The Uptown Design District is a perfect area to find mid-century modern furnishings, décor, fine art, antiques and other gift items. I really liked:
The Shag Store, 725 N. Palm Canyon: The Shag Store is the first retail store and gallery dedicated exclusively to the artist Josh Agle aka SHAG. It is in the Uptown Design District and offers colorful prints, original art, books and other merchandise.
Christopher Anthony Ltd.: Located at 800 N. Palm Canyon Dr., this is an attractive store featuring fine art, sculpture and 20th Century furnishings.
Trina Turk: First check out Trina Turk Residential, at 895 N. Palm Canyon, with its wonderful colorful fabrics and accessories. Then go next door to check out Trina Turk and Mr. Turk menswear.
A La Mod, 886 N. Palm Canyon Dr.: A nice store featuring consignments of mid-century furniture.
