Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

The Office Stylist is a website based on the idea that we should live well at work. In addition to offering readers daily tips on office style, fashion, life and travel, editor and TV personality Sayeh Pezeshki provides office styling services, consulting and personal shopping for private and corporate clients. We turned to her to find out about her favorite shop.
"Though it's not tucked away in a corner, I'm surprised that most Angelenos don't know about Room Service. I'm quite obsessed with all the pieces from their amazing store and the great thing is they do custom furniture too. I love that their merchandise is modern with a dash of glamour, pieces you can't find at any other furniture store in or outside of LA. Houndstooth dresser? Yes please! Items like the Union Jack Baroque Desk have me choosing Room Service for all the offices I style that want for a little extra something something."
