DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – Andrew Meieran, proprietor of the Edison and the developer behind the ongoing renovation of Clifton’s Cafeteria, plans to open a retail shop at Seventh and Spring streets dealing in eclectic home furnishings and accessories.
Kinetescape will occupy the corner space in the Bartlett Building, a condo property where Meieran owns the commercial slots. The shop will sell furniture, lighting and “all things unique,” Meieran said, from 1920 amusement park games and machines to Art Deco lighting fixtures and specialty paper products.
“We need to sort of focus on retail in that corridor, which is under-served and you have a remarkable community of people with remarkable spaces and no place to furnish them,” Meieran said. “You want to show people what can be done and what is available.”
Currently under construction, the shop is set to open within 45 days, he said. Prices for goods will range from $3 to $10,000, he said.
Kinetescape would join Historic Core home furnishing depots (Sub)Urban Home, at Fifth and Main streets, and I Squared at Eighth and Spring streets.
