(West Hollywood, CA: March 26, 2008) The LA Report was very impressed with Ku Ambiance, a new unique store/showroom/designspace, located just a block east of the PDC (a.k.a. the Pacific Design Center, or the Blue Whale to some insiders), where the 2008 edition of Westweek kicked off today. Many Westweekers attended tonight's festive party at the new space, which lasted almost till midnight and featured wonderful sushi as well as delectable desserts.
Ku Ambiance just launched at the recent CA BOOM design/architecture show, and their space (located on Huntley, a few feet north of Melrose) has an open Asian-themed feel, featuring an eclectic assortment of beautiful items, from custom commodes to cool clothes to a varied array of handmade vessels and porcelain creations. (Oh, and cute bobbing-head tigers; one man proudly showed off a pair as he departed.) Unique is the key word here, as all of the items at Ku Ambiance are made in limited quantities and hence superior quality and craftsmanship. Every design/fashion/art professional should definitely check out this wonderful new addition to the Melrose design district.
