Belgian brand Tribù’s 5,000-square-foot showroom stuns in the West Hollywood Design District.
TAKE IT OUTSIDE
The West Hollywood Design District is now home to Belgian outdoor furniture mogul Tribù’s first-ever brand-exclusive showroom. The 5,000-square-foot space takes inspiration from midcentury design icons—notably Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Neutra—and boasts a neutral color palette, overlapping textural elements and an emphasis on natural materials (think Muschelkalk stone tiles, hand-applied stucco, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and hemp ceiling coverings). “As someone who appreciates beautiful properties, I was immediately captivated by the space’s floor plan and atmosphere,” notes CEO Koen De Cock. “I am grateful to have our flagship space in Los Angeles, where we can share our vision and passion for our brand.” Expect a beautifully curated range of world-class designer collections, from Monica Armani’s Ukiyo table and chairs inspired by Japanese calligraphy to the stunning Senja collection from award-winning Belgian architecture team Studio Segers. tribu.com
Wrensilva’s Standard HiFi Record Console in teak is music to our ears.
FOR THE RECORD
Wrensilva’s latest handcrafted record console is a vision in teak, and there are only 100 hand-built units in the world. The Standard HiFi Record Console is reimagined in the FSC-certified plantation teak and features new symmetrical slatted doors, warm white speaker covers and brushed satin brass legs. “We’ve envisioned designing a Wrensilva with teak for years,” explains CEO Greg Perlot. “It’s a wood that engages all the senses as it’s sanded and shaped to reveal a beautiful patterning that makes the final build of each console so special.” Six listening modes include a premium turntable, Sonos and Bluetooth functionality, a 3.5mm mobile jack and two additional RCA inputs. Adds Perlot, “The timeless materials selected for this limited edition will bring the warmth of music into a room for generations to come.” wrensilva.com
Nabrini’s new bath linens collection takes pampering to a plush new level.
Nabrini’s latest launch of luxury bath linens is worth a second glance. Each hand-cut towel features rounded corners, signature nautical stitches, a side with a long cotton terry loop for maximum absorption and another side with a silky cotton finish. Says Nabrini founder Leo Damian, “Our towels are more than just exquisite pieces, they are a testament to our dedication to crafting opulent bath linens using the finest natural cotton fibers.” There are three collections in total, each evoking a unique coastal essence. For a more traditional aesthetic, the Latasio collection of washcloths, hand towels, bath towels and bath sheets comes in either white or sand. Punch up the personality with one of the edgy Visazzo bath towels, each hand-stitched with pirate themes—think cheeky skulls, tempting cherries and chic geometric motifs. Finally, the Tesoro exclusive line of luxury pet towels ensures your pooch also enjoys some next-level pampering. nabrini.com
Brazilian design comes to L.A. in the form of furniture brand Sossego.
“People know about Italian design, Scandinavian design [and] midcentury modern American design, but Brazilian design wasn’t a recognized category. What really excited me while founding and creating Sossego was realizing that we had the opportunity to build a brand in a new, unknown category,” founder and CEO Jonathan Durling divulges. Durling created the Brazilian-inspired brand in 2015, bringing the designs of Aristeu Pires to the U.S. and focusing on modern furniture, lighting, art and accessories; the name comes from a Portuguese word that praises a life of warmth and bliss. Today, Sossego has opened a 4,000-square-foot flagship in the Culver City Arts District, showcasing the best of the brand’s live, work and play vignettes and furniture collections. The by-appointment space features a lush zen garden, an indoor-outdoor dining area and an art gallery for guests to peruse. Other perks of note? High-quality programming will include talks with designers like Pires, installations by Domingos Tótora and Marcos Amato, and partnerships with organizations like Fort LA. sossegodesign.com
Tricia Benitez Beanum’s beloved Pop-Up Home now has a permanent space on Western Avenue.
Tricia Benitez Beanum’s beloved furniture pop-up has transitioned to a permanent space on Western Avenue. Previously dubbed “The Queen of Estate Sales,” Beanum started Pop-Up Home in a warehouse with no sign that was only open once a month, yet her covetable curations—from estate sale heirlooms to flea market finds—quickly racked up a roster of A-list fans, including Pamela Anderson (one of her very first clients), Ryan Reynolds, Shea Mitchell and Zendaya. The new space is rife with eclectic finds—she makes it a point to never stick to one aesthetic. This brick-and-mortar storefront marks a significant shift for L.A.’s design community, making it easier than ever for collectors and tastemakers to shop in serious style. popuphome.com
