An American Brand
Lounge22 is a modern American furniture brand created and led by Armen Sevada Gharabegian, a master of industrial and environmental design. Bucking the trend of mass-producing goods in China, each piece of Lounge22 furniture is designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles and is made to order. With meticulously high standards in production, a passion for innovation, and a playfulness that’s unmistakably “L.A.”, Lounge22 elevates the energy in any room and attracts the mind as much as the eye.
Lounge22 was founded in 2004 by Armen Sevada Gharabegian .

Lounge22 started designing and manufacturing innovative, high quality furniture in Los Angeles to fulfill this need for Gharabegian’s second company, Ethos Design. Soon after, because of the innovative design, its high quality and American manufacturing, Lounge22 gained popularity in the event and exhibit industries. Lounge22 expanded to four locations across the U.S. providing rental solutions in the cities of Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, and Austin.Lounge22 set a standard in the industry with its innovative products and high quality. Lounge22’s style, marketing, and service set an example for many companies from 2005 until 2010. In 2010, Lounge22 licensed its brand and its rental division to the Berkshire Hathaway Company, Cort. Since 2010, Lounge22 has designed and fabricated thousands of pieces of furniture for Cort’s event rental and exhibit division. It has also started to design and manufacture for Cort’s CFR division, which provides leasing solutions for customers around the country.Lounge22 continues to uphold its quality and its mission to design and produce American furniture that is built in Los Angeles.

“Over the years, many customers of Lounge22 expressed their wish to purchase our products for their home and office.”
“It has been my dream for many years to design and manufacture innovative, high quality furniture in the United States for the American consumer. We have had a long tradition of innovation in this country, and it was personally important for me to push the American product, built by American ingenuity, quality, and craftsmanship for both the American consumer and eventually the global market. I want to see products around the world with labels that say ‘Made in America’.”
