The Scout: Ashland & Hill is moving, you are saving
After 15 years of creating custom upholstery and furniture for celebrity clients, Ashland & Hill on Main Street in Santa Monica is relocating. To Texas. What that means for you: Markdowns through the end of July, including up to 50% savings on floor-model sofas, tables and chairs. Designer-owner Deborah Thiras also has a great eye for accessories, such as Robert Indiana-inspired "LOVE" pillows (photo after the jump) and these dramatic vessels by San Diego craftsman Ed Thompson. Although they appear to be patinated bronze, the bowls and vases are actually wheel-thrown and hand-carved stoneware. Originally $85 to $185, they're now on sale for $65 to $160.
One of the enduring icons of mid-1960s Pop Art, Robert Indiana's "LOVE" design has been used for Christmas cards, public sculptures, paperweights and postage stamps. This crafty interpretation is marked down to $75 from $95 at Ashland & Hill in Santa Monica.
