While I'm waiting for the itchy and scratchy show to subside I thought I would revisit a store that I did a story on for Apartment Therapy. Juxtaposition Home is a store on the Newport Coast that has a great selection of new, vintage, quirky, odd and lovely things.
I'll probably get an email from them telling me to pull this post down because they were SUPER crazed about the whole photo thing. The employees were nazi's until the owner gave me permission to come back with my camera [it was because of AT that she said yes].
The store is a fantastic mixture of new upholstery furniture, custom fabrics, vintage furniture, new and old books, great funky art, lighting and odd things from 60's doctor offices. I would assume by the quality and oddness of their finds that they do some shopping in France and ship things over. In addition to their goods, the space itself is beautiful. Don't miss the giant 5ft barn fans that line the 20+ft ceilings. Oddly, I was most impressed by those and the enormous gears they had hanging around the store, some 4ft in diameter, made of wood and metal.
If you're in the Orange County area or feel like taking a day trip, the store is beautifully located on PCH across the street from the ocean, sandwiched between Laguna Beach and Newport/Corona Del Mar. Take a friend and then plan on going to lunch after down road in one of the beach towns near by.
Price tags reflect the high rent location but if you're looking for something really unique I can recommend the store.
