things we love: A+R Store

A+R Store is a superb destination for great design. Their tag line is "Global Design. Edited." and that's exactly what you will find. An excellently curated selection of the very best in design for your home- indoor, outdoor, your kids, gadgets, gifts, even jewelry. The store launched in L.A. in 2005, went online in 2006 and has been growing ever since. Check it out to find everything from String Shelving to an amazing outdoor foosball table from RS Barcelona. I really love the Design Futsal [Soccer] Balls from Idea International and not just because $1 from each ball sold goes to clear land mines in Cambodia. A tiny selection of their wide range of goodies follow. You can find A+R at A+R West in Venice, CA, A+R East in Los Angeles, CA or online at
