Los Angeles-based Amadi Carpets has produced hand-knotted carpets for three generations. Here, one of their carpets in an interior designed by Commune Design.
Quality blankets and yard goods in cotton and wool are produced in the Amana Woolen Mill in Iowa, which dates to 1857.
A darling of glossy magazine editors, Commune Design is a collective of interior designers, architects and graphic designers whose clients range from Ace Hotels to the Gap. Among their hand-crafted home accessories are ceramic bird houses, a collaboration with Los Angeles-based ceramicist Heather Levine, and stained glass lanterns crafted by Los Angeles artist Steve Halterman.
Cincinnati-based purveyors of accessories for kitchen, camping and fireplace, Jacob Bromwell dates back to 1819. Items such as this anodized aluminum colander come with a lifetime guarantee.
Shelter Half's inviting, open-plan retail environment features walls hung with large-format photographs, including selections by legendary surf photographer LeRoy Grannis, from West Hollywood's M + B Gallery.
Who hasn't had the dream of moving into a character-filled loft? Now you can indulge that fantasy--if only during business hours--at Shelter Half, a new pop-up home store on La Brea.
Upon walking into the 4,200-square-foot space, you're struck by its merchandising creativity: Trunks spill over with soft goods, old-fashioned clothes-drying racks support stained-glass lanterns ($600) and ceramic bird houses ($250) from Commune Design and walls hold an entrancing collage of pop culture images.
Shelter Half is a collaboration between execs from eco-contemporary Environment Furniture and a host of designers and manufacturers who make their products in the United States. Its range of objects is wide: Besides sectionals from Environment Furniture, there are vintage carpets from Amadi (from $2,800), cooking and baking gear from America's oldest (est. 1819) housewares company Jacob Bromwell (from $16), and snuggly wool blankets ($110) from Amana Woolen Mills.
There is even super-soft unisex apparel from Save Khaki to knock around the house, including pajama pants ($50) we'll be wearing 24-7. Now if we can only convince Shelter Half to let us move in when the shop closes at the end of February, we'll be golden.
