Shopping La Cienega: L.A.'s Design Quarter

Todd Romano's New York showroom has long been a designer favorite.  In 2010 Romano launched his LA outpost which is full of statement furniture, art and unique accessories.
Every time I visit L.A., I can’t wait to hit La Cienega. This sunny street of antique dealers, workshops, and showrooms is full of unique finds for my clients back East. Many of the shops have courtyards in the front or gardens in the back, which is a fun contrast to Manhattan shopping. La Cienega has too many sources to mention but here are a few highlights not to be missed!

Kristen Buckingham is the exclusive retailer of her private label collection of beautifully made upholstery.  She also designs unique lamp shades and has an array of chic vintage lighting.

Lee Stanton has handsome European antiques and endless interesting accessories.  I will definitely come here the next time I am arranging a bookshelf.

Designer Suzanne Rheinstein's Hollyhock offers livable, beautiful pieces which, like her interiors, remind me of Rheinstein's native New Orleans.
