Paul László (1900 – 1993) was a Hungarian-born modern architect and interior designer who built his reputation while designing interiors for houses, but in the 1960s, largely shifted his focus to the design of retail and commercial interiors. László completed his education in Vienna before moving to Stuttgart, where he rapidly established himself as a prominent designer. He then established an office in Beverly Hills, where he was popular with the wealthy political and acting elite, including Ronald Reagan, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, and the Vanderbilt’s. His opulent but never over stated designs were executed with impeccable taste. He would design all aspects including furniture, fabrics, drapes, rugs, lamps, and other fixtures.

In 1948, László joined with George Nelson, Charles Eames and Isamu Noguchi to design for the Herman Miller company. The furniture lines presented by Herman Miller from 1948 have been called the most influential groups of furniture ever manufactured. Time magazine (August 18, 1952) described him as “the Millionaire’s Architect”. He had an ability to combine colours which might seem irreconcilable, yet when seen as a whole, were incredibly warm and beautiful. It was this use of colour along with the large-scale but gentle and flowing lines to his designs and the integration of an entire project which made his work memorable. His designs were uniformly simple, but never simplistic. His work is occasionally displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and is frequently seen in national and international retrospectives on 20th-century design.
