Too-cool-for-school interiors firm Consort debuts a storefront for H'Wood's millennial movers and shakers.
State of the art! “Consort brings the playfully chic vibe fashion lovers crave to fill a wide-open void in today’s décor market,” says cofounder Mat Sanders of his art-meets-fashion hot shop, which spills over three distinct rooms on Melrose Avenue.
Powerhouse interior designers Mat Sanders, 34, and Brandon Quattrone, 29, both sporting heavyweight design résumés (Sanders is the editor-at-large for MyDomaine, and Quattrone uses his architecture background to help design large-scale projects, such as Jay Z’s Barclays Center, in Brooklyn), are known for decking out the LA homes of young (hot) Hollywood clients (Jessica Alba, Nina Dobrev, et al.). To launch their first-ever storefront, the duo added a third wheel, LA-based former gallerist-turned-art curator Marie Goble, 31, who helps source the city for the shop’s unique finds, including playful furniture, home objects, and art.
On Consort’s rarefied roster of LA-based artisans are Desanka Fasiska, whose custom ceramics are handmade in Laurel Canyon; A-list stylist and interior designer Estee Stanley, who offers wares such as a standout minimalist coffee table; and Katie Kimmel (daughter of Jimmy), who created an exclusive line of witty objets d’art. The three rooms of the 2,000-square-foot space bring to life the eclectic mix of colorful objects and furniture from the firm’s popular online shop—like a perfectly made-up/unmade LA home. “We’re very excited to curate a more vibrant, fashion-forward look for designers and [design] enthusiasts alike,” says Sanders. LA’s style set is taking note. 6918 Melrose Ave., LA, 323-930-5688
