Dreamcatchers ($300 to $450) have been making a resurgence in home decoration since their popularity in the 1970s.
In the era of the chain store, we?re happy to find a spot for unique Golden State gifts: the new General Store, which has just opened a shop in Venice selling Cali-made housewares.
Most everything in the shop is what we?d make if we could shuck our responsibilities and devote ourselves to full-time handiwork. For instance, we?re coveting this lamp by San Francisco-based artisan Andrew Berg, which is basically an exposed bulb charmingly screwed into a block of wood ($200). We also love designer Kelly Lamb?s ceramic hanging planters ($95)--the shapes are derived from the works of ?70s design guru Buckminster Fuller--and handsome cutting boards ($85 to $160) courtesy of San Francisco woodworker Luke Bartels.
The Venice location (there?s also a San Fran sister shop) boasts a Marin County-meets-Topanga Canyon aesthetic, with a low central table flanked by triangular-shaped wall shelves displaying pottery and a rack of carefully curated vintage clothes (including a Joni Mitchell-esque striped caftan). The dressing room, meanwhile, is set off with a groovy indigo drape from Laurel Canyon studio Lookout & Wonderland.
General Store, 1801 Lincoln Blvd., Venice; 310-751-6393 or shop-generalstore.com
