From It model-approved coffee to a celeb-frequented salon to a host of cult-fave labels, Melrose Place offers almost everything for the luxury-loving style star—and apparently, the only thing missing was the kitchen sink. Fashionable faucets retailer Waterworks had some screws left to tighten on its relocated flagship, which was slated to open on the swanky street last week and is now set to debut this Friday.
The home hardware company shuttered its longtime (and seemingly aptly-located) Melrose Avenue digs over Thanksgiving weekend to make way for the new 8,000-square-foot space, which will house "the first fully-realized Waterworks Kitchen showroom in Los Angeles [and] a dedicated section of eight newly-designed kitchen vignettes [featuring] cabinetry, hardware, surfaces, fixtures, and furnishings." In addition to offering its customizable bath and kitchen collections, the massive shop will include casual seating and beverage bar areas for interior designers and their clients.
