Shopper’s Diary: The Melrose Project in Los Angeles

September 30, 2010

Newly opened on Melrose Place in LA and already causing a frisson in the design world: The Melrose Project, an antiques and art collaborative curated by mother/son team Kathleen Clements and Tommy Clements (see their rug designs at Woven Accents). The Clements are known for mixing eras and styles with ease: "We're focused on marrying disparate pieces and making them work together—refined antiques mixed with primitive with industrial," Tommy Clements says. "We've rounded up pieces from our favorite antique dealers (including Lee Stanton in LA, Robuck & Co. in Atlanta, Karla Katz in New Orleans) and mixed them with contemporary furniture and art from galleries like Michael Kohn and the Rose Gallery." The vibe of the space is simple, spare, gallery-like, with white-painted cinderblock walls and sealed-concrete floors; retail and trade both welcome.

N.B. The Melrose Project will be stocking linens from New York-based Olatz—they'll be the first retail outlet to carry her covetable luxe Italian and Portuguese bedding.
