6400 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood
Though there are two other locations in San Francisco and Berkeley, this Hollywood location, which occupies an entire city block, is the largest. The diverse music selection spans two floors, and an entire room devoted to jazz.
836 Highland Ave., Hollywood
Adam Blackman and David Cruz's eponymous shop occupies a space that once was a gay nightclub (it was in American Gigolo if you'd like to see it in its former incarnation), which just gives credence to the concept that you never know where you might find treasure. They have impeccable taste and a curatorial sensibility which makes this one of LA's more inspirational home goods shops.
Casa Perfect (Closed)
When The Future Perfect first opened in Williamsburg, it 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. The new LA showroom, Casa Perfect, is no exception: Housed in a classic, mid-century LA villa (pool included) decked out in TFP’s finest, you'll find not only a showroom for the latest and greatest designers and discoveries (outdoor furniture by Christian Woo, vessels by ceramicist Eric Roinstad, and lighting by Lindsey Adelman), but a veritable oasis that can actually be lived in. Take note: visits to Casa Perfect are appointment-only—you’ll get the exact address for the private shopping experience, tucked in the Hollywood Hills, after you book a slot. Photos: Lauren Coleman
Freecity Supershop (Closed)
1139 Highland Ave., Hollywood
Ron Herman started selling this brand a few years back, and they became so popular for their sweatshirts that they opened their own store. There are a few locations in LA, but this Supershop in Hollywood is their flagship.
Just One Eye
7000 Romaine St., Hollywood
Launched by Maxfield’s former fashion director, Paola Russo, Just One Eye is an example of a gallery-cum-boutique that’s executed perfectly. The racks are sparingly stocked with labels like The Row, Proenza Schouler, and Tsumori Chisato, you can snap up Warhol prints and Calder carpets, and there are always spot-on art/fashion collaborations.
Lost & Found
6320 Yucca St., Hollywood
Lost & Found in Hollywood occupies a stretch of adjacent buildings on Yucca Street, which is tucked away above Hollywood Boulevard. It’s there that you'll find one of L.A.'s best shopping destinations. While there are spaces for women and homes, we particularly love the kids edit, which revolves around feathered headbands, papier-mâché masks, and t-shirts emblazoned with everything from motorcycles to birds. The new outposts in Santa Monica are huge, offering more floor space to men's and women's clothing, along with even more delights for little ones. (Plus, a great edit of home.)
