shopping on beverly blvd: emmerson troop

when we last visited beverly blvd, we took you to a fab store called orange; today, we visit their next door neighbor, emmerson-troop.

like orange, emmerson-troop has a selection of vintage treasures and a few edited items of their own design, but their store has a bit more of an organic, californa vibe- being a california boy, we love that. (it's also bit ironic, since william emmerson, the store's owner and designer, was born in london- i guess the california vibe is international!).

m21's inner drag queen LOVES these witty cigarette tables with giant diamonds as table tops (an emmerson-troop original, available in several finishes). we see one in a ladies bath, next to an chic, modern, free-standing tub...


love this pair of blanc de chine lamps with some great custom shades. this style of lamp is a favorite 'classique' for m21- we have several in the 'permanent collection' here at the atelier (one in our work area, originally was our grandmother's) and they occasionally pop up in our marketplace as well!


we love these multi-globe vintage chandeliers, of which ET has several on the sales floor. the top one is *perfect* for a residential project on our drawing board, should it ever progress to reality. if not, maybe it's perfect for the atelier, too- we love it that much!


a selection of chandeliers and sconces.


how chic are these henry moore lithograph triptychs? again, we want!


m21 is mad for the vintage metalwork of phillip and kelvin la verne, particularly their etched bronze chinoiserie pieces like this coffee table, the perfect blend of traditional and modern, brutal and refined, and functional yet decorative. the laverne's work was never mass produced (limited editions) so is the kind of timeless furniture that will always remain both fashionable and valuable.

a bit of what we consider the store's "california vibe", exemplified by these driftwood poofs and a screen of emmerson's own design.

Oh my, I love the diamomd table...I think I have to have one of those... I am going to email the store and see if they ship to Canada!
You are so right, it would look fab beside my bathtub with a candle going.......
Fingers crossed it is not totally out of my price range and they can ship me one....

Thanks for the wonderful write up! Just FYI, we plan to unveil a larger version of the diamond table in the next couple months, so stay tuned...

Thanks again...

What are those Henry Moore triptychs? They remind me of early and Basso and Brooke prints. Do you remember those? The naughty ones sewn up into couture gowns.
