...with a nearly life-long friendship between two girls who met on the first day of seventh grade. Laura Kalur and Heidi Brueggeman attended The Andrews School just east of Cleveland, Ohio. Decades of "life" had taken them to opposite coasts, and seemingly opposite careers.
Laura became a medical malpractice attorney in Portland, Oregon. Heidi settled in Newport, Rhode Island and designed a line of jewelry called "Sugar". And then fate stepped in with its twists and turns - plus a dose of generosity, trust and creativity - oh, and a little jaunt to India. Our present place in the story finds lifelong friends living in the same coastal town, Beaufort, South Carolina.

Our name, LA PLAGE, is French for "the beach". Where the water meets sand and sky, it is one place we are allowed to relax, meditate, indulge and float away. The effortless lifestyle of four-season beach living is our muse.
At LA PLAGE we are happy to have wonderful relationships with our counterparts in India. Heidi travels to Delhi and Jaipur annually to work on the collections, immersed in the ancient aesthetics and color of a profoundly beautiful culture.
