Shopping Los Angeles

Along with West Elm, CB2, and Ikea, actors Jayma Mays and Adam Jones visited a slew of local shops to personalize their Los Feliz abode featured in our June 2013 Furniture issue. “We don’t buy a lot of stuff, and it takes at least three trips to the store before making a final decision on something,” says Mays. “We had a budget, but we didn’t want to skimp on the things that would be used the most.” Here’s her guide to the best shopping in Los Angeles.

Design Shop We Love: The Future Perfect in SF

We recently had the chance to visit Williamsburg design shop, The Future Perfect's, newest west coast outpost in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco (check out our first report here!) and it certainly did not disappoint. Inside, a hearty mix of well-established, international, not-so-well-known, and local designers, such as Piet Hein Eek to Alfredo Häberli to Fort Standard, comely crowded the black and white walled small space.

Table of Contents: A Fresh Portland Design Boutique

Portland-based retailer Table of Contents hits all the right notes. A modern purveyor of objects and clothing from Rason Jens, Lostine, and Martino Gamper to Henrik Vibskov, Patrik Ervell, and Beatrice Valenzuela, respectively, Table of Contents opened late last year by two local designers, Joseph Magliaro and Shu Hung. Inside, the thoughtful, yet eclectic combination of glass, wood, plants, textile, and metal fill the shop and objects get arranged based on a theme, mainly to rally up the founders' varied interests. Can't make it out to 97209? Their online shop is always open 24/7.

Destination of the Week: Palm Springs

Palm Springs is one of our perennial favorite destinations for design; the region is positively riddled with midcentury modern architecture and vintage shops, and the natural landscape is breathtaking, too. We've covered the place frequently over the years, including visiting for Palm Springs Modernism Week in February. Here, a few of our favorite destinations in one of California's most glamorously time-stopped towns.

MUJI Makes a Move

MUJI, Japan’s legendary “brand-less brand,” is expanding its West Coast empire. With ultra-basic furniture, clothing, electronics, and more headed for San Jose, California in April, we decided to stop by the company’s flagship store in Tokyo to see the latest in self-effacing design. MUJI lovers be forewarned: the full MUJI experience can still be had only in Japan!

Palm Springs Modernism Week: The Cocktail Hour with Dwell

Mid-century modernism is a way of life in Palm Springs, California, and the community continually celebrates the look, feel, and style of the era. So when the Paul Kaplan Group and Dwell invited Modernism Week attendees to celebrate The Cocktail Hour last night, a crowd clad in mid-century garb showed up at The Fontenell. Completely restored to its mid-century glory, the estate was a family vacation home for the Max Factor family in the 1950s. Its courtyard and pool provide the perfect setting for a party. Cocktail in hand, party goers were treated to a fashion show hosted by Bill Miller of Palm Spring's vintage clothing destination Dejà Vu Vintage Finery. Models took to the stage dressed in cocktail attire of the '50s and elicited audible cries of dress envy. After the show, conversations centered on Modernism Week festivities: lectures attended, the upcoming 'it' parties, and which house tours are not to be missed.
