The Deal: Bebop Design's moving sale features midcentury furniture, lamps and posters

Bebop furniture store sale

Bebop Design in Silver Lake offered an unusual selection of midcentury home furnishings in a small store that couldn't quite vanquish the three rules of retail: location, location, location. I drove by it for months before spotting some slam-on-the-brakes items out front on the sidewalk.

Come April, the two owners -- Parisian antiques dealer Remi Loca and Scottish architecture student Susy Bell -- will move Bebop Design from its current address on the all-but-vanished vintage furniture strip of Rowena Avenue to the more bustling Sunset Junction area. Bebop will join other dealers in a 4,000-square-foot market on Santa Monica Boulevard.

In preparation for moving day, the store is offering 15% off selected merchandise through March. The regular retail prices, quoted here, are already fairly reasonable: The circular Art Deco-era table, above left, is $450. The original poster for an Alexander Calder exhibition in Paris is $250. The midcentury American oak desk, above right, is $950, and the 1950s iron chairs with original upholstery by designer Tony Paul are $750 for a set of four. 

See more of the French and American designs on sale after the jump.

Bebop Design, 2874 Rowena Ave., Silver Lake. (323) 770-1901.
