Fifteen years ago, Jamie Rosenthal opened her lifestyle store,  Lost & Found , in what she dubs “a gritty, urban sliver of Hollywood proper.” The venture began as a single shopfront—a documentary filmmaker turned stylist, Jamie wanted to shine a light on boutique clothing lines and housewares made by unknown studios. Gradually, Lost & Found expanded into the stores around it; it now occupies a whole block, offering a mix of  hard-to-find,   small-batch designs sourced from across the globe. And yet it remains a bit out of the way and semi-secret. But not for much longer. Anthropologie just unveiled its new  Shop in Shop  project, and Jamie was asked to  be the first retailer to create a handpicked home collection. T he mandate was “to see the world through my eyes,” she tells us. "In the same way that we have the farm-to-table movement that celebrates the farmer and chef, I'm interested in who creates these pieces and how they make their way from around the world into our everyday lives. This is the story I want to tell.” Here's a sampling. Above: Jamie collaborated with designer and art director Nelson Sepulveda to create the  Lost & Found Chef's Canister  made of stoneware and olive wood; $50. Above: Lost & Found Shibori Napkins  are 18.5-inch squares hand-dyed by West Africa textile specialists Tensira; $24.   Above: The 40-inch-tall  Lost & Found Woven Basket  is made by Medina Mercantile, a company that works with small weaving initiatives around the world; $298 Above:  Lost & Found Glass Bottles  by Nelson Sepulveda range from $68 to $78.    Above: The  Lost & Found Hanging Macrame Planter  is by up-and-coming Berlin design studio Llot Llov. It's made of polypropylene, steel, and glass; $998. Above:  Lost & Found Olivewood Serving Trays  by Nelson Sepulveda are $48 for the small and $68 for the large. Above: The  Lost & Found Woven Bench  is 60 inches wide and has a woven string seat; $598. Above: The stoneware  Lost & Found Matte Tumbler , another design by Nelson Sepulveda, is $14.   Above: Ma de of plastic and cotton, the  Lost & Found Knotted Fringe Mat  is 51.25 inches long and available in sapphire (shown), blue ,  green, and rose; $40.  Go to  Anthropologie  for the full Lost & Found collection. And for more of Jamie's finds, see our posts on Lost & Found's  Deck Furniture , Michele Keeler Towels  and Dip-Dyed Towels from Japan .
