A wall covering named Torn and Confused ($105 per roll) is designed to look like layers of peeling wallpaper.
The sculptural Wow & Flutter speaker system ($2,950) was inspired by a pile of discarded hi-fi components; it can be assembled in numerous configurations.
Los Angeles design became a worldwide force in the 1940s, when practitioners like Charles and Ray Eames created chairs and household objects that are still displayed in museums today. Now another pair of design visionaries has joined forces to launch the just-opened e-commerce shop Store L.A., which offers up wallpaper, furniture and pottery.
Store L.A. sells the ingenious Dishwasher Safe Coffee Table (pictured above, $425), with fiberglass trays that slide out of wood rails, as well as the playfully off-kilter Wonky chair ($1,050) made of beech wood and cotton webbing. We?re equally agog over the witty and beautiful wallpaper (from $95 a roll), hand-stamped with everything from falling leaves to peeling lace. It?s all the work of New Zealand-born Simon Storey of Anonymous Architects.
We?ve also been fans of Storey?s partner in the project, Tracy Wilkinson, since we first spotted her hanging earthenware in Atwater Village?s Potted. Now her ceramics are often ornamented with bits of weaving (from $50), and she?s branched out into intricate hand-tied cane lamp shades (from $900) and even a cotton tee with rolled sleeves ($82).
Store L.A.?s funky and graceful wares are the bellwether for a new age of made-in-L.A. creativity.
