Galerie Half: LA's Best Resource for 20th-Century Antiques

Issue 2 · Western Edition · January 16, 2014

Los Angeles antiques emporium Galerie Half has been on our radar for a while now (Alexa visited just a couple of weeks ago and is dreaming of a pair of Belgian loveseats). Not surprisingly, the gallery is a favorite with the LA design cognoscenti too (Diane Keaton and Ellen Degeneres are fans). The founders of Galerie Half, Cliff Fong and Cameron Smith, offer an artful mix of 20th-century design, European antiques, primitive furniture, and architectural artifacts. To see more, visit the shop on Melrose Avenue in LA and online at Galerie Half.
