How to Create a Photo Booth for A-List Interior Designers

At Legends in Los Angeles, Zio & Sons conceived and assembled a luxurious outdoor area where design mavens posed for photographers. Watch the video to see how it was made.

To create his eye-catching photo wall at the Legends design celebration in Los Angeles, Anthony Dargenzio of Zio & Sons sourced fine furnishings from stores in the surrounding La Cienega Design Quarter. Here, he explains how it all came together:

“Since the VIP photo wall and lounge was going to be outside — located in the back garden at the Lee Stanton Antiques showroom — I really wanted to bring the indoors out, for a luxe-meets-casual garden setting. As a backdrop, we used a natural linen painter’s cloth. Then we pulled products from some of our favorite 1stdibs vendors in the La Cienega Design Quarter.

We went to Lee Stanton Antiques for a few of the larger pieces, like the 18th century Italian columns, a French iron and marble bistro table and English wood étagère. We then paired it with the contemporary gray Milano chair from Downtown and anchored the set with a bronze, footed lamp from Remains.

The antique rugs were sourced at Woven, along with decorative accessories for the shelving unit from Dragonette and Hollyhock. To complete the look, we added a pop of blue with a cashmere throw from Hollywood at Home. Overall, the look was exactly what we were going for and a perfect mix of old and new.”
