Needing to find a bigger space for your collection is a sure sign that you're doing something right, and furniture/home accessories designer Alexandra Von Furstenberg has done just that. Alexandra, former Image Director of revolutionary womenswear label Diane Von Furstenberg, has proven popularity and staying power with her retro-turned-futuristic acrylic home goods line (launched in 2007), ranging from pricey coffee tables to more accessible picture frames and placemats, all created in a spectacular rainbow of colorways.
The new flagship store, made beautiful not only by Von Furstenberg's designs, but also by her partner Dax Miller's epic gallery-style lighting, is still within WeHo's Design District, having jumped from Melrose Avenue to Robertson Boulevard. The shiny new 1,500 square-foot space sits prominently on the corner at Beverly Boulevard, rubbing elbows with Stella McCartney, Curve, and The Ivy. Even if you're not in the market for house wares, it's absolutely worth stopping in for the artsy eye candy and brilliant displays. We're definitely filling these frames with our favorite pictures:
Alexandra Von Furstenberg is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm, and Saturdays from 11am to 6pm.
