I have lived in Silverlake for 4 years but have never even noticed this store before. I think they have invested in some new signs. I'm so glad they did otherwise I would never have wandered in. It's located right next to the excellent Yolk but they stock very different items so there is no cross over. The furniture ranges from quite expensive (think $3000 for a sofa) right down to much cheaper ($175 for a set of four chairs). There is a great blend of new and vintage and the smaller gift-y knick-knacks are just as eclectic. I picked up a vintage bird corkscrew made from horn and some beautiful agate coasters. They have also opened a tiny bookstore in the back called Ivanhoe Books - the books are art and design, I know this is recently opened so I understand that some of their areas are a little shaky but it's a great start. The architecture and design sections seem particularly strong and there were some unusual fashion books and magazines too. I definitely recommend stopping in for some unusual gift ideas and they do great gift wrap on everything too!
