The Agenda: Rain Room, Consort Design, and Haskell Collection



Rain Room at LACMA

We’ve got Restoration Hardware to thank for bringing London-based artist collective Random International’s mesmerizing work across the pond and over to the West Coast. The much-talked-about immersive installation recreates a carefully choreographed rain storm indoors, which stops the moment human movement is detected. Advance tickets are required and are currently sold out to everyone except members, but extended hours will be announced shortly. Keep your eyes out and be ready to purchase at a moment’s notice—this is one exhibit you definitely don’t want to miss.  

When: Through Sun. 3/6/16  

Where: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles



Jay Jeffers Collection for Arteriors 

Look no further than Jay Jeffers for gift inspiration this holiday season. The beloved Bay Area designer’s recently launched collection of entertaining accessories—for Arteriors, leading provider of luxury lighting and decorative accessories—fits the bill for your most discerning and design savvy friends and family. Replete with sophisticated cocktail shakers, ice buckets, and serving trays, each piece has just the right amount of golden touch. 

When: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Mon.–Fri.   

Where: Available online and at Jay Jeffers – THE STORE, 1035 Post St., San Francisco 

Consort Design



Consort Design

Opening the doors to its first brick and mortar this weekend is A-list design firm Consort, a favorite among LA celebs like Jessica Alba and blog star Chiara Ferragni. Located on a stylish stretch of gallery row, the 2,000-square-foot space will be neighbors with home decor faves like Galerie Half and Reform and will offer a mix of vintage, modern, and custom furniture, accessories, and decor from the likes of Estee Stanley, Sabin, and Parachute Home. We’d call it another clever excuse for “holiday” shopping. 

When: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Mon.–Sat.  

Where: 6918 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles



Weekend at Sinatra’s 

Book a quick weekend getaway before holiday mayhem begins. The swanky Riviera Palm Springs rings in the 100th birthday of its property’s most frequent Rat Pack visitor with a weekend of themed activities, including a night of Champagne and dancing to Sinatra and Martin tunes, pool parties, and a special slideshow of vintage Palm Springs. Rooms start at $109/night.  

When: Fri. 12/11 – Sun. 12/13   

Where: Riviera Palm Springs, 1600 North Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs



Haskell Collection 

After five years in the online marketplace, Haskell Collection opens its very own brick and mortar in the form of a wood-clad shop that was originally built as a home in the 1940s. Much like the brand’s signature line of powder-coated tables and chairs, the mix of custom and refurbished vintage pieces and accessories are fabricated and finished by hand using local, sustainable materials for eco-minded shoppers. 

When: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tues.–Sat. 

Where: 445 E. 17th St., Costa Mesa
