Stephen Kenn is one of those guys who was born to be a designer. He started his career in denim when he was just 20 years old. The company he founded with his friend got picked up at Fred Segal immediately. Years later, he moved into leather bags. Kenn sewed them by hand and sold them online. He went through close to 100 bags in his first few months—people just couldn’t get enough.
After selling the bag company, he tried his hand at furniture. Now Kenn counts Todd Snyder, Nick Wooster, and J. Crew’s Frank Muytjens as customers. In short, the man has a rare combination of good taste, internal drive, and technical skill.
What we’ve come to know and love of Stephen Kenn’s Inheritance furniture collection, we also share the same love for his Remanufactured Collection: This collection was created with the scrap military canvas leftover from their upholstery process, and accented with vintage military bag hardware and leather. Recycled and made into something new.
How it’s made
“We have always believed that how we make is just as important as what we make. This collection is made from recycled vintage military canvas and vintage hardware that had seen years of history before we remanufactured it into a new form. It is made by hand in Los Angeles. Here you will get to see some of the process and meet some of the people who help bring it to life.” – Stephen Kenn
Proudly manufactured in Los Angeles, California.
