While Melrose Place's luxe lingerie shops Kiki de Montparnasse and Niki Schwan offer hot and steamy pieces for your boudoir, the high-end shopping stretch will soon boast another stop for sexifying the rest of your abode. A trusted tipster tells us fancy faucets and furniture retailer Waterworks is also moving into the block, which recently scored celeb snippers Nine Zero One's second salon.
The kitchen and bath chain's taking over All America Distributors' former warehouse space—now under major makeover mode—next to bridal haven Carolina Herrera and across the street from fashion-faved java joint Alfred Coffee. It marks the second Melrose move for Waterworks, as they shuttered two LA stores in 2008 and decamped to a larger space on Melrose Avenue at Westbourne Drive, where they're currently located. No word yet on the opening date; stay tuned.
