Kelly Lamb is multi-media artist, whose work spans across many disciplines, including furniture design, interior design, and fine art. She designs and manufactures all of her work including high end furniture in Los Angeles. All of her ceramics are made by hand on site at the studio.
I reached out to Kelly last fall when I saw her work in person. Her work is consistently strong and unique, which makes it incredibly satisfying to look at and really fun to photograph.
Like her work, Kelly is elegant and has impeccable personal style.

Great coffee, and tasty, thoughtfully prepared food are what I get excited about when I go out. Besides the food, there is the space it is served in, which is often, sadly overlooked. But when it isn’t, and the design sensibility matches the vibe and intention of the food you’ve got this complete experience. I realize this is vague and pretentious statement… But still, you know what’s up when you walk into McDonald’s, yes?? It’s a clearly articulated experience.
Well at DINETTE there’s a sweet little vision happening. I absolutely love the chic Prussian Blue chosen to paint the exterior. It’s a tiny place, but the color draws you off the street and into the little take out window to order some treats. The interior is a small but kitchen. The menu for now, is homemade tarts, pizzas, small and perfect waffles, and coffee and tea that are all delicious.
I went to photograph the space and hang out with my friend Eric Pfleeger who did the branding work for DINETTE. Eric is good pals with owner Gareth Kantner, who also owns Cafe and Bar Stella, in Silver Lake.
Here’s the space.
