Cinquième Gauche is a full service interior design studio located in Los Angeles. Founder and Principal designer Laëtitia Wajnapel.
Born and raised in Paris, Laëtitia started her career as a journalist before moving to London looking for new adventures.
There, she launched her own space in the digital world, which she ran for over a decade. This was a multilayered creative endeavor including styling, design, photography and writing. It quickly gathered a large audience and many accolades in the press.
Storytelling has been a constant in Laëtitia’s career. She’s explored many different ways to share her vision of the world - her design practice is one of those. She also loves to observe people and listen to their stories. This translates to her design practice where she works following a human-first process, getting to know her clients’ idiosyncrasies and needs in order to create the best possible environment for them to thrive in.
When working on projects, she is always keen on preserving the historical character of the properties she designs while enhancing and modernizing their functionality. Spaces tell stories too, a designer’s job is to write them.
