On the same day, we stopped by Nick Metropolis on La Brea to pick up a sofa for one of their music producer clients. Nick's is a thrift-o-ramaof everything from mid-century sofas and dinettes to odd display items (get a load of the gigantic martini glass) and whimsical accessories.
Senor and Jonona have a special gift for cleverly incorporating vintage and thrift purchases into brand-new design projects. And even though they are skilled at casting the right colors, picking the perfect wallpaper and crafting the perfect window treatments, they continue to give to give new life to other people's castoffs.
In May, you can see Senor and Jonona's work featured in my book, The Find, The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details (Clarkson Potter). Pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders.
