La Jolla’s snazziest showroom yet

The geometrical art deco pixel cabinet by Boca do Lobo combines silver leaf, gold leaf, and 10 different types of wood and mirrors. The Portuguese furniture company is available exclusively through Esteban Interiors.

The designers behind Esteban Interiors clearly do not dream in black-and-white. The dapper newlyweds, Esteban Lopez and James A. Niebling, recently refreshed their Girard Avenue design studio in La Jolla as the ultimate homage to their handsome glamour aesthetic. “Think mixed eras with modern touches for understated chic,” says Lopez.

In addition to sourcing top local brands (MOS My Own Space, David Alan Collection, Tuo Sogno), they globe-trot for exclusive and va-va-voom collections from the likes of Boca do Lobo, Brabbu, Koket and Delightfull. And we can’t forget the duo’s longtime love affair with vignettes of colored glass. “Infusing a room with pops of color creates much needed tension in a sea of calm,” says Lopez. Dreamy.
