Silver Lake Shops

Lawson-Fenning silver lake
1618 Silver Lake Blvd., Silver Lake
Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning opened Lawson-Fenning on Beverly Boulevard, the epicenter of LA's design district, before opening this more far-flung second location, which they conceived as a concept store. As such, their goal was to provide a curated selection of mid-century California and Scandinavian design that's equal parts affordable and luxe. The furniture and furnishings, which are all made in Southern California with sustainable wood, are gorgeously turned out, and there's also plenty of small packables, like glass carafes from Copenhagen, and knotted door mats. The shop includes a design bookstore, Ivanhoe Books, which has become a popular neighborhood destination for current and vintage design titles.

Mohawk General Store
4011 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake
Now four locations strong, this general-style store offers generally guy-centric range of clothing and accessories (there are a handful of great picks for women, specifically at this location), along with really beautiful home goods. Expect to find Isabel Marant jumpsuits (for her), Engineered Garment pants (for him), along with Want Les Essentials laptop sleeves, Cire Trudon candles, and Fort Standard trivets. There's also a location in Pasadena and Santa Monica.

Oficine
2912 Rowena Ave., Silver Lake
True to its name, Broome Street General Store is as much a place to get goods as it is a place to get goodies (coffee, flaky pastry, sweets). But back to the goods: perfumes, Tata Harper skin-care products, leather-bound journals, made-in-LA ceramics, olive oil from Spain, Italian Arborio rice. It was only a matter of time before the café began to overflow. And this overflow has encouraged the opening of Broome Street’s extension, Oficine. It’s a treasure trove of waxy Barbour jackets (for looking chic the three days a year it rains in LA), Staub kitchenware, exquisitely scented Fornasetti candles—the things you didn’t realize you wanted and won’t want to leave without. Next time you find yourself on this somewhat random stretch of Rowena Avenue, go in; you can’t miss the distinct emerald storefront.
