The Viyet Guide To Silver Lake

Of all the neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Silver Lake is one of our favorites. It’s filled with mid-century homes, interesting boutiques, and some of the best restaurants in the region. Despite Silver Lake’s cool factor, the neighborhood has a laid-back feel that you don’t often find in a trendy place. Inspired by a few of our new consignors from Silver Lake, we’re bringing you our guide to must-visit local sights:

Home Goods

Lawson Fenning

Founded by Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning (two of our latest consignors!), the Silver Lake location of this well-curated shop features a mix of designs by local artisans and fab vintage finds.
Owned and operated by designer Scott Mangan (also another Viyet consignor), Rubbish Interiors has been a fixture in the Silver Lake design scene since 1994. Part interior design firm, part showroom, you’ll find a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture and décor.

You’re So Baby (Echo Park)

Located in the Echo Park neighborhood, You’re So Baby is an eclectic boutique where you’ll find effortlessly chic clothes and accessories alongside bold furniture and décor. This boundary-pushing mix is all thanks to the incredible eye of designer Tatum Kendrick, another current Viyet consignor and founder of Studio Hus.
