Over 400 guests from art, design, and style gathered at the Goldwyn House in Los Angeles yesterday, Nov. 3, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Cultured. Upon entering the newest property in The Future Perfect’s repertoire, attendees were greeted by a custom floral wall designed by Bia Blooms, which served not only as a photo opportunity but also an ornate marker of the occasion. The evening reunited featured contributors, collectors, young artists, and friends of the magazine from the past including Taylour Paige, Ron Finley, Ashley Benson, Logan Lerman, Nick Kroll, Zoë Blue M, Gerard Bush, Analuisa Corrigan, Michael Bailey-Gates, Lily Kwong, Charlie Grant, Clifford Prince King, and more.
The Goldwyn House, which doubles as a concept gallery, was the ideal setting for the celebratory occasion. Built in 1916 by architect Arthur S. Heineman, the historic Hollywood Hills home was re-seen by The Future Perfect founder David Alhadeff and his team as a residential space as well as a liveable, shoppable hybrid. Inside, the house features an impressive collection that contains balloon-inspired furniture by Seungjin Yang, disco lounge chairs by Rachel Shillander, and the Hand Chandelier and Nalgona Chair by Chris Wolston.
Wandering through the Goldwyn House’s ground floor gallery spaces, the excitement in the air was palpable. Touring the works, guests enjoyed cannabis-infused Little Strong Drinks and joints by Pure Beauty, a female and minority-owned sustainable marijuana brand. An edible mushroom lamp installation by Verónica González and Elena Petrossian of Ananas Ananas provided awe-inspiring bites as drink stands stationed across the property with Agua Mágica Mezcal margaritas, Reina del Toro sparkling grand cuvee, Scotty Boy Wines, Ghia, Liquid Death, and Calidad Beer complimented the cuisine. In the sculpture garden afterward, DJ Ross One commanded the tunes as sculptures by Dan John Anderson enjoyed the fun from the side-lines. The evening ended poolside, where popsicles by August Novelties provided a much-needed cooling-down from the dancefloor even despite the evening’s crisp early November air.
