Meet the Maker Kym Gold, founder of Style Union Home, and the ever growing ceramics team based in Los Angeles, CA. With decades of determination and passion for the creative process, Kym Gold applies what she has learned from her former businesses into Style Union Home.
Style Union Home offers unique, handmade ceramic place settings, bowls, mugs, sushi sets, sake sets, pitchers, cream and sugar sets, salt and pepper sets, pet bowls and ceramic snack “bags” made with an eye for style.
Kym is an identical triplet and says some of her motivation comes from her desire to stand out (literally) from her sisters. While in her teens, Kym took the continued ‘no’s’ until she found the one ‘yes' she knew would eventually come. She built her first business, on this ‘yes,” selling fashion damages on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and at nearby college campuses. Her new-found success enabled her to buy her first building in Santa Monica at the age of 20 (a deal she brokered herself)!
Kym co-founded True Religion® in 2002. Eleven years later she sold her shares for more than $800 million allowing her to take a break from the fashion industry. With an interest in real estate, she began flipping houses giving her an outlet for her creativity. While staging homes, Kym’s frustration for a lack of beautiful home decor details pushed her to make them herself, and Style Union Home was born.
Style Union Home is ceramic art through the lens of fashion. Using the “Gold standard” to ensure each process, material and team member is exceptional. “Small batch” and “artisanal” are not hollow search words – it’s the way the creative team actually works. Each step of their crafting process is meticulously thought out and originally executed by Gold herself. Every piece is lovingly contoured by the hands of a master ceramicist and each batch of clay and glaze is mixed by hand. No molds are ever used in the production of any Style Union Home piece.
Style Union Home is a company dedicated to the values of convergence, equality and the power of women, as demonstrated in their 5% In The Raw collection sales donation to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
