Proem Studio is a Los Angeles-based interior design studio founded in 2017 by Ashley Drost and Marie Trohman. The studio translates Ashley and Marie’s respective backgrounds in styling, art and set design into residential, commercial and hospitality projects in Los Angeles and New York. Proem approaches all of their projects as the beginning of a new story for each client, the “proem” of a book, the introduction to a new chapter. While striving to create fresh, timeless spaces that improve with age, the duo also wants to create design that is approachable, functional and highly personalized. A commitment to detail, quality products, support of local makers and the use of vintage finds takes that aesthetic a long way. Today Ashley and Marie are joining us for Friday Five!
