Edmon’s Unique Furniture and Edmon’s Stone Gallery was established in Los Angeles in 1978. However, the story of the master craftsman, Edmon Simonian, and his family tradition was started back in Armenia in 1890 by Edmon’s greatgrandfather. The family legacy was moved to the United States by Edmon in 1976. As a child, Edmon Simonian started practicing hand carving with his father and grandfather using many heavy duty woodcarving tools. Later in his youth, Edmon spent time in Italy and studied the grand architecture of the Renaissance, which he later incorporated in his work. Edmon moved to the United States and set up a furniture making shop in the small Hollywood apartment he shared with his wife and daughter. He opened his own store on Melrose Avenue in 1978 with his saved money and often had to build furniture on the sidewalk because he did not have enough room inside. Today, that venture has grown into a block long storefront for two companion firms, Edmon’s Unique Furniture and Edmon’s Stone Gallery. Edmon’s reputation was built by creating the most laborious reproduction furniture, carved panel rooms, fireplaces, mantels, overmantels, etc., which decorate some of the finest homes today.
