Shopper’s Diary: Lost & Found Home in Los Angeles

October 7, 2016

Whenever we’re in need of a jolt of online interiors inspiration, we head to Lost & Found, Jamie Rosenthal’s quirky, always fresh assemblage of global interiors finds. But until last week, I hadn’t actually visited her brick-and-mortar outpost, located in an airy storefront in Santa Monica. Join us for a tour:

Lost & Found modern home store in Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Above: Jamie subscribes to the notion that any one thing can function well anywhere in the home—a tablecloth makes a great bedspread, and vise versa. Still, for practical purposes, the store is organized roughly by room: In the “tabletop” section shown here hangs “Pause”—an oil-on-canvas painting by Malibu painter Judith Guillemot, beneath a Misha Gold UFO Light from Paris Au Mois D’Aout; $595.

The Tourni Candle Holder ($98) behind it is also cut from rock salt, and the flat-bottomed, live-edge Olive Wood Oval Bowl in the back is made in Tunisia; $185.

Above: At left, Seagrass Baskets by Cinq Etoiles are made in Tunisia; $175- to $275 depending on size. At right: Jamie discovered this furniture line several years ago while in Paris, and ended up collaborating closely with the company and launching Lost & Found exclusives—including the dining chair shown here (Jamie’s own design). (See A Silver Lining: Glamorous Eco-Chic Outdoor Furniture for more.) “Some of the pieces existed in a more traditional Indian style,” said Jamie,” but I redesigned and recolored them for Lost & Found.” Each piece is made in India of teak and recycled materials. The Lost & Found Dining Chair is available in five colors, including bleached jute, indigo, and the silver shown here; $350 each.
