La Cienega Design Quarter

For more than half a century, the La Cienega Design Quarter has been the destination for sophisticated shoppers looking for top quality design.

This legendary district, with its romantic courtyards, alluring windows and treasure troves of antiques, furniture, lighting, fabrics, stone, rugs, accessories and art, is known as the “shopping heart” and workplace of the interior design profession. Having expanded to include Melrose Avenue to the west and to the east of La Cienega and side by side with some of L.A.’s most glamorous restaurants, fashion boutiques and salons, the LCDQ is the West Coast style destination for all.
