The Art’s District shopping landscape got a whole lot more rustically rugged with the addition of Hammer and Spear. A vintage compilation of leather, wool and wood—Hammer and Spear is a place that feels half hunting lodge, half southern estate sale, and all completely original. HGTV’s Design on a Dime host Kristen Cunningham and her husband Scott Jarrell have curated finds from their own travels and also support local artists as well as those from their home state of West Virginia. And given that they are actually on site most of the time, they can give you a history of the product—perfect for the conversation that each piece will be starting.
A classic for more than a decade, Weego home is an alternative to the stark and minimalist designers that often dominate the L.A. landscape. Full of comfort, bright color and graphic patterns, the offerings are laid-back luxe, while still feeling modern and fresh. The Main Street store carries everything from large furniture to smaller accessories and textiles, many of which are locally made and eco-friendly. The pros at Weego are top-notch, and they offer a full interior design service at three different price points and a line of custom furniture for those who just can’t find what they want in retail.
Perfect the modern, Scandinavian look for everything in your home; from furniture, fine art, house wares and kitchen products to women and men’s clothing and knick-knacks for little ones. The stylish, e-commerce boutique turned brick-and-mortar features offerings from more than 60 Scandinavian designers with standouts including brass wire baskets, matte black stoneware, textiles featuring hand-drawn designs, and luxurious, abstract jewelry. Thanks to owners Holly and Per Hallberg who source all items from their annual trips to Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland, the shop is constantly refreshed with new and exciting finds.
In 2005, artsy power couple Andy Griffith and Rose Apocada made their design dreams a reality with their global marketplace A+R. Launching in a tiny shop in Silver Lake, the duo quickly outgrew the space as their collection of quirky, innovative, and international finds multiplied—they’ve since relocated to the Arts District’s ROW DTLA. They are true design curators who hand pick every piece—and will not let customs or distance stand in the way. Go here to score a three-dimensional folded fortune cookie stool, a battery operated copper beer foamer, or a whimsical swallow deconstructed wall clock.
Whether you’re tricking out your Malibu beach house or your Ojai ranch, Nathan Turner’s Melrose Avenue outpost is a destination for all things luxurious comfort. Plush throw pillows and exotic ottomans are mixed in with new and vintage items from all over the globe. A fourth generation Californian, Turner is firmly rooted in a Southern California look and feel and has designed for some of the biggest names in town. He’s also an avid foodie and cook, hosting lavish dinner parties right in his shop for his clients and friends.
No L.A. list is complete without resident design goddess Kelly Wearstler. With her loyal fans following her every high glam move, she is much more a global brand than a retail emporium. If you’ve been to any Viceroy from Anguilla to Santa Monica, you understand the scope and pageantry of her signature style, and the flagship never disappoints to be a museum of drama. She even brought back wallpaper into the high-end forefront. Although it’s worth heading down Melrose for that alone, the jewelry, lighting, furniture and art, offer oh-so-much more to experience.
Live your best midcentury-modern life by way of this vintage-furniture mecca, which feels way more like a wonderland than a warehouse. Between the ’60s couches, lamps, coffee tables, ceramics and flawlessw teak sideboards, desks, maps and wall art, one step inside and it’s hard to tell if you’re still in the current era. (Don’t worry—you are and smartphones still exist.)
Badia Design Inc. brings the exotic and intricate interiors of Morocco to North Hollywood with everything from handmade mosaic tiles and majestic rugs to handcrafted furnishings and home décor. A treasure trove of imported finds both traditional and contemporary, this one-of-a-kind enclave has been a favorite of savvy decorators and lauded interior designers alike for over 20 years. But this Vineland locale isn’t just for dressing up the home with a striking brass sconce or decorative pillow: Transform a wedding, movie set, party or private event with authentic Moroccan décor available for rent.
Housed in a 1930s auto garage, the heart of Rolling Greens lies past the exposed brick walls lined with bed and bath comforts, epicurean items (including a wide selection of gorgeous cookbooks), and home décor. That’s all before you get to the plants. With indoor and outdoor spaces filled with countless things botanical, you could spend hours perusing every orchid, vine, and rosebud—real and artificial. Bring your own vase to the Flower Bar and they will help you create a one of a kind arrangement, and possibly one that even that black thumb of yours can’t kill.
If you peruse the internet long enough, you will find poems inspired by Galerie Half—which is, we must imagine, one of the highest compliments to which any establishment can aspire. The bulk of the antiques it houses have a homey vibe that lends a friend-to-friend feel to any transaction. Though its pieces are mixed in style and era of origin—they range from the 1800s to the 1970s, with a sweet spot between 1930 and 1950—the space somehow does not feel eclectic so much as curated into one cohesive story.
