“It’s all in the details….L.A. Day one…. La Cienega Design Quarter…and lunch with Keith Granet at Lucques..

by Erin Paige Pitts

Today was a fabulous day to do the LA La Cienega Design quarter.  I followed in the footsteps of Elle Decor’s  “The Legends of La Cienega” which was here last week.  We started off with a bang with Marge Carson, Hollyhock and Mecox.  No matter how much you live design, it is always fun to go in these types of showrooms and see how they pair things together… either similarly or differently than I would have.  I was so impressed with the embellishments at Marge Carson

At Hollyhock,  I just loved some of the vignettes.  The groupings were well balanced and pleasing to the eye….

The next stop was Mecox.  Even though I have been to Mecox’s other locations, it was fun to see them with the California vibe…

Just down the street was Paul Marra… what a great visit.  I have been admiring their lighting for years and now I love their bone tables and klismos chairs by Sylvan… So beautiful!!!!

One last stop before lunch took us to the new flagship showroom for Rose Tarlow.  Not only is her furniture amazing but the building is spectacular and the work of an architect I am meeting with on Saturday, Marc Appleton!

We finished up our morning and then had  lunch with Keith Granet at a fabulous restaurant, Lucques on Melrose.  We so enjoyed our meeting with Keith.  It is always fun when you spend time with other “design heads” and talk “shop”.   Keith has been a driving force behind so many design “giants”.  It was an honor to meet him and get to know him.

That’s all for today…. headed to Newport Beach tomorrow and then to Santa Monica for dinner.  Until then….
