An Afternoon with Kishani Perera

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Kishani Perera and her 17 (yes 17!) year old pup, Bob, while I was in California.  We met up at her local LA shop, Rummage where I got a little private tour.  Her shop is filled with beautiful treasures that she has curated herself.  I was immediately drawn to her amazing collection of vintage lamps.  Some women collect shoes, Kishani collects lamps.  

Love the detail trim on this shade.

These yellow beauties really stand out with the black shades.

  This brass one with a gray drum shade was by far my favorite.  The texture and patina was to die for!

She had other beautiful lighting pieces.  Like these chandeliers:

Loved this metal one:

And this wooden beaded one:

A cute yellow bamboo one:

And then there was the wall sconces:

A great way to modernize a pair of traditional sconces- add these round candle bulbs instead of the traditional candelabra style.

There were amazing accessories hidden in every corner of her shop:
These jade green & gold boxes really wanted to come home with me.

Beautiful tea/coffee service

Love these vintage plastic tumblers.  Arent the colors perfection?

Great furniture pieces as well:
Love the brass knobs on this piece.

A brass & glass piece that would make a great bar or console table.

A soft charcoal gray wingback:

I feel in love with this greek key detailed coffee table:

The detail on the legs…..

After my little tour Kishani, Bob (yes he goes everywhere with her- its so sweet) headed down the street to a local tea shop. We chatted all things design.

Unfortunately this is the only shot I have of Bob.  He was fast asleep in her lap.  What a life, right?

Kishani’s shop Rummage is also on-line so if you see anything you like you can purchase it here.  

Thank you Kishani for such a lovely afternoon!  
And stay tuned for a “Coffee With” Series with Kishani soon!
