Comedian, Collector & Designer
Everyone knows that Ellen Degeneres is funny. But not everyone knows that Ellen is one of L.A.’s biggest patrons of art and design—her homes, which have been, and continue to be, some of the city’s best (she’s also known for her ability to buy, redo, and then quickly sell real estate for a significant profit) are both exquisite and interesting, full of primitive African objects, Prouvés, Royeres, and everything in between. It’s no surprise that Ellen is taking all of this taste and channeling it into her own lifestyle brand, ED, which will debut in Spring 2015 (along with a coffee table book about her homes, and the homes of her frequent collaborators).
