Los Angeles isn't only home to the globe's best vintage and denim boutiques; it's also brimming with superior home décor stores that are ready to trick out just about every type of abode, from cute to colossal.

Since the last few months have been incredibly active in the world of LA real estate (everyone from millionaire blogstar Chiara Ferragni to Girls creator Lena Dunham are now honorary Angelenos), we decided to give last year's home goods map a serious renovation to present the 38 very best places to shop for your sanctuary in 2015.

From rustic midcentury must-stops like Hammer and Spear in DTLA to ultra-eclectic spots like Gold Bug in Pasadena to funky little shops like Potted in Atwater Village, we've got it all. Don't see your favorite? Hit up our tipline or leave a comment below and we'll consider them for the next round.
