Established in May 2014 by co-founders Kim Rodosky, interior designer and mother of six, and Kim Johnson, director of business and retail operations, 503found is a Newport Beach showroom that sells art, furniture, lighting, and accessories. The loft-inspired space encompasses a curated collection of the latest home decor finds—including many one-of-a-kind finds—from Paris, New York and Los Angeles as well as art from local designers and artisans. 503found’s style is chic yet urban, appealing to a wide variety of design aesthetics, and offers a mix in vintage pieces with our own collaborated lines.
503found works directly with both established and just-discovered designers and artisans. The boutique strives to promote these local, small businesses by hosting in-house events and collaborations, spotlighting up-and-coming artists on their blog and giving back to the community.
“We are Newport Beach residents who work in this community to support our fellow designers and artisans. We love to collaborate and are open to all opportunities of connecting through great design,” said Rodosky. “We will constantly add new pieces to our collection that will be readily available in store and online.”
These fresh 503 “finds” include statement chandeliers, late 1800s art to contemporary sculptural art, antique pieces, as well as raw textiles and linens with which the team has created polished pillows and cushions—all of which were hand-selected by Rodosky straight from the Parisian design shows and flea markets.
Designer and artist compilations displayed at 503 Found include 1882 Ltd.’s Standard Ware and Crockery Bone China, London’s most refined and contemporary bone china brand; Julian Chichester’s furniture and home décor selections; Kim Salmela’s new textile collection; Zoe Pawlak’s recently introduced rugs inspired by her own paintings; sculptural barn style doors exclusively commissioned for the design house by Lucas Risé; and several custom furniture pieces that shape the store collection. The team blends these leading-edge styles with an assortment of well-known brands to create a thoughtfully edited collection of furniture and home accessories.
Additionally, 503 Found offers design consultation services and designer discounts in order to better serve customer needs.
