Shopper’s Diary: Luxury Crafts at Stahl + Band in Venice, CA

We’ve got a new reason to head straight to Abbot Kinney in LA: Stahl + Band is a recently opened shop from creative director and interior designer Jeffery Molter, who describes it as “equal parts showroom and gallery.” Molter overhauled the space, the former studio of actor Dennis Hopper, and brought in an array of not-seen-everywhere luxury crafts, furniture, and lighting from a range of global artists and makers. Join us for a tour.
