Shopper’s Diary: Hawkins New York, Now in Los Angeles

January 29, 2019

Hawkins New York has been on our radar for some time. A search of our archives shows that its modern houseware designs have popped up in some of our favorite home tours (like this one and this one)—not to mention Hawkins New York participated in our Remodelista Market a couple years back. Founders Paul Denoly and Nick Blaine started the business (it’s both a brand and a store) in 2013 out of their home in Hudson, New York, and since then, it’s grown to three brick and mortar shops: one in Hudson, one in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan, and another—their most recent—in Los Angeles.

Hawkins New York migrated to the Arts District of Downtown L.A. this past summer, where it joined a recently launched collective of cafes and boutiques in the ROW DTLA, a hip campus comprising six historic buildings, an open-air market, and lots of green space to boot. (Our friend Erica Tanov has a store here, as does the cult Japanese stationery brand Hightide.) As to be expected, its California outpost is more spacious than its New York digs. The shop stocks the brand’s own designs as well as a tightly edited mix of home goods by other artisans—think cast iron cookware by Crane, shag rugs by Alyson Fox, and porcelain planters by Andrew Molleur.

Let’s take a tour.
