Renovating the decor of the rooms and changing the kitchen utensils a little is always good, right? As I am always recording cooking videos for you, I end up changing the objects I use more often. That way, you don’t get tired of seeing the same things over and over again.
For this reason, every time I travel I end up buying something new to add to my collection of decorative and kitchen items. Soon we will be in Los Angeles and, as always, I have started my searches for cool places to go. I selected some amazing stores that sell this type of material and I couldn’t help but tell you what they are 🙂
Hammer and spear
Specializing in interior design, Hammer and Spear is super refined and modern. Some of the products are more minimalist, while others are more rustic and with super different and varied formats. Regarding the utensils and kitchen, some of them are golden, the way I love it! The marble boards are also wonderful, a pity that they weigh a lot in the suitcase: /
Ten Thousand Villages
Ten Thousand Villages crockery, fabrics and furniture are made with incredible precision. All products are purchased by artisans from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. One of the brand’s biggest concerns is to maintain sustainable trade and ensure the employment of the poorest portion of these regions.
When you buy a piece from this place, you contribute to the lives of all the people involved in this process, from creativity to pattern modeling to production itself. Everything is super authentic and original – it’s worth a visit to the store!
All Huset products are cute. I was delighted with several things I saw on the site, from a simple mug to pots and tea towels. Some pieces are somewhat reminiscent of Scandinavian design, with a cleaner footprint, you know?
For those who have fun and minimalist prints, be sure to add to the itinerary of the trip. They have wonderful and super detailed options. Ah, they also sell some wooden kitchen utensils. If you like this type of material, take a look at the brand’s website.
If you dream of a super clean and brighter decor, you can be sure that you will fall in love with Consort. They don’t have many options for the kitchen, just a few glasses and mugs, bowls and bar accessories, but their decorating part is incredible.
The design of the pieces is done mainly by Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone, who insist on keeping the products always modern, innovative and creative. They also sell some objects made of marble. However, although they are beautiful, they are usually quite expensive (and heavy)!
Lost and found
Lost & Found’s pieces are more for the home in general, so kitchen utensils are not their specialty. Among the products related to cooking, there are some cutlery, glasses, plates and bowls. Most of them have a cleaner look, and those with prints are also simple and delicate. Some textile pieces are handmade, it is worth taking a look at them to get to know a little of the store’s work.
Muji is no longer new to many people. Each year the Japanese brand has gained more and more attention and received praise from customers around the world. The success is so great that São Paulo will receive a pop up store between June and July (2018).
Known mainly for its minimalist design, the store’s unit in Los Angeles is a paradise for those who like delicate, simple and beautiful pieces. Their cooking session is charming and you will find everything you need: utensils, pans, bows, jars, organizing dishes … A little of everything and at a great price 🙂
A + R
Like Muji, you can find a little bit of everything on A + R. They are not so concerned with the design, but with the practicality of each piece. Still, they are beautiful and modern. Some products are super cute, like the mug with the “wing” forming an elephant head.
Among the products in the store, the bestsellers in the kitchen line are usually those that have a rose gold color. In addition to them, the ceramic dishes and home decor items in general are incredible!
Who loves mugs knows how wonderful it is to find a place that sells a huge variety of them, right? At Poketo you will find many options, from those with written phrases to others with a more minimalist and clean design. In addition to other objects for the kitchen, the store sells a variety of decorative items.
All products follow a more creative footprint. Simple flower pots are transformed into pieces with a modern and innovative design! They also have a section dedicated to office and stationery items, all very cute 🙂
Thinking of a minimalist and simple design, but still modern, Scotti Sitz in partnership with John Davidson, founded Garde. They select pieces of different designs, so you will find a wide variety of products. They all follow this more refined line. Both the decorative objects as well as some more basic kitchen products are super elegant and modern, perfect for those who want a finer and more basic decoration, you know?
This time Paulo and I will not record vlogs in LA, taking the opportunity to enjoy the city more without worrying about the recordings. However, you can watch the videos from other times we went! All are available on our channel 😉
