Los Angeles is famous for its art walks. Downtown, Culver City, and Venice all have dates when the galleries and shops that line a particular stretch of town open their doors well past dark and patrons are invited to trawl the many visual stylings within. But, why should art have all the fun? What about design?
One doesn’t always think of Los Angeles when considering a design destination but it’s quickly building a strong rep in that direction. Which isn’t surprising considering that the city of angels sports the cream of the aesthetics, antiques, and architecture crop. So, those who adore décor will be thrilled to note that design is getting its due in this town with the La Cienega Design Quarter’s Holiday Design Walk.
The walk, which takes place December 3rd until 8:00 pm and then Saturday, December 4th, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, will fill La Cienega from Santa Monica to Beverly. Think of it as a sophisticated, stylish, and subdued block party of design devoteés, without M.I.A. or the doorknockers.
In addition to keeping the lights on and the doors open several LCDQLA participants are hosting events at the Holiday walk. Be sure to drop (or should I say walk) by, peruse the fixings and fixtures and pick up a couple presents while you’re at it. I’ll be heading over to street artist Louis Carreon‘s show at Lee Stanton Antiques on Friday at 5:00 pm and then skipping over to Catherine Malandrino at about 6:00 pm for an informal fashion viewing and cocktail party. I’ve already marked the shindigs in my calendar. And so should you. In pen.
