Maria Sharapova attended the grand opening of the Rove Concepts showroom in Melrose Place, Los Angeles, on Monday, September 18.

Sharapova also celebrated the two-year anniversary of her furniture line 'The Maria Collection' in collaboration with the modern and mid-century-inspired furniture retailer.

Sharapova, who retired from professional tennis in 2020, has been pursuing her passion for design and architecture since. She launched The Maria Collection in 2021, exclusively designed by her and featuring a range of elegant and minimalist pieces for living spaces.

The collection includes sofas, benches, tables, lamps, rugs, and more, all made with natural materials and organic textures.

In 2021, the 36-year-old shared her inspiration and vision behind her designs, which reflect her love for Japanese architecture and simplistic silhouettes that radiate warmth. She said (via Architectural Digest magazine):

"I wanted to make sure that all the pieces work as extensions of people’s lives — pieces that complement the things they already live with. It was important that the collection look and feel as beautiful today as it will in five or ten years."

Rove Concepts' official Instagram page posted a few pictures from the event on Monday, September 18. In the pictures, Sharapova can be seen interacting with the guests and posing for the cameras. She looked stunning in a black pantsuit and white heels.
