The coast of California is one of the primary inspirations for our designs. So you can imagine our excitement to tag along with Trevor and Maddie Gordon for the latest episode of Views West, where they graciously let us hop aboard their little clipper for a cruise along the waters of Santa Barbara.

As part of our ongoing series directed by Mikey DeTemple, we dive deep into the notions of home in California, taking a closer look at the sea-faring lives these two explorers lead together. Trevor is a born and bred Californian while Maddie is from Sussex, England, which provides an interesting (and international) perspective on life here in the Golden State. Along with being incredible talented artists and adventurers, they’re also masters of a minimalist rent-free lifestyle that so many of us wish we could lead.
