We are thrilled to announce the launch of an in-store tea salon at La Boutique every Fridays and Saturdays, starting March 2nd. We will serving teas by famous French tea house Kusmi together with treats from Batter Bakery.
We are now also selling the beautifully packaged Kusmi teas, featuring a wide variety of blends such as Saint Petersburg (black tea, citrus and summer fruits and caramel), Detox (blend of mate, green tea flavored with lemon and lemongrass) and several Green Teas.
Our tea salon takes its design inspiration from Swiss Modernist tradition of form and function paired with a rustic quality that evokes cool cafes and cozy chalets. West Coast-based designer , Jude Gabbard y Muñoz sourced all of the vintage furnishings for the tea salon within California, scouring every corner for just the right pieces, including bentwood chairs by Radomsko ZMG, one of the oldest bentwood chair manufacturers in Europe. Upholstered in an an exclusive purple and gray damask the newly restored chairs perfectly echo the colors of dried lavender while complimenting the deep wood and smokey glass tops of the mid-century lounge tables. Monumental 1930s plaster lamps from the Parisian atelier of Giacometti lend an air of light hearted sophistication. Together, the furnishings pay homage to the Franco-Swiss traditions of sophisticated craft and handwork, mirroring La Boutique’s luxurious aesthetic of Art & Fashion.
