About Olafson Creative: We are a husband-wife duo known formally as Michelle & Troy Murrah from Long Beach, CA. Our brand, Olafson Creative offers art, furniture, home décor, and custom design & fabrication (on a case by case basis). We incorporate Troy’s artwork, Michelle’s great ideas, and found imagery to offer an alternative to the mass-produced items already in the marketplace. Our hopes are that these pieces will whisk you away to another place and time.
Our goods are intended for everyday use, made of the most basic materials in their purest forms. Unafraid of combining very different styles (e.g. brutalist architecture with ornamental rococo...?), we are inspired by our other mission: to successfully combine the hill country blues sounds of Fred McDowell with the electronic minimalism of Kraftwerk (see our head designer Troy Murrah's musical project, Restavrant! here)... but that's another story for another day!
