So in today’s age of ikea knock-offs and expensive DWR reproductions, where can you go to achieve true contemporary design?   The answer is the Twentieth Store / Gallery (founded by Stefan Lawrence in 1999.  Twentieth is at the forefront of contemporary and innovative design working with many artists to bring anything you can dream of.   That is If you dream of Sci-fi pod beds to horsehair covered bar stools, melted hand-blown functional amber glass, giant animal shaped lamps, unique porcelain accessories, stylish Credenzas, contrasting Sofas, Sculpted Chairs…….

What made this a wonderful experience for us was the truly welcoming staff that just loves design and are happy to share their knowledge and chat design history with you.  It was inspiring to see so much creativity.  There are many design stores posing as galleries these days and Twentieth is the best mix of eclectic design, signature pieces, and pure style!

One Comment on “Twentieth Design Gallery Los Angeles

  1. We visited again on July 2013 and it appears the place changed ownership and with that it’s cool.
    They still carry some interesting designers but the place is a third of the size now and inclining towards more main stream designers.
