Beyond the West (BTW) was founded in 2020 by Chris Sheffield and Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli in the light-filled landscape of Venice Beach. Their creative practice melds shared pleasures (the feel of a well constructed leather jacket on their shoulders, just the right amount of foam on the lip of a cortado, morning paddle outs at Surfrider Beach, the perfect playlist, the first sip of Sangiovese on a Friday afternoon) with their complementary aesthetic in design, art, vision and style. With a combined professional design prowess spanning decades of experience, Beyond the West focuses on the feels as much as the function, with serious sincerity and heartfelt refinement.
