Los Angeles Antiques, Art + Design Show Opening Night Party

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the 17th Annual Los Angeles Antiques, Art + Design Show Opening Night Party held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The event features over sixty prestigious national and international exhibitors and benefits the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts and Design Council. In attendance were both Hollywood celebs and designer celebs mingling together under one roof for a fabulous evening. (Click here for a link to the Getty Images.)

My date for the evening, Maison21 and I.

Reform Gallery, based here in Los Angeles, exhibited some fantastic artwork.

Always a fan of colorful abstract art, as seen at Reform Gallery.

More art and accessories at Reform Gallery’s space.

Vintage accessories seen at Joannes Lucas.

Loving this table lamp featured at Joannes Lucas.

Art and console in the space representing the LA based showroom, Habite.

One thing Maison21 and I agree on: we both loved almost everything in the Christopher Anthony Ltd space, a vintage store located in Palm Springs, CA.

A vintage bar cart at Christopher Anthony Ltd, pretty much puts every other bar cart to shame.

More fabulous finds from Christopher Anthony Ltd.

And yet, still more.

It was fun to see (& meet!) artist Lana Gomez in person. Emily recently featured Lana on the Material Girls blog (here)- we are a huge fan of her work!

Dragonette, another Los Angeles based showroom located on La Cienega Blvd, featured a range of furnishings and accessories in their space.

JF Chen, a recipient of the 2012 Design Leadership Award Honoree, featured some dramatic pieces in his space.

Bejeweled encrusted boxes at Downtown (I spied Kelly Wearstler checking these out!).
