Prior to opening the Dana John gallery, Dana Lance specialized in sensitive restorations
and the building of fine Los Angeles residences. One of his last restoration projects was
for William Sofield’s 1910 Laurel Canyon Craftsman house, originally owned by Mary Pickford
and Douglas Fairbanks. It was a natural aesthetic progression for Dana to shift his focus
toward the decorative arts. Since opening in 2005, Dana John has been a highly regarded
source for discerning interior designers, architects and collectors for a collection encompassing
a wide range of stylistic references, both found and contemporary, as well as meticulously
executed designs from the Dana John Studio collection.
