THE SCOUT

NoHo's new home

January 25, 2007|David A. Keeps | Times Staff Writer

JEREMY PETTY and Thomas Hayes are over the hill and loving it. After selling 20th century design and vintage California paintings and sculptures at NoHo Modern in North Hollywood, the dealers have moved south to La Cienega Boulevard. "We consider ourselves more of a decorative and fine arts gallery," says Petty (above left, with Hayes), who is showing work by Northern California sculptor Don Potts and planning an exhibition of Southern California Hard Edge painter John Barbour. The new shop, which keeps the NoHo Modern name, also is showcasing a vintage leather pommel horse as a $12,000 objet d'art, as well as a handsome selection of Brazilian and European modern designs and 1960s and '70s American furniture by Edward Wormley, Milo Baughman and L.A. designers Monteverdi-Young. The store's grand opening is 6 to 10 tonight. 750 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles; (310) 360-3990.

MADE IN CALIFORNIA

Bringing a touch of Vienna to L.A.

Judith Hoffman, owner of the 20th century Hungarian and Austrian design gallery Szalon, has released the first piece in her Szalon Revival collection: the Vienna table (below, with Hoffman). Inspired by the geometric forms of Wiener Werkstatte architect Josef Hoffmann, the Vienna is an occasional table that begs to be showcased as sculpture, taking center stage in a room. The ornate but unfussy base has a strong profile in ebonized beech, and the circular top is available with silver leaf on a red or black lacquer background. "It is handmade in the Budapest studio that refinishes all the Viennese Secessionist and Hungarian Art Deco I bring to Los Angeles," Hoffman says of the piece, which sells for $4,200. The two versions can be viewed at 910 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles; (310) 657-0089.

FINDS

It's time to think global

Target's annual Global Bazaar gives shoppers a chance to buy affordable goods from someplace other than China. One of the best buys in this year's collection are these Indian quilts ($99.99 each) and pillows (from $19.99 each) that take their style cues from the luxury linens of textile designer John Robshaw. Both are cotton (with polyester fill) and reversible, with distinctive hand-blocked floral and paisley prints on each side -- a versatile way to update a bed or give a loveseat a bohemian twist. The Global

Bazaar runs until mid-February;

these items also can be ordered at www.target.com (search for "block print").
