a+r

i've been thinking about a trip to LA lately so i've been poking around online shops i'd like to visit in person. a+r is one of my must-visit destinations and while browsing their collection i noticed some of my favorite pieces from portugal's bleach design. they used to be impossible to find in the states so i was psyched to see their work so readily available in e-commerce form. one of my favorite things about a+r's online shop is that you can search my material: cork, ceramic, glass, etc. it's a fun way to view pieces and see a material used in so many different ways. my favorites are above but you can view (and shop) their full collection right here. enjoy!

...and you must stop by "Show" on Vermont Street. www.showlifestyle.com

It would also be great to meet you while you're out West. We love your blog here in Los Angeles!
We really need a catalyst to strengthen the design/business community that is strong in NY, SF, and Philly.

Oh! You should definitely visit Tortoise on Abbot Kinney! (http://www.tortoiselife.com/) The shop is so tiny but every object is thoughtfully chosen. Abbot Kinney is a great street where you'll find other very unique shops, cafes, and of course Venice beach!

I just ordered and received the the "My Glass" Terrarium" from A+R last week. Could not believe how fast the shipping was—especially for such a hard to get item. It has fast become one of my favorite pieces to look at. Filled it some lovely cactus from Trader Joes.

Love the terrarium! That's great that you may be coming to LA. Yes, to echo Amanda's sentiments, let us know when you are coming and if you are up for a design get together! Also a couple more shops to check out one is Firefly also on Abbot Kinney and Realm Home in Chinatown and Giant Robot in Silverlake and mid LA.
