A. Kinney Court is Quite a Spectacle!

Oh how I love Venice and all it's funky ways! That's why I was super excited when I had the chance to write about this fabulous new boutique for Design Milk!
One of the newest additions to the ever-changing Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice, CA, is A. Kinney Court, “a concept fashion boutique gallery” opened by Garrett Leight, a native of Venice, and the son of the Oliver Peoples eyewear founder Larry Leight. When in Venice you cannot help but be inspired by the surf, sand, and skate culture. Ilan Dei Studio, located just blocks from the shop, no doubt tapped into these sources of inspiration for this project as well as taking inspiration from the Eames bent plywood processes and skateboard construction. Ilan Dei Studio not only designed, but fabricated and constructed this energetic interior.
The display walls remind me of the view down into the deep bowls of the new Venice Skate Park.

Check out my entire article over on Design Milk!
