Max Humphrey Featured Best of the West Designer

Meet the Best of the West…

We’re proud to introduce you to our hand-picked collection of designers that truly represent the “Best of the West”, which includes Portland-based designer Max Humphrey. Max is a self-described “low-key interior designer with a focus on creating interesting and unpretentious spaces that reflect the people that live and work in them.” His design philosophy is that every room should show signs of life; to that end, he encourages clients to surround themselves with things that they truly love and “not be too precious about any of it.” Having lived and worked in Los Angeles for the last fifteen years, this talented designer now brings his lived-in, layered, casual chic style to the Pacific Northwest–and we’re excited to share it with you! Read on for a sneak peek at what goes into Max’s signature style, his “must see” showrooms at Las Vegas Market, and more. Planning a trip to market this July? Meet Max in person and hear more from him and the rest of our Best of the West creatives on our REstyleSOURCE Best of the West design panel!

MH circleMax’s West Coast Style?

“I grew up on the East Coast, spent 15 years in Los Angeles and currently live in the Pacific Northwest, so my brand of West Coast style is all three of those areas mixed together with a big dose of Americana thrown in. I live in Portland, Oregon so to me, West Coast style has a focus on goods made by local craftspeople with respect to the area and environment in which they’re made. My West Coast style is a lived in, layered look and I think every room should show signs of life.”

“West Coast style to me is unfussy & organic, and comfortable first and foremost.”

Why Does He Love the Market? “Las Vegas Market is a great way to see products in person that I may only see online – and always great to meet and talk to new vendors and visiting designers and tastemakers.”

MH circleMax’s Advice for First Time Market Buyers?

“Go ahead and make a plan but don’t get too worried about sticking to it. Some of the best showrooms I’ve discovered over the years have been happy accidents.”

Favorite place to stay in Las Vegas? “I’m partial to the Mandarin Oriental.” Favorite place to dine out? “Any restaurant at the Wynn, because all of them offer veggie options.”
