Ethnic arts in Trove's new Laguna Beach location

Primitive_ethno_TROVE
Trove, the Laguna Beach design store known for unconventional antiques, industrial and rustic furniture, and contemporary housewares is celebrating its recent relocation with "Vanishing Cultures," a display of international arts and artifacts.

Textiles_TROVE"We've more than doubled our size," says Heather Lee, co-owner with husband Bobby Lee. The goal of this, the third expansion of Trove since it opened in 2004, is to create "an environment that combines items that have been loved and used over the years with pieces that resonate with our soul."

Set in Trove's stripped down, cinder-block and wood-paneled new space, the upcoming display mixes Continental antiques with Asian objects.

Among them: an 18th century Burmese Buddha, a bronze Vietnamese kettle and a bronze pot from Laos with a lizard and spider motif. 

The textile on the antique chaise, above, a Naga tribe headhunter cloth from Burma, is part of a large collection of textiles, right.

Ethnographic art collector Bill Lanz will speak at the opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday.

370 Ocean Ave., Laguna Beach; (949) 376 4640.
