Urban Renewal: Laurel Hardware in Los Angeles

Julie Carlson August 28, 2012

A former hardware store in LA is transformed into a low-key, high-style dining venue.

Sam Marshall, a member of the design team behind Gjelina, was responsible for the industrial-glamorous interior (we especially like the wallpapered ceiling). "We want to make it a neighborhood restaurant and keep that history going," according to manager John Rankin. For more information, go to Laurel Hardware.
