Fabulous new work from Jared Frank of topsy design. You’ll remember his charming patio from this post but now he has cranked it up another notch. Love!
“Hadar Lorenzo wanted an annex to the men’s store, that could function as a stand alone shop. A place to try out new clothes, ideas, and designers before committing to carrying them at his other locations. It was important to both of us that the shop continued H Lorenzo’s long tradition of cutting edge design but that if also had its own style. Also, just as critical as the retail below, Hadar wanted an upstairs client lounge, where he could entertain clients and meet with peers over sake or espresso. Packing all this into such a narrow room, while maintaining a sense of lightness and freshness was my primary challenge.”

What is that amazing hanging chair? Great look all round Mr Frank.
Budgie, if they'd had me do the windows, I promise you'd know what's inside already.
Polo, the hanging leaf chair was designed by Rupert Oliver. Who now designes playgrounds for children. But if you track him down, he'll sell you one at a great price.
any more info on Rupert Oliver would be great (so I can track him down for a lounge as well!)
For Mr. Oliver, try emailing Lesley Knight <email@example.com>
Aaaah, thanks for posting! I know where this is! I walk past it regularly, and now I know what it looks like inside. Those windows on the mezzanine look across West Hollywood to all the way downtown. Fantastic bit of real estate/location in Los Angeles.
