maison21 is the “nom du internets” of christian may, a los angeles based interior and product designer. maison21 specializes in modern, eclectic, and layered, residential and commercial interiors with a philosophy of making each project unique by filtering our client’s history, personality, and needs, through our maison21 experience and aesthetic. we also offer a variety of maison21 designed products, including a wallpaper collaboration with black crow studios, a self-branded collection of geometric custom cowhide rugs, and more on the way…

in addition to interior and product design, christian is a lifetime creative artist, and his abstract paintings, drawings, and prints, adorn the walls of homes and businesses around the world.

last, christian is an experienced social media voice, starting his first blog “decorative but not serious” in 2007, back when dinosaurs roamed the geocities interwebs. christian’s unique ability to straddle the social media and design worlds with humor and real talk has made him an in-demand speaker and collaborator at the design industry’s largest events, including HPMKT, Las Vegas Market, LCDQ, and Dwell on Design, as well as smaller, private, corporate events.

christian lives in the historic miracle mile district of los angeles, with his beloved pets, richard, the giant mutant cat, and doris may, the tiny feral dingo dog. he likes his lighting dim, and his men bright.
