LA Store: Mercado

Although the main part of Silver Lake's Sunset Junction might have lost some of its beloved design/furnishing shops thanks to rising rents (RIP Sunset Orange and The Den of Antiquity), we're happy to see a lovely new kid on the block pop east of the Junction, right next door to The Living Room...

Inside Mercado's black awning shop is a meticulously well-thought decor shop that reminded of us of our own past daydreams for an "antiquities-meets-modern" interior. Curvaceous glass jars, faux tile floor rugs, delicate jewelry, housewares, pillows and custom upholstered furniture (our favourite piece is the custom upholstered green chicken and egg print seating above)...the store's selection is well edited, thoughtfully display, and as sophisticated as Mercado owner Chelsea Iovino's friendly pet poodle. A most welcome to Silver Lake's ever changing neighborhood.
