High Five Ten 10
Love mid century design? Tired of seeing the same pieces over and over in images of modern interiors? Here's an alternative to the usual suspects, Silverlake's Ten10 design.
Ten 10 is a tiny independent store in LA (that until recently I had never noticed; they're right next to Lamill Coffee) who design hand crafted, totally customizable sofas and coffee tables based on mid century California designs. Even better is that they build everything in Southern California. Choose your fabrics, choose your wood and know you're getting a solid product built to your specifications.
Also, if you stop by the showroom you can find tons of works by mid century sculptor, Stan Bitters for inside or outside the house.
It's worth noting too that the couple that own the company are really down to Earth and friendly which, when dealing with high design, is not always a given.
