After 30 years in business, this iconoclastic antique shop left its longtime home on Melrose Avenue for larger quarters on La Cienega in mid 2012. There’s nothing musty about this place, which has helped create the interiors of the Hard Rock Cafe and Planet Hollywood. Its range encompasses the 20th century, but its strength is the Art Deco era, from curvy couches to neon bar signs, to Wurlitzers and pinball machines. The eclectic and ever-changing inventory is dominated by furnishings, but includes folk art, clothing and jewelry. With the preponderance of four-figure prices, the staff is used to browsers, but eagle-eyed shoppers will spot some great small items for under $100.
