When David Alhadeff first opened the Future Perfect in Williamsburg, he made waves by selling contemporary, well-designed furniture and small home goods by young, totally unknown designers. Nowadays, the store has grown up a bit and moved to Manhattan (Alhadeff added a store in San Francisco, too), highlighting the work of talented designers both burgeoning and established, mixed together and contextualized in a home-like setting. Last year, Alhadeff opened a West Coast showroom in a mid-century modern LA villa in the Hollywood Hills, and now it’s moved to a new location—a Trousdale Estates house that Elvis Presley previously called home. The sprawling space, designed in 1958 by architect Rex Lotery, has serious Hockney vibes, in addition to floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. Look for lighting by Lindsey Adelman and furnishings by Piet Hein and Neri & Hu for De La Espada. Visits to Casa Perfect are by appointment only and you’ll be given the exact address upon confirmation.
