Spotted / Los Angeles, CA / Poketo
I’ve seen Poketo all over everyone’s Instagrams and I’ve dreamt of visiting for so long. I finally had a chance to during my recent getaway weekend. This concept shop is full of fun, colorful and artful objects for the home, including brands like Hedley and Bennett, House Industries, Small Spells and a whole line of products (especially artist wallets) designed by founders + husband and wife team, Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung. The store is stocked with so much goodness and it was a bit difficult to pare down my purchases to just a few things, but I settled on a glass sake set and some of these darling little notebooks. Besides a retail shop, the space also hosts a number of art exhibits, events and workshops with some of the best talent out there. Poketo recently opened up a second shop at The Line Hotel in the Koreatown part of L.A. There was also a recent pop-up here at home in San Francisco, but I’m bummed I missed that.
