CALILA is a product design studio in Los Angeles. It is our journey in functional design and study of minimal aesthetic.
Pronounced (Cuh-lee-luh), our name is a manifestation of the love we have for both California (CALI) and L.A. Made in Los Angeles.
Simple + Functional = Beautiful

Our products were featured in conjunction with Time Out Los Angeles:
Finally, we are prominently carried at design focused museum stores such as:
When Cameron and Lindsey met, Cameron was a production manager in animation and visual effects and Lindsey was a Retail Manager and Buyer.
Cameron when to school at Wake Forest University and graduated with degrees is Business, Entrepreneurship, and Psychology.
Lindsey studied at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with degrees in Theatric Costume Design and Fashion Design.
When Lindsey suggested that there were products she was having trouble finding for her store, even after walking the most prominent wholesale shows in the U.S., the idea occurred to launch her own design studio. Cameron was eager to use his background in creative project management from film to launch the company and move closer to the early design process.
Their relationship developed into the organic design process that is the backbone of CALILA today. Their mutual appreciation for clean, minimal design and desires to solve problems and add functionality to their lives drove them to to the founding design principles of CALILA.
