Designer Paul Fortune has died.

Dear friends and famous clients recall the taste-maker’s extraordinary eye, memorable and indelible imprint on the city of Los Angeles.

TThe design world lost one of its most elegant, ingenious, and wickedly wry voices with the passing of Paul Fortune on June 14 at his home in Ojai, California. Fortune was an English gentleman and arbiter elegantiarum of the old school, always nattily attired, quick-witted, and effortlessly chic. His longtime residence in Los Angeles’s Laurel Canyon—which he shared with his friend, ceramist Christopher Guy Brock — was an epicenter of the beau monde for decades, a place where a rogues’ gallery of friends and luminaries from the worlds of fashion, film, food, and design dawdled over long, leisurely meals in a sublime setting that was the very definition of gracious living. For many designers, the Laurel Canyon home functioned as a kind of finishing school — every room, every piece of furniture and every subtle decorative gesture provided an object lesson in how to live a life of beauty, comfort, and inspiration.
