Companies[edit]

Hryb owns custom furniture and interior design company Style de Vie,[1] and the vintage steel furniture restoration company Twenty Gauge;[2] located inside the historical Helms Bakery[3] in Culver City, California.

Style de Vie is Hryb's creative outlet for interior design and fabrication custom modern furniture. In 2008, J.C. worked collaboratively with fellow French designer Christian Audigier[4] to design Audigier's flagship retail clothing store and furnishings for THE SAME GUY (retail store name)[5] in Los Angeles, CA.

J.C. marries his affinity for modern design with restoring/customizing vintage furniture pieces for Twenty Gauge. Twenty Gauge specializes in restoring and revitalizing vintage furnishings from the 1930s through '50s to give them new lives, albeit with a slightly modern twist.[6] J.C. says on reclaiming or upcycling vintage furniture, "I love its industrial look and the history, yet the lines are clean...and made of metal so it has a modern aspect."[6]
