What do you get when you take a couple with a strong editorial sense and an eye for global design? In the case of Andy Griffith, a former film editor and Rose Apodaca, a style journalist you get A+R. A+R is a well-edited collection of objects for the home and beyond, sourced from every corner of the globe. The roster of designers holds some more widely recognized names and some not. One of the things that A+R prides itself on is finding great designs first; they strive to always be stocking what's new.
With a storefront based out of Venice, CA and plans in the works to open more locations, if you don't happen to live nearby enough to visit them in person they have a comprehensive website you can shop from. Browse by new arrivals for the most recent discoveries, category or material. With a blend of quirky house wares, useful kitchen accessories, furnishings and more you're sure to find something unique.
