Moss is a swanky store in New York that toes the line between design mall and museum. Products by various designers are often displayed behind glass, and the mix of limited-edition creations is often quite bizarre. (The online store even has a section entitled Extreme Other.)
Now, founder Murray Moss is taking his sleek and cheeky aesthetic to Los Angeles. The store's second-ever showroom opens today at 8444 Melrose Avenue, and it sounds like quite a place. Consider this description from the Moss web site:
Moss-starved Angelinos will have their design needs fulfilled come August 3 when the large glass door in our ivy covered front pushes open to an astounding Swarovski Crystal Palace installation (of eighteen 8-foot high Vertical Glitterbox chandeliers by Georg Baldele) surrounding a 1938 Steinway Baby Grand fire-sculpted by Maarten Baas.
Like so many things in LA, this sounds like a place to see and be seen as much as a place to shop. Even if I can't afford anything in Moss, I'm dying to check it out.
