Designer Kristen Buckingham has opened an eponymous shop on La Cienega Boulevard (912 North), nearly adjacent to the also newly-opened Todd Alexander Romano. The Duchess popped in for a visit a few days ago, and was extremely impressed with the shop. Ms. Buckingham's carefully edited selection of furniture and accessories is cleanly presented against a striking, elegant backdrop. It is a lovely retail presentation and one of the best the Duchess has seen in quite some time.
As always, design services are also available (if one can swing it).
The Buckinghams' living room. The coffee table design, much discussed when this photo was first printed in Elle Decor, is available through Kristen Buckingham.
The Buckingham family's own kitchen.
Great Eamesian bookshelves, available at Kristen Buckingham.
This neutral palette is rather punchy, given the boldness of the graphic prints on pillows and the lounge, yet the overall impression is restrained.
