As mentioned in our 2015 map of LA's coolest home goods shops, vintage home decor favorite Hammer and Spear recently unveiled it's stunning remodel at 255 South Santa Fe Avenue. In addition to hosting tons of retro interiors, husband-and-wife owners Scott Jarrell and Kristan Cunningham's expanded space also includes Sabine furniture, Woven Accents rugs (priced in the thousands), Thrux Lawrence handmade leather goods (priced between $20-$570), and D.S. and Durga Cologne (they tell us that their bestseller is Burning Barbershop, $106).
The living room-inspired space also hosts $40 prints by Arts District Printing Company, the product of collaborative efforts between Jonathan Ventura and Hammer and Spear. Made in the historic Arts District, Ventura's original photography highlights the urban and natural beauty of Los Angeles while utilizing organic inks and printing on handmade Nepalese paper. There's also an in-house design firm that offers full-scale design services, including project management. One-stop shop, indeed.
