Meet the Creator

LAUN is a Los Angeles based design company that specializes in locally-made,
contemporary outdoor furniture. Founded in 2017, LAUN is directed by Rachel Bullock and
Molly Purnell, two designers with backgrounds in architecture, woodworking and metal
fabrication.
Rachel and Molly met while working toward their Masters of Architecture at the University
of Texas at Austin and moved to LA shortly thereafter. While working in architecture and
branding, they found themselves discussing the lack of distinct, sophisticated outdoor
furniture options. Taking matters (literally) into their own hands, they learned to weld and
spent the year building prototypes and refining LAUN’s inaugural collection.
LAUN’s aesthetic draws from LA’s rich history of marrying adventurous design and skilled
manufacturing. With a nod to the region’s wide ranging stylistic past, LAUN counts
everything from Hollywood Regency to the Victorian mansions of Angeleno Heights as
influences. At home indoors or out, LAUN is committed to attention to detail in both form
and material.
