Urban Renewal: Laurel Hardware in Los Angeles
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
A former hardware store in LA is transformed into a low-key, high-style dining venue. Sam Marshall, a member of the design team behind Gjelina , was responsible for the industrial-glamorous interior (we especially like the wallpapered ceiling). "We want to make it a neighborhood restaurant and keep that history going," according to manager John Rankin. For more information, go to Laurel Hardware .
