Take Two

A stylish Houston duo’s design inspirations range from modern classics to Roman ruins.

The lastest purchase for their home was Ligne Roset’s Ploum settee.

A recent trip to Italy to see architecture was a highlight.

The one piece of furniture they will always keep is a Le Corbusier LC-3 in tan.

Brittany’s favorite gift from Adam is a Noguchi coffee table for their first anniversary.

Adam and Brittany Branscum have transformed a potential war zone for some couples into a successful business. Their aesthetics clicked from the beginning: He’s an architect. She’s an interior designer. Both hail from Oklahoma and are OU grads. Together, they’re lifestyle entrepreneurs with a string of successful ventures in just seven short years of marriage, including homebuilding and furniture showrooms. “It was difficult finding furniture for the homes we were building,” says Brittany. “We thought it was a little crazy, but we love furniture so we did it.”

Last year, when French luxury manufacturer Ligne Roset (lignerosethouston.com) decided to relaunch in Houston after shuttering in 2004, the talented, 30-something pair was the natural choice to pilot the endeavor. They plunged right in, building out the new Kirby Drive showroom with an energetic and cutting-edge product line of glassware, lighting and furniture.
