Beverly Hills Shops
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 (and added a location 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 they opened their first west coast showroom in a mid-century LA villa in the Hollywood Hills, and now they've acquired a new location—the Trousdale Estates house, which 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. Photos: (c) Pia Riverola

Since 1995, Jill Roberts' mini-chainlet of boutiques have been holding strong, offering that specifically LA-buy: Plenty of denim and t-shirts, plus a few stand-out pieces from designers like Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, and Kelly Wearstler. There are two other LA locations: Santa Monica and Studio City.

Mameg is tucked away behind the mirror-fronted Maison Martin Margiela on Little Santa Monica, and should you not know to look, you’d never know it was there. But search it out, and you’ll find a pretty rarified world. Here Eatable of Many Orders sweaters mingle with Cosmic Wonders dresses, and Jil Sander cardigans rest next to Hussein Chalayan hats.
