THE SCOUT / OPENING

A new spot in Venice

January 17, 2008

Interior designer Vanessa De Vargas has left the beach bungalow that housed her vintage furniture shop Turquoise for a different spot on Venice's hot Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Now in a space shared with Loja Designs, Turqouise's nicely priced mix of '60s Miami and midcentury Hollywood includes Henredon campaign-style end tables ($480), a dinette set in white and turquoise ($1,350) and an X-base stool, above, that she craftily re-covered with a Jonathan Adler curtain ($500). Pointing out a pair of 1930s side chairs -- the frames refinished with paint free of volatile organic compounds and their shredded denim cushions covered with reclaimed 1960s fabric -- De Vargas proudly says, "Only the staples and the thread aren't recycled." 1409 Abbot Kinney Blvd., L.A.; (310) 314-2010; www.turquoise-la.com.
