A Designer’s Best Kept Secret: Cedros Avenue Design District
David Alan Collection: my go-to for one-of-a-kind pieces that create intrigue in design
The soul of my work and where I connect most deeply with my passion is the design process. It’s what sets my property sales apart and affords me the opportunity to serve as an interior designer to clients across Southern California and beyond. What inspires my work? Meeting local artisans who create, find, and share treasures that become an integral asset of a home.
The David Alan Collection
If you are an interior designer in San Diego, you know Cedros Avenue is the gem of the city for unique design pieces - including those one-of-a-kind pieces by the David Alan Collection. You’ll find a gallery of modern organic wood furniture, rare antiques and artifacts, and custom wood slab tables located in beautiful Solana Beach. David Alan describes this best: “I am in truth, a quietly mad, global adventurer who looks for endless possibilities and beauty in life. I tell stories of the remarkable and talented people I meet, laugh, and play with. I live by my sense of ‘right energy,’ whether it is energy from objects, people, or places. I hunt for beauty and share all I can of that sweet essence which makes life so much more worth living.
What you’ll find:
- Dining room tables – slab, reclaimed wood, petrified wood
- Japanese antiques
- Primitive & folk art
- Studio carving & custom pieces
- Incredible accessories (including scarves I stock up on personally!)
