Fashion and industrial-design duo Angélique Chmielewski and Stevenson Aung, who founded this home-design e-tailer in 2013, bring their polished array of housewares ($8–$436) to their first temporary shop. The store showcases products by primarily Japanese makers who use traditional materials and manufacturing processes to create goods for modern living. Highlights of the collection include TAjiKA scissors and shears ($42–$242), which are forged from steel and copper in Japan; Los Angeles–made Hedley & Bennett aprons ($50–$98), crafted from selvage denim,; and the Umbrella Shop handmade umbrellas ($60). Update your pad with Jicon porcelain pitchers ($100), Takahashi Kougei wooden dishes ($47–$68), and plywood-and-glass clocks ($120) with near-silent Seiko sweep movements.
