It is always inspiring to see new design showrooms pop up in the Los Angeles area. It’s reassuring to witness the rebirth of some of the vacant spaces here in West Hollywood, a top Design Mecca of the world! There have been two in particular that have opened up this year that I am thoroughly enjoying, Antonio’s Bella Casa and Galerie XX.
Benjamin Storck, of LA’s Modern One gallery, has opened a new showroom in the La Cienega Design Quarter, Galerie XX. The new store specializes in important European and American 20th Century decorative arts by noted designers George Nakashima, Samuel Marx, William Haines, and many others. It is the perfect place to find rare and unique pieces.
Antonio’s Bella Casa has been a prominent Italian antique resource in Newport Beach for the past ten years, and recently expanded by opening a showroom on La Cienega Blvd. Walking into this exquisite shop takes you to the streets of Italy, blending all of the elements of European living with the elegant flair of the Italians. See for yourself, and don’t forget that inspiration is always at your fingertips!
