CB2 to lure the budget-modern masses to renovated Santa Monica Place

July 28, 2010 |  7:36 am

Cb2-pablo-side-table When the newly renovated Santa Monica Place shopping mall opens next week, CB2 will be the sole new home furnishings retailer among the nearly 60 shops and restaurants. Fewer distractions while the Cult of CB2 absorbs the fall collection, perhaps?

Cb2-Hive-Storage New pieces on display will include the Pablo side tables ($129 for a set of three), right, whose enameled iron tray tops are interchangeable; and the stacking Hive storage units ($79.95 for each three-slot piece), below right.

CB2 Director Marta Calle declared the store opening in West Hollywood last year "a wonderful success." Enough locals embraced the budget-minded offshoot of Crate & Barrel that the chain moved forward with a second store. The Santa Monica Place location will be two stories but only slightly larger than the West Hollywood site, pictured above.

In conjunction with the Aug. 6 grand opening, CB2 will donate 5% of the Santa Monica store's opening weekend sales to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.
