You likely don’t spend much time thinking about rugs. And why should you? Jodie Fried and Sally Pottharst do it for you. In 2009, they launched Armadillo & Co., a line of rugs handwoven by artisan weavers in India. The rugs are known for being incredibly soft—and truly meant for living. In fact, Pottharst and Fried—who has three young kids at home—personally wear-test each of the rug styles before sending them to market. The Beverly Hills flagship is the first US retail and showroom space for the brand, so it’s meant to be a place where customers can come in, review samples, see pieces in situ, and ultimately customize the rug-buying experience based on what they need.

Casa Perfect
address upon request, Beverly Hills
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. Photos: (c) Pia Riverola.
