Rummage, a new L.A. boutique from interior designer Kishani Perera, set to open

Rummage

On June 10, Los Angeles interior designer Kishani Perera will open her first boutique, Rummage, a colorful mix of the high end and low.

Kishani During a sneak peak of Rummage, I spotted vintage Wheaton bottles ($10 to $30 apiece) displayed with 1940s cane chairs ($5,000 for a pair), pillows ($95 to $200 each), an eclectic collection of vintage rugs (beginning at $900) and thrift-store paintings ($300 to $2,500).

Kishani Perera, who counts actresses Molly Sims and Kate Bosworth as clients, says she has spent so much time building her interiors business that she has missed being a collector. “I love finding gems no one else sees,” says the designer, pictured at right.

Rummage, which takes over a space formerly occupied by Specific, also will serve as a showroom for Perera's furniture collection. The line includes handmade zinc tables, concrete planters and tables, a magical iron chandelier tree and a one-of-a-kind vintage mannequin-turned-lamp.

“Levity,” Perera said, “is important.”

7374 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 935-5483.
