B. David Levine And Una Malan Open Their Doors To Their New Showrooms

You may not need another reason to linger within the La Cienega Design Quarter, but we’ve got a good one. Actually, two. New showrooms for B. David Levine and Una Malan recently threw open their doors within a block of each other on either side of Willoughby Avenue. For Levine, who’s operated out of Studio City for the past decade, the new multiroom space is a dream realized. A longtime dealer and collector of high-end Italian furnishings and accessories, he has made his atelier an ode to cutting-edge brands rarely seen outside of Salone del Mobile Milano. “We’re bringing the best of the best— things that have not been brought to the U.S. and certainly have not been brought to the West Coast,” says Levine. Malan, on the other hand, firmly established herself on La Cienega two years ago within a historic John Elgin Woolf building and this year snapped up a second spot two doors down. Her latest showroom, which is open and contemporary in stark contrast to her cozier 1930s-era original, focuses on beautiful fabrics. “We’re taking on Rose Uniacke from the U.K., a lovely set from Designs of the Time from Belgium and Logan Montgomery Textiles’ first indoor-outdoor fabric,” she shares.
