor, and furniture for nearly twenty years. Chances are, if you own Lucite art or furniture, HStudio created it. They also offer an extensive selection of upholstered furniture, tables and accessories for every room in your home.
When it’s time to give your home a facelift, the experts at HStudio offer these tips for revitalizing your space and adding personal style, without breaking the bank:
Recycle with Re-upholstery
“While that sofa in your living room may look like it’s seen better days, if the frame has a good shape, you’d be amazed how it can be transformed with fresh cushions and upholstery. We have a large library of fabrics to choose from and our re-upholstery clients really enjoy the process of selecting a custom fabric that’s right for them,” said Ellen McAlister, HStudio’s creative director.
Bold Accents Add Character
The designers at HStudio also recommend updating the accessories, art, and accents in your home with personalized items that make a statement.
“Don’t be afraid of color! Small accents with bright colors create visual interest and can add a lot to a room,” McAlister said. “Try adding brightly colored pillows, candleholders, or sculptures to create a more unique space.”
Refresh Your Favorites
“We stand by every item we make and expect it to last for a lifetime, so we offer a service to refresh or refurbish any Lucite artwork we’ve ever made. We can bring them back to life,” McAlister said.
HStudio also offers an exclusive line of cleaners and polish to help maintain and restore all kinds of Lucite and plastics.
Create Custom Looks
In addition to updating furniture, HStudio has hundreds of art and furniture styles available in their 30,000 square foot design studio and showroom. And unlike many furniture stores, custom work is their specialty.
“We use a wide range of materials including Lucite, metal, wood, fabrics, stone, and more,” McAlister said. “Since our designs are made to order, we are able to offer nearly infinite custom options.”
“The fall is a great time to update your home,” McAlister said. “As the weather changes it’s important to make small changes that reflect the changes in season, like adding cozy rugs and lighting. It’s also a great time to get a jump start on refreshing your home before hosting holiday guests and parties.”
The HStudio Showroom/Haziza Gallery is located at 8421 Lankershim Blvd. in Sun Valley.
