Mei Xu, Creator and CEO of Chesapeake Bay Candle and Blissliving Home

In the early 1990s, Mei Xu noticed that the bright, happy colors in fashion were not being reflected in home lifestyle products. She knew that “if people enjoyed dressing in cheerful colors and stylish, modern designs…why wouldn’t they want similar styles for their homes?”

She was right! And a true pioneer in the market with her Chesapeake Bay Candle Company Blissliving Home lifestyle collections. Her savvy intuition and keen eye for global design have helped both companies grow in popularity and prominence.

Jay Jeffers has been on our editor’s radar since 2004 when she named him a “Design Notable” in California Home & Design magazine. “I was asked to select and write about California designers who have assumed leadership roles and are changing the face of design,” says Jodi Murphy. “While researching for the article, I discovered Jay’s work, and I knew then that he was destined to become legend.”

The design blogosphere certainly agrees—do a search in DecorMetro.com, and you’ll find his work is the subject of regular posts. The design industry is also in accord, seeking him out for events, showhouses, and panel discussions. But most important, his clients love him because his rooms are never short of spectacular and he and his team make the process fun.

His design studio, Jeffers Design Group, just marked its tenth year, and what’s so amazing is that the portfolio of his work is so timeless and spirited. Every project has its own individuality, yet each shares a smart balance of refinement and sense of humor. “Throughout the last decade, Jay has left a trail of beauty and inspiration for us to follow,” says Murphy, “And I’m even more convinced he’ll continue to lead the way for decades to come.”
