Trove Laguna.7


French aviary c. 1910-1920

This store just makes my heart beat a little faster…

Located in Laguna beach, California,

it pairs wonderful patina laden, one of a kind antiques

with quirky, “where did you get that”  finds…

Just look at the rolling back of this stripped to the jute…

Married store owners Heather and Bobby travel extensively to furnish their

six year old store with Swedish, Belgian and French antiques, and one of a kind

foundry cast tables and stools… softening the rough edges with luxurious

mohair throws, hand-made Astier de Villatte, antique French linens,

19th century portraits, and even bundles of hand made paper…

Heather told me that the store originated as an antique jewelry, antique clothing,

antique smalls shop and morphed into what it is now, when a larger space became

available a block north of their original shop on the North Coast Highway in beach

heavy Southern California. Their last buying trip was to Belgium, where they

were lucky enough to get a tour of Vervoordt’s castle and Kanaal, which she

called major inspirations. They’ll be heading to Belgium/UK in a few months.
