I think there are a few store in the country doing pretty amazing things for retail (namely offering amazing product in wonderful environments and fearlessly promoting their singular vision in an artful way). I include in this list ABC Carpet & Home & John Derian in NYC, Trove in Laguna Beach, CA, and also Obsolete in LA.
ABC Carpet & Home
I have a thing for the old and discarded that was once useful. I like purpose in design and there is something about keeping artifacts alive in your home that makes you remember that you're just taking care of the things your grandchildren will inherit (so buy well, my friends! Invest in what you love!).
Obsolete is just so dreamy, so weird. It's like America's Deyrolle. Enjoy.
