Whether you’re new to the city or have been a long-time resident, you know that LA’s dense and diverse culture gives every budding fashionista the creative license to be a designer. Along with the artistic creatives thriving in the City of Angels, expect nothing short of urban colorful walls, fashion-forward neighborhoods, and trendy coffee shops.
While LA is best known for its world-renowned shopping scene and the potential to spot a Kardashian, it’s also brimming with home décor stores that will elevate your space with a look that is up to par with LA’s chic and contemporary aura.
From Downtown all the way to the vibrant Venice art scene, here are LA’s coolest stores and boutiques for home décor and design.
Rule of Three Studio – Downtown
Los Angeles designer Paige Cleveland used inspiration from the art of hand-crafted textiles to create an original collection of marbled silks that flawlessly blend water with paint and fabric. Three dimensions of color—hue, value, and intensity—fuse beautifully to form the organic pattern that results from dripping paint on to the marbling bath. Rule of Three utilizes this multi-step marbling method in their unique collection of contemporary home goods and accessories.
MATTEO Home – Downtown
Matthew Lenoci founded MATTEO with the intention of creating a simple collection of sheets from the highest quality luxurious textiles. This bed linen company uses a modern dyeing technology to cut, sew, dye and pack every order individually with low-impact eco-friendly dyes. MATTEO fuses ancient knowledge with modern technology to create products that are individually unique and unlike any other on the market.
enSoie – Silver Lake
Founder Monique Meier was the first to introduce a silk scarf collection into textile design, thereby establishing enSoie as an fashionably innovative industry leader. Since its inception, enSoie’s collection of clothing, accessories, ceramics, and jewelry from Los Angeles and Zurich boasts a perfect harmony of timelessness and modernity. enSoie promises a production process that abides by high ethical standards, and Meier insists that “We produce for soul, not for sale.”

Californian Nathan Turner merged his passions for design, travel, and food to open an eponymous Melrose decor and design shop, heavily influenced by his years of travel. The designs of Turner’s textiles, ceramics, and prints fuse patterns, tones, and pieces with history and character. Turner uses renewables like jute and flax, and nature’s resources as his materials.
