Whether you live in California or are just visiting, West Hollywood is one of the best neighborhoods to shop for home furnishings. Known to locals as WEHO, this area is frequented by some of the best interior designers who visit the many showrooms of the world famous Pacific Design Center. But it’s also home to many independent stores, as well as tried-and-true chains like CB2, West Elm, RH, and Design Within Reach.

I recently spoke with two interior designers featured in the latest Creators of West Hollywood campaign to find out their favorite places to shop in the area. This campaign focuses on exploring the “new luxury” that has recently emerged in the city along with the perspective of the creator behind what drives his inspiration.

Whether you’re looking for original art, custom-made furniture, or the softest sheets you can sleep on, here’s a guide to some of the best places to shop for furniture and home decor in West Hollywood.

Mary Ta’s Picks

Mary Ta is not just a designer, she owns and operates two furniture stores in West Hollywood: Mass Beverly and Minotti. One of her favorite places to shop from is the James Perse Home. Ta tells me, “I love the giant built-in cheeseboards designed like surfboards, the bedding is made of soft T-shirt-like quality materials.”

While the brand is best known for its stylish clothing, the home line is just as stylish. James Perse has a showroom at the Pacific Design Center, as well as a retail outpost on Robertson Boulevard. The store has everything from sheets to towels to bedding to some larger furniture and even a collection of antiques. Don’t forget to pick up some t-shirts while you’re there.

Ta is also a fan of the Bang & Olufsen store in Roberston. “Their bespoke showroom in Robertson where you can custom design everything,” explains the designer. The brand is best known for its elegantly designed electronics. Truly unlike anything else, B&O has wireless speakers, TVs and BeoSound products. Once he experiences this location, it’s easy to understand why the brand is a favorite with audiophiles and interior designers alike.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for art, Ta suggests checking out the Louis Stern Gallery. He loves Bertoia’s sculptures. She tells me that this artist is an “icon of the West Hollywood art scene.” With unique exhibits from a variety of rotating artists, there’s always something new to see at Louis Stern.

Adair Curtis Secret Designer Sauce

Celebrated interior designer and co-founder of JSN Studio, Adair Curtis, loves to shop at Boundary on Robertson Boulevard. “His collections are elegant and include unique pieces that fit my design aesthetic. Every time I go there, I find pieces that align perfectly with my projects. The owners have become great collaborators of mine,” she says. With a variety of larger pieces and décor by independent designers, this store is the perfect place for statement pieces.
