Casa Perfect, a new private shopping experience in WeHo.
Right now, David is particularly keen on the tidal wave of creatives contributing to the design scene in LA. The designer says, “Part of what I'm so excited by—with Casa Perfect—is getting to know this group better. As a newbie, I've got my eyes on Eric Roinestad (a long time collaborator), Jonathan Cross, and Commune. And I'm super excited to get to know more people from our town!”
Here’s where David Alhadeff sharpens his eye for design in LA—sneakers, coffee and cacti included:
David Alhadeff: I hate to toot my own horn, but the reason I created Casa Perfect is to do something totally immersive and experiential. It's a very different type of shopping experience. The architecture of the house is incredible. That reason alone is worth a trip to Casa Perfect. In addition, if you're at all into home design or interior design products, we have a really incredible collection amassed of truly unique work.
Tortoise General Store
DA: *praise emoji* Tortoise General Store on Abbot Kinney is both a gallery and shop of Japanese design presented in a way that feels like shopping in Tokyo. It's a delight. I especially love the back gallery space.
DA: Also in Venice, General Admission inspires me to do more than look. I'm particularly into their eponymous clothing line designed in-house.
DA: Those into ceramics, get ready—owner Ryan Conder has amassed an incredible collection of humbly displayed masterwork amongst a curated select of solid men's staples. Heaven ...
DA: In my opinion, making a great cappuccino is good design and I love the work at Commissary.
DA: As one of the many ex-pat New Yorkers here, it's awesome my favorite sneaker shop has an outpost in LA.
DA: Commune design veterans created a small shop of tightly curated cacti... Hmmmm???? Dream shop!
The Tropics Inc
DA: When I'm in the market for a truly unique plant, this is my go-to. Really old specimens and unique plants in all shapes and sizes.
