COUP DE COEUR

Finding new contemporary furniture in Los Angeles has gotten a lot easier and more fun over the past decade or so. Yet, when searching for the more unique and refined but unpretentious modern furnishings for a new project, I invariably find myself drawn to products from places a lot further afar than the handful of local stores I like.

My European sensibility usually has me stop in Brooklyn first, before inevitably traveling electronically to a design studio in London, checking out a cool collection of modular casegoods from Spain, or pining for the right client/project when discovering an amazing new line of plumbing fixtures from Italy. This is when not buying a lamp from an obscure lighting company in Argentina, by far the best fit for the dining room of a recent remodel in Cheviot Hills.

Here are some of this month’s ‘coup de coeur’, i.e. a few of my favorite finds that I came across while furniture scouting for up and coming projects.
