Design Matters Gallery

Last week I headed into a new declaration of gallery, greeted by an enormous dangly red mobile-like art piece that was unmissable on busy West LA Pico Blvd. The second thing I noticed was art, everywhere and design objects, everywhere…and architecture, everywhere. You rarely see all in one. Yet, art consultant, Leonardo Ledesma of Art Seen and architect, Mark Bittoni of bittonidesignstudio, have forged art and design together in their exciting collaboration, designmatters boutique.


The front portion of Bittoni’s studio is dedicated to carefully curated objects accentuated by Ledesma’s Art. Imagine a Josh Jakus felt eggflat perched in front of an Ann Thronycroft work…yeah amazing.  You can literally trip over great design and great art here.


Josh Jakus eggflat.


Ann Thronycroft’s Dreamtime 2. A local Venice artist.


James Verbicky’s Diffuse. I love this one, a must see in person. The mixed media he uses looks like the projection of the curl of a wave.


Stefano Ciannella’s Same Place Same Time


Menu’s black contour plates


Dean Styers’ Barely Legal


Check them out at 10590 1/2 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90064

Mohair throws

I love these mohair throws made and designed by Karin Lilja-Makkonen from Finland…they look and probably feel heavenly! They are available through Susan Chalom in the US.

I love this bedroom. I blogged about it here.

Springy colors!


These gorgeously designed disposable tableware by Japan’s Wasara are fully biodegradable and compostable. So perfect to show off a yummy easter brunch for guests! They are available in the US at A+R.
I just heard of another 7.4 earthquake in Japan and a new Tsunami warning. My heart goes out to Japan and hope their resilience will not wane. Despite the major earthquakes and tsunami, Japan will always be a leading innovator in design.
Monkey-ing around

This wallcovering called Mavis Monkey by Bholu is so precious! It also comes in a very faint light blue. So cute for the little newbies!
