If you're a fan of the handmade treasures at Co-op 28 and the home decor gems at Apt 2B, prepare to get your mind blown. The latter has moved into Los Feliz's three-year-old indie mecca to offer a selection of retro-inspired couches, chairs, coffee tables, and dining sets.
Taking advantage of the recently up-for-grabs corner retail space attached to her existing boutique, Co-op 28 owner Marci Siegel jumped at the opportunity to expand. She immediately tapped Apt2B's Mat Herman, who just so happened to be ready to make his pop-up concept more permanent. "collaborate with other retailers to create the perfect setting at home. Mixing our modern flare with their Etsy-esque eclectic look, Apt2B and Co-op 28 are offering customers a great mix of home furnishings and decor," Herman explains.
The shop gave us a peek at the store's new 1,500 square feet, where we marveled over Apt2B's handmade-in-LA sofas that can be customized with your choice of fabrics under $788. If you've nabbed all that Apt2B has to offer, Co-op 28 Home also features some mid-century goodness from LA's Industrial Salvation. Stop by and check out the new digs starting tomorrow.
