Love, Love, Loving Thrive Decor

I get a lot of castings on Beverly Boulevard, near where all the furniture shops are located– like between La Brea and Fairfax. I’ve always wanted to go into Thrive Decor but always seem to be in too much of a rush. When I make it back, they’re usually closed (they close between 4-6 most evenings.)
Well, as soon as I walked in for the first time, I was hooked.

A little background- I got into furniture because I started collecting vintage clothes while living just outside of San Francisco in Berkeley. Not like wear every day vintage clothes (though I loved those, too) but designer-sample-with-the-tags-still-on vintage clothes. My collection didn’t get too big (hey, you can’t wear them!) but I found myself gravitating to the purses, costume jewelry, and vintage china and crystal glasses in these boutiques.

I bought a set of champagne glasses with matching cordial glasses, and my love of vintage home stuff has grown from there.

Okay, back to Thrive.

This place made me feel like a kid in a candy store. Their vintage crystal is in all kinds of colors, and they have whatever you might want. They have some beautiful chairs (you know about my “thing” for chairs), gorgeous light fixtures, a lot of art, and gilded EVERYTHING! Yes, it is expensive. Yes, it is out of a rehabbers price range, but it is worth blogging about because this is the kind of stuff you get inspiration from… or save up to buy if you want a real treat.

Some of my favorites:

Having a little fun with a giant gilded mirror (yes, this would be in the closet of the dream house I'm designing in my imagination).

Pink. Crystal. Need I say more?

More crystal and some plates.

I love a wingback, and this fabric... perfection.

I drooled over these chairs for at least five minutes before exploring the shop.

Must have drooled over these chairs for at least five minutes before exploring the shop. They just feel elegant.
