Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe’s NK Shop in Los Angeles (above)
Went to a fab store opening a few weeks back. Quite fab indeed.
Interior designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe of Nickey Kehoe Inc. opened their NK Shop on Highland Ave in Los Angeles (just north of Melrose). October 28th was the opening night for this delightful high end home furnishings shop…and the evening was truly a delight.
The store feels wonderfully vintage chic…distinctive treasures from around the world housed in a raw warehouse-like space. Even on opening night, filled with quite a colorful crowd, I could see that each item in the NK Shop was carefully chosen – from original designs, to vintage or acquired furniture and home accessories. All with a distinct personality…charmed, relaxed, paying stylish homage to the past (whether it be the 1970’s, midcentury or beyond) and all coming together to create a store and feeling that is ultimately eclectic and so design forward.
The store was crowded (jam packed actually) with L.A.’s design community (I think that is who they were…hee hee). I brought my fashion designer friend Melissa Masse and met up with my cute friend Katy Daly (she’s the one with the green dining room) who is also in the interior design business…just two of L.A.’s creative types who were ogling over all of what NK Shop had to offer (oh btw…for those of you care…noticed that actress Natalie Portman was in the room too…)

NK Shop’s outdoor foyer is casually appointed with planters and decorative wall pieces and a wonderful wood console table (above)
On the shop floor, a 1940’s settee upholstered in green hemp linen and Moroccan rug ($1800) sits next to a 1970’s tubular steel and black leather armchair ($1200) to create a compelling and comfy looking sitting area (above)
These two arm chairs are my favorite…according to Todd, these tufted upholstered classics come straight from Paris! (above)
NK Shop is a “must” if you live here or are ever visiting town…by the way, it is conveniently located just across the street from the fantastic Mozza and Mozza Pizza, Mario Batali and Nancy Silverton’s famed eateries. Across the street! I emphasize location because I would like to point out that Melissa and I picked up our car from valet at NK Shop and then drove ACROSS the street to Mozza and valet parked there…oh so L.A…we did have a moment of pause though (a very short moment) and then justified that valet would be closing soon at NK Shop so we had to drive…right?…hmmmm…note, when we left Mozza, valet was still open at NK Shop….hmmmm again.
