More DTLA reno news for your Wednesday. Over in the Arts District, inspiring vintage decor boutique Hammer and Spear is also going under the knife, presumably in anticipation of all of those
gentrifiers newbies moving into that cruise ship-like development that is One Santa Fe (where stylish retail haunt The Yards will open this spring). After opening by architecture school Sci-Arc about two years ago, the home goods shop temporarily shut its doors in late December and will reopen its majorly expanded space next month.
Founded by cool husband-and-wife design masterminds Scott Jarrell and Kristan Cunningham (who also hosted HGTV's Design on a Dime), the shop is doubling its square footage taking over the office space next door. They're in the process of knocking down walls right this minute; once open, the store will house a fancy tea room and will continue to offer vintage furniture and decor finds, apothecary and home fragrance products, LA-inspired prints from the couple's own Arts District Printing Co., and much more.
Hammer and Spear 2.0 is slated to unveil its new digs in February; stay tuned for more.
