Outpost of the San Francisco favourite of the same name, the LA General Store carries furniture, homewares and interior goods, with a good deal of the inventory sourced from local artisans. As well as time-tested classics (think Chemex coffee makers, beeswax candles, and wooden catapults), more contemporary needs are catered to by Japanese brand Roberu and local label Joey Roth.
