Chris Salay

Chris started his career as a furniture designer and soon founded Forma Design Build, which specialized in designing and building custom spaces with minimal impact to the environment.  All cabinetry and furniture was built by hand and sourced locally. His client base grew and eventually he opened a kitchen and bath showroom in Silverlake, CA.  

While restoring the Austrian House by Raphael Soriano, he became focused on architectural design.  Researching original details and maintaining the architectural integrity of the house are the foundation of Chris' work as a designer.  

Chris Salay has worked as a designer for the past 15 years and specializes in restoring architectural homes.  His interiors are thoughtfully updated and do not change the original intent or integrity of the original design.  All furnishings are hand selected to enhance the period of the house while being careful not to create a time capsule.  

Chris lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
