A fourth-generation Californian, Nathan Turner grew up in San Francisco bay area, surrounded by a large extended family. Deeply rooted in California heritage, He spent many weekends at the family ranch in Northern California, where they would ride horses, raise cattle and cook scrumptious meals. Indeed, home is where Nathan’s taste for adventure was born, and something he expresses through his travels and eclectic lifestyle.
Nathan attended St. Mary’s College of California where he graduated with a degree in business. He then lived abroad in France and Italy, where he studied the area’s language, art history, and honed his culinary skills.
Upon moving to Los Angeles, Nathan successfully merged his greatest passions - design, travel and food - into his eponymous shop. Located on North Almont Drive in Los Angeles, Nathan’s store has become an expression of his years traveling, a faithful source for the country’s leading interior designers, as well as some of the most stylish individuals from coast to coast. An avid cook, Nathan equipped his store with a full kitchen so that he could host intimate dinners and parties on site.
Nathan’s parties, products, and designs have been featured in major national and regional publications including Domino, Vogue Living, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Food & Wine, and C Magazine.
In 2008 Nathan launched the Nathan Turner for Elite Leather collection of upholstered furniture.
