One of our favorite online retailers and Twitter friends Apt2B, will open a new pop-up shop on May 1 with a distinctly unique design. The retail space is also designed to look and feel like a cool Los Angeles apartment. The shop, a 900 square-foot space, will offer many in-store specials as well as many new furniture pieces that will later be available on the Apt2B website.
Apt2B's pop-up shop will be open from May 1 through 31 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and is located in the heart of the design district in West Hollywood at 8654 Melrose. Be sure to stop by if you're in the LA area.
Designer Frank Harker, who you may know from HGTV's Design on a Dime, created the look of the space. Harker explained, "The idea behind the Apt2b pop-up space was to give the consumer the feeling of coming home. Apt2B is an online home furnishings retailer specific to the LA community; my challenge was to bring the philosophy of a company that only existed on the internet into a reality where customers can touch, feel, and experience the product firsthand. The exciting part for me was as much to make the customer feel at home, as it was to make a store of affordable furnishings feel at home in a location directly across from the Pacific Design Center, amongst some of the most well respected design showrooms in the world."
