CULVER CITY ADJACENT— French 50s-60s—a go-to for vintage furniture on Abbot Kinney—expanded to Culver City with its Galerie Sommerlath showroom over a year ago, and now has Le Depot at 4321 West Jefferson Avenue, an even bigger showroom space, open Saturdays from noon-5pm and by appointment. In regard to the re-do on its Venice space, per an email from the store: "Many of you have inquired about our original location on Abbot Kinney. We look forward to reopening this space early this summer and will keep you up to date." One gorgeous Danish credenza, please! [RackedWire]
DOWNTOWN—There may be a lot of lofts and developments, but downtown LA is still pretty bleak when it comes to retail. 43 Styles just opened on Monday on the 6th Street side of the SB Lofts per Angelenic. The boutique offers non-designer selections around $20-$25, and owner Victor Witold Motak told Angelenic that he hopes to carry up-and-coming designers and higher-price points possibly in the future. Saturday, April 5 will be a grand opening at 6pm. [Angelenic]
HOLLYWOOD— Lallure, which opened in Hollywood a few months ago, carries many labels from Tokyo, plus vintage, and actually stays opened late. From Lallure: "We are located just blocks from all the Hollywood hotspots, including Les Deux, S Bar, Parc and more... Fridays we are open until 2:30 am with a DJ spinning—so your night does not have to end when the bar closes!" Sloshy shopping, indeed. [Racked Inbox]
