Shop Now: Garde

HIP ART, OBJETS AND DÉCOR ABOUND AT FAIRFAX’S CHICEST HOME SHOP.

Gardeshop

LA’s Garde isn’t necessarily new to the scene (it opened in 2012), but when Catt Sadler mentioned the shop as one of her favorites for gifts, we were reminded of just how much we love this little Fairfax boutique. Run by native SoCal gal Scotti Sitz, the curated storefront is a mecca for unusual home décor and personal accessories— think hand-glazed porcelain teapots, marble candle holders, gilded sconces and fur-lined accent chairs. Sitz, who previously directed retail for Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani, handles the buying herself which means her eye for subtle luxury informs all of Garde’s ever-rotating stock. It isn’t, though, a smattering of aspirational crowd pleasers— there are no Eames, Wegner or Risom in sight— but a collection of Tom Dixons, Holly Westhoffs and Faye Toogoods: under-the-radar, independent artists you’ll be grateful for knowing. It’s in those times when we’re faced with what to bring the hostess that has it all or what to gift our most discerning of friends (OK, there’s the occasional self indulgence too) that we look to Garde. It’d be hard to find better hands to throw ourselves into than Sizzi’s. Below, we’ve rounded up a few favorites available at the shop right now.
