We've made bold claims before and we're not backing down. We love Empiric and their new location in Culver City only keeps us coming back for more. Part menagerie, part vintage science laboratory, part mid century mecca--then throw in some modern custom built pieces and you begin to get an idea of the scope of style represented in their home furnishings. Everything has to pass muster with owners Annie and Michael who have impeccable (and eclectic) taste. And starting Wednesdays in October join them as they keep the store open until 7pm to have a drink and get a sneak peek of their new Fall Fabrics and in-production pieces.
Go to the Unusual Objects part of the site to find where they're really a cut above: taxidermy, vintage posters, scales and sand timers.
Michael and Annie are two of the nicest people I have met and they really know what they're talking about. They make sure that any piece you buy from them is up to code. It's like they found everything worth keeping since the turn of the century and somehow kept it in pristine condition just for you. And if you don't find what you're looking for, chances are their custom pieces will fit the bill! Enjoy and see you on wednesdays!
