Los Angeles-based interior designer Michael Valles has announced the opening of a West Hollywood retail location for his design firm Interior Illusions early next year. The store will be the exclusive regional distributor of Curator Collection by Calvin Klein Home, which includes furniture, bedding, rugs, flatware, tabletop décor and more.

“Even with the economic situation, there is still a high demand for furniture and home goods that are classic, modern and luxurious," Michael said.

Valles currently operates Interior Illusions in West Hollywood, Santa Monica and Palm Springs. In December 2009, he opened I Squared in downtown Los Angeles catering to his loft-dwelling clientele with an appetite for locally available modern furniture and accessories. 

A grand opening of the store will be held in early 2011 with additional product categories and new collections becoming available in the new year as well.

Michael started his career as a consultant in the financial industry before opening his own retail/design firm in Los Angeles. During his life in Fresno, Michael and his mother, interior designer, Lottie Valles opened a small shop called Interior Illusions. In 2003, Mike relocated the shop to Southern California.
