Nickey Kehoe's new retail location
We’re suckers for rooms designed by Nickey Kehoe. The firm, consisting of Los Angeles-based designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe, has been on our radar ever since we saw its work in the home of actor Mark Ruffalo and in the pages of the late, great Domino magazine.
Now we’re getting the chance to take the pair’s sensibility home via the newly opened and larger location of their retail shop, now in the Beverly Design District. Two lofty showrooms front the duo’s work space, and the whole store is filled with great vintage finds and original furniture.
The bedroom tableau, for instance, includes supersoft cotton and linen herringbone blankets ($225 to $450) made by Brahms Mount, an historic mill in Maine. On another wall, a shelf holds colorful doormats ($65 to $90) woven from recycled marine float ropes (taken out of commission to avoid ensnaring whales). The shop endeavors to stock mostly American-made products--and staff members are happy to share the stories behind them with shoppers.
Giftable items include rustic Philadelphia-made jewelry (from $80), sophisticated Astier de Villatte incense ($30) and groovy dotted dishes (from $85). Plus, we’re happy to report that the purse-sized Kaweco roller-ball pens ($22) do indeed live up to their beloved rep.
