The very British Brenda Antin is the most divine, 
delightful,& delicious "shopkeeper" in LA
& her eponymous shop is fantastically fabulous, 
& a designer's "trade secret"!!!
 
The store is a unique blend of vintage & new ....
including a melange of French & English & Italian antique 
furniture, lamps, & accessories!!!
 
Plus Brenda's "own" stunning custom collection 
of linen (natural & over-dyed) upholstered furniture!!!
 
She has also created extraordinary wicker furniture 
that she manufactures in LA!!!
 
And there is also a stunning selection 
of bespoke pillows!!!
 
BUT, I am most in awe of her enormous collection 
of vintage textiles!!!
Traveling to France, England, & Italy, 
I'm sure Brenda & her husband Mike 
never met a piece of linen, toile, or ticking 
that they didn't ship back to LA!!!
 
In her upstairs loft, this "textile junkie" 
also has a secret trove of goodies
from around the world .....
including incredible indigos, India quilts, 
& Japanese silks!!!
 
Brenda is the ultimate "accessorator supreme" 
& a "must-meet" in LA!!!!
 
An old-fashioned kinda' girl,
Brenda has no website ...
but can be reached at

A Collection of Unique & Unusual Design @ Ani Inc!!!

My friend Ani Antreasyan is an "accessorator's" dream!!! 

 

She is a fabulous "garden guru" and the purveyor of all things "accessoration" ..... 
from antique stone Turkish garden pieces to 1950's tables & chairs ... 
and all things in between!!!

 

Part of her collection can be seen this weekend at the Bridgehampton Antique Show at the Community Center ...... where her booth is an eclectic mix of the most stunning design elements and the way they are "put-together" is an inspiration for all "design divas!!!"
