The West Hollywood and La Cienega Design Districts better watch their backs. Melrose Avenue's unofficial design gallery row (that stretch just west of Highland) is now home to Consort, which debuts its technicolor interior decor mecca today.
Co-founders and interior designers Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone linked up with client Marie Goble to create the high-end home furnishings and design studio, which is conveniently surrounded by inspiring galleries like Lawson Fenning, Galerie Half, The Window, Object, and many others. Sanders tells us the 2,000-square-foot space features a mix of merch inspired by Italian modern-meets-1980s Miami vibes: think custom-made bed frames with playful striped legs, color-blocked wool blend pillows, repainted vintage lighting with pops of color, and more.
Other highlights include mid-century modern seating, reupholstered vintage furniture by celeb interior designer Estee Stanley, wall art by fashion photographers Andrew Arthur and Gray Malin, lighting by Sabin, bedding from Parachute Home, textiles by Shilo Engelbrecht, body products and home fragrances by Golda, and much more.
Consort is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
