Buck Mason's Impeccably Cool Los Angeles Studio

Buck Mason is one of our favorite brands to wear. And really, what's not to like? The Los Angeles-based label makes handsome, high-quality pieces for fair prices that are built to last. They focus on the little details that make a big impact. Like the rounded shirttails on their slub cotton T-shirts or 12-month wash jeans made from a proprietary blend of Japanese stretch denim finished with burnished nickel hardware. But the brand's style doesn't stop with their clothes.

The company's downtown LA headquarters reflects the same design ethos. Working with interior designer Leanne Ford, the space is at once minimal and relaxed with touches of luxe embellishment. The space even incorporates Buck Mason's fabrics—natural colored denim makes for sleek curtains to keep out the midday sun. For Ford, it was about nailing those details—glossy black trim, a cool sofa with clean lines and some proper office chairs. "After much conversation, I finally convinced the guys to get these vintage Knoll chairs and they've never looked back," she says. "If I can give one tip to new businesses and offices, don't scrimp on the desk chairs—your back and your team will thank you." Herewith, a closer look inside and some pieces inspired by the stunningly cool studio.
