About Light and Dwell

eavily influenced by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, Light and Dwell was built on the emphasis of quality over quantity and creating spaces that are both innovative and timeless while remaining whole-heartedly home. The brand was founded in Oregon in 2016 by Co-Founders Molly Kidd and Aymee Kuhlman and was named by Architectural Digest as a New American Voice in 2023 .

Light and Dwell Chief Creative and Principal designer, Molly Kidd has a design ethos of old-age European culture and the signature L&D aesthetic is highly influenced by that same elevated ease and warm refinement. Molly uses six main styles that correlate with their clients’ personality and livability: Cottage Tudor, Mountain Ranch,European, Earthy Organic, Modern and Traditional. Light and Dwell’s projects are design-forward reaching a-list celebrity clients with the location driving the design from their homeland, Oregon to California, Texas, Utah, Washington, Tennessee and more throughout the nation.

As a leader in interiors, we feel committed to being leaders in sustainability. Part of our design promise is to mix 50% well-loved vintage pieces with custom made products, increasing the life of already-made materials and supporting artisanal makers. Our initiative stems from localism as we source and antique in the homeland of each of our projects. If we have a project in Austin, TX, a lot of what you'll see is from that town. Each antique element tells a story and gives the allure that these heirlooms have been passed down generation to generation. This also ensures that each of our clients have one-of-a-kind homes.

With craftsmanship top of mind, Light and Dwell has taken on a new venture, The Light and Dwell Shop. Their shop launched in Fall 2022 and consists of one-of-a-kind foundational furniture pieces that are hand-crafted to last a lifetime. After many years of creating custom pieces for their clients, visiting inspirational places, and a growing desire to create a sensible and sustainable home collection, they plan to expand the line throughout the year. As Principal Designer, Molly takes a whole-hearted approach to each design, offering a fresh perspective on old age classics.
