Is it just me, or does browsing in a museum gift shops make you feel smarter and more sophisticated?
This past weekend we toured Los Angeles' Walt Disney Concert Hall (designed by starchitect Frank Gehry and home to the L.A. Philharmonic) and stopped by the gift shop. It did not disappoint -and reminded me of the wonderful merchandise these curated stores represent. Special & stylish.
The curvy, corrugated cardboard chair is designed by Frank Gerhy and echos the curves and originality of the concert hall itself. Swoon-worthy.

The armchair below is made from wine corks!
The natural wood reflects the warm-toned, wooden elements used throughout the Music Center. This transistor radio is also a nifty mini-safe.
Got a minute?
These vases are beautiful even without flowers!
