The Red Futon is a small film/photo studio & safe space for fellow creatives of color based in Pasadena, CA.

The concept for the brand came about one night upon sitting in my living room with one of my closest friends. It was 3 AM and we were just sitting on The Red Futon; discussing life's trivialities, our creative goals and the future. In that moment, I felt so safe and respected. I aspire to create that same kind of atmosphere with The Red Futon. For artists; regardless of shape, gender, color, size, etc to enter a judgement-free zone and just create. No bullshit.
