LA side trips

Posted by on 1/21/14 at 05:31pm

Last year, I escaped to Venice Beach, California for a prenatal workshop with my favorite yoga teacher. My sojourn by the sea consisted of morning yoga classes and afternoons walks by the sea with a few further away excursions. One highlight was a visit to dosa 818. dosa is a clothing, accessories + housewares line designed by Christina Kim. I’ve admired Christina’s designs for a while now and make a point of stopping by Tienda M whenever I am in Marfa. The (appointment only) studio in LA takes up the entire 7th floor of the Wurlitzer Building, a beautiful old building at 850 South Broadway…

It’s a light-filled, wide open space with low tables presenting dosa ware and all sorts of other inspiring objects.

Christina loves to use papel picado to create ceilings or ‘clouds’ of texture and is known for her use of recycled fiber and traditional techniques from artisans around the world…
