Two best friends
who once scored identically on Meyers Briggs, after taking their time, fell in love, found themselves at too many estate sales, and started a business.
Jonathan, a serial bibliophile, occasionally borrows succulent clippings from public places, and hunts incessantly for treasures. He's always starting a new collection. Past collections include: African pipes, vintage darts, arrowheads, 18th century religious books, antique keys, weird little painted animals figurines from Mexico, Civil War era maps, old French lighters. He’s particularly obsessed with Rodin sculptures, Anne Sexton poetry, and Hans Wegner chairs.
Jess, who proudly adds a half inch when describing her height, can carry nearly fifty times her weight using her curly-haired superpowers. She mostly appreciates Jonathan’s addiction to finding treasures amidst junk, and masterfully transforms and curates those treasures, while creating some of her own on the pottery wheel. If you're ever awake at 6AM on a Thursday, you'll most likely find her at the flower market in downtown LA.
In late 2016, the original Taylor + Taylor doubled, adding identical twin boys. Whit Joseph is a minute older than his brother, Corwin East (who mostly goes by Cor). Jonathan and Jess have discovered that two toddlers is a lot of toddlers, tasteful design relating to young children requires serious work, and parenting is pure bliss (except for all the times it isn't). Having the word Taylor in the company name four times seems a bit much, so for now, Taylor + Taylor will keep its name unchanged.
Together, Jess and Jonathan are Taylor + Taylor, a design company birthed to collect, transform, and celebrate.
