Jim Walrod is a self-taught designer and design consultant who's been dubbed "The ultimate design raconteur" by André Balazs. He started collecting furniture and accessories as a kid and eventually accumulated enough stuff to furnish his entire apartment as a replica of the 1943 Museum of Modern Art's "Good Design" exhibit. As a professional, Jim is considered an expert in the field of mid-century design and his projects have ranged from designing hotels like The Standard in LA and The Thompson LES in New York, to consulting on period furniture for Ang Lee's film, "The Ice Storm". Jim's career began in the 90's, when he co-owned the now defunct, Form & Function store with his partners, Jack Feldman and Fred Schneider of the B-52's. It was here where he met Mike D of the Beastie Boys, who entered the store in search of rare designer lamps. This encounter led to a friendship with Mike D, who referred to Jim as his "Furniture Pimp" in an issue of Rolling Stone, as well as a design job with Mike's art collecting mom, Hester, that would challenge Jim's concept of taste and change the way he approached design forever.
