Design Datebook: June 5–6


What events not to miss this weekend, from sales to exhibitions to open houses.

Shop: SALE




Spring Cleaning Sale at Charles De Lisle Workshop
It’s spring cleaning time for CH+D Award–winning designer Charles de Lisle of Charles de Lisle Workshop, which means one heck of a sidewalk sale this Saturday. He promises “storage, vintage furniture, lighting, great fabric, office supplies, and the usual yard sale bric-a-brac” at 643 Seventh Street.  Stop by from 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

Bauer Pottery Showroom Sale
This weekend Bauer Pottery is holding a sale at their L.A. showroom. Get great deals on Bauer Pottery and Russel Wright American Modern seconds, and if you stop by on Saturday make sure to make a pit stop at the Comfort Truck, the kitchen on wheels of chef Brian Hill, which will be parked outside.






Double Feature at Rare Device
On Friday night, San Francisco’s Rare Device boutique and gallery celebrates the opening of a double exhibition. “Shipshape” by San Francisco artist Judith Zissman confronts the role of the artist as war reporter at specific moments of history, while “Breaking the Spine,” focuses on altered books, words, and letters.

Public Art at Ernst & Young

Join artist Ruth Pastine and gallery director Edward Cella on an informative tour of the artist’s newest public commission, Limitless.  Gracing two adjoining lobbies of the Ernst & Young Plaza in downtown Los Angeles, the project consists of eight large-format, oil-on-canvas paintings arranged in four diptychs on adjacent walls. Meet up at 735 South Figueroa Street at 1 p.m on Saturday.


A. Quincy Jones On the Market
Check out this 10,000-square-foot modernist retreat designed by iconic architect A. Quincy Jones in 1950. Located in L.A.’s Crestwood Hills, the 3-bedroom, almost-2-bath (the listing says 1.75—that’s a new fraction to me) house has been updated with generous patios and a pool, while still maintaining its period-perfect style. Open this Sunday, 2 p.m.–5 p.m. and asking $1,899,000.
