The Agenda: L’Eclaireur West Hollywood, Lokoya Estate, and Heath Ceramics Annual SaleAuthor:Allison McCarthy
Design is at the heart of French avant-garde brand L’Eclaireur’s first U.S. outpost. Housed in a Haussmann-style manse in WeHo (formerly the flagship of celebrity florist David Jones), the three-story retail concept is a gallery-meets-boutique of sorts, with such iconic offerings as the late Zaha Hadid’s stainless steel “Z” chair, handblown Venetian lamps by Aristide Najean, and Fornasetti galore.
When: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday
Where: 450 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood
This month, Lokoya opens the doors to its historic 77-acre property in Napa Valley, as an appointment-only tasting room for serious wine connoisseurs to sample the winery’s four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons (from four of the valley’s most renowned mountain appellations: Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain, Diamond Mountain, and Spring Mountain). Perched atop the secluded and heavily forested Spring Mountain, the interiors have been remodeled by famed architect Howard Backen. Backen has enhanced the structure’s ornate architectural features (soaring concrete ceilings, textured stone walls, stone columns, and gothic windows) with dramatic lighting and a sleek, modern design—including a custom handblown glass chandelier, Kravet sofas, and Baker lounge chairs.
When: Tastings by appointment only
Where: 3787 Spring Mountain Rd., St. Helena
Clear your calendars: Heath’s annual sale is coming this weekend. Showroom shoppers will enjoy 20 percent off the winter seasonal collection, Heath’s classic red line, the Tartine collection, the brand new Heath + Stein collection of modern work bags, and more. (Online shoppers get 15 percent off and free shipping on orders over $125.) And if you’re just browsing, there’s more in store for you, too. New tours and workshops include First Look, a preview of Heath’s new clay and sewing studios. And there’s always the ever popular bud vase workshop (which typically sells out in hours), a wreath-making workshop in L.A., and a printmaking demo by Aesthetic Union in SF.

The Paris-born Laure Hèriard Dubreuil has recently opened her first California outpost of The Webster, the South Beach boutique that brought fashion-forward apparel to bikini central. Outfitted with vintage furniture by Milo Baughman and Kazuhide Takahama, the shop screams boho luxe with mint green terrazzo marble floors, clothing racks made of Rosso Levanto marble and antique brass, plus art by California natives Dennis Hopper and Aaron Young. Oh, and lest we forget about the fashion—designers lining racks and shelves include Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Raf Simons, and Provenza Schouler.
When: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Mon. – Fri.; 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Sat.; 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sun.

Bay Area native and fashion designer Erin Fetherston recently launched a home collection in collaboration with interior designer and Fragments Identity founder Tammy Price. The two met while Tammy was outfitting Erin’s new L.A. home. Think earthy elegance that’s both refined and relaxed—the quintessential California style—in the form of black-and-white striped pillows, pom-pom trimmed throws, and upholstered ottomans in natural mudcloth and flax linen.
