Meet Daniel Robles, Showroom Manager
Daniel manages all aspects of our popular Showroom Sale. His keen eye and experience curating antiques and vintage furniture and décor ensures that we’re brimming with fresh, interesting items at every monthly sale. A graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design, his training helps him blend multiple estates and varied styles into one beautifully staged Showroom. Daniel came to Hughes with extensive experience handling antique, vintage, and collectible furniture, décor and clothing. Most recently, he worked with 1933 Group, founders of the impeccably stylish Los Angeles bars (Bigfoot Lodge, Thirsty Crow, Sassafras, and Highland Park Bowl) known for their stunning vintage renovation projects. As creative director of his own mobile vintage boutique, he sold a curated collection of vintage clothing, Mid-Century art, kitschy décor, and high-end antiques out of a renovated vintage trailer. He also designed a vintage reconstruction men’s clothing line for his boutique, taking existing vintage garments and transforming them into contemporary pieces.
Daniel is pictured with a mixed media painting by Edward Kienholz (1927–1994), an American installation artist and assemblage sculptor. Keinholz was a central figure in the 1950s Los Angeles art scene centered around the Ferus Gallery, of which he was a co-founder. His work is held by the National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, & LACMA, among others. This early mixed media painting comes to us from the estate of a local artist who was a contemporary of Kienholz. For sale: $12,000
