My list of favorites, in no particular order
A must see pop up. They define vintage collective. The assortment is vast but thoughtfully curated to compliment newer elements. They have a beautifully merchandised showroom with an outdoor space that is peaceful, quiet and gets just the right amount of sunlight. They also have the cutest pup in all the land holding the fort down. His name is Eddie and you can't miss him!
The most breathtaking showroom we walked through. The ceilings were easily 20'+ with skylights positioned every few feet, unreal steel doors (also 20'+) which all opened into gardens that could easily serve as a meditation sanctuary. The careful selection of one of a kind product throughout the showroom was injected in all the right nooks & crannies to give you a treasure hunt feel. Guys, they had a coy pond at the entry, I mean... that just takes things to a whole new level.
These guys freaking rock. Since meeting them, I've placed 3 orders and I'm not stopping anytime soon! The space is inside a well-lit, beautiful loft. Exposed joists, concrete floors and carefully curated vignettes to give you the lifestyle component of shopping for the home. They use sustainably grown/harvested woods for all their furniture, and several of their fabrics are eco-conscience. Everything is also locally sourced (material wise) and locally fabricated in the heart of DTLA.
These guys are what we call distinguished sophistication. Every single drawer, door, cabinet had something special. They use earthquake proof mechanics so nothing inside your cabinets shake. While I know this isn't a need on the east coast, it's definitely a definable highlight since we're starting to pick up business on the west coast.
This guy is legit the coolest. From his welcoming, loving personality to his unbelievable collection inside his HOME! Stephen has a way of making you feel like you're not just buying a piece of furniture, you're collecting a moment in history. Most of his pieces use WW2 Military upholstery fabrics, and vintage military hardware. Everything is made in LA, with love. No joke, you can feel it when you sit or place your cup down on a piece of furniture. We were beside ourselves when we found out he runs the BDCC (Back Door Coffee/Cocktail/Cinema Club). He and his amazing wife have come up with a way to bring community and conversation to his space every month.
An amazing husband and wife team in the heart of DTLA. These guys have an unreal collection of hand picked objects and furniture, vintage and new. By the way these guys are incredibly thoughtful and organized in how they run their operation. We just placed our first order with them and could not be happier with the communication process. They have everything from beds to Japanese waffle towels and really dope speakers that don't look like speakers.
We stumbled into this tiny showroom on Melrose. It has so much to offer! Elizabeth has her own farm in Kansas with tons and tons of adorable sheep! She uses the wool from her own sheep for her reserve collection. It’s a small assortment due to sustainability, which we can appreciate.
These guys are simply the best. Their showroom and website are absolutely beautiful. Their motto makes you feel wholesome “wherever i lay my rug, that’s my home.” I work with them in NYC but couldn’t help but check out their LA digs. The attention and care to detail is unsurpassed. They have an amazing array of product. From Kilim’s, to vintage Turkish, flat weaves, Mongolian cashmere and alpaca boucle. We placed 2 orders with them since our LA trip and it doesn’t look like it’ll be slowing down.
I’ve always been a huge fan of their minimalist clothing aesthetic. When we saw they had a furniture line in advance of our trip, we immediately booked an appointment and boy are we happy we did. J.P is quintessential California cool. His clean lines and tailored color palette definitely falls in line with our personal aesthetic. This was one of those places we checked out to hone in on our style. Plus, we have a lot of outdoor projects in 2018 and these guys are an authority when it comes to outdoor furnishings.
