Well there’s more to “La Brea” than the “tarpits” – and more than just a play on “pop culture” words at “Lawrence of Labrea” a Los Angeles rug showroom run by David Nourafshan. They are proud members of the Set Decorators Society of America and the American Society of Interior Designers and for 22 years or so have provided customers with the best available rugs-from antique to modern.
Their showroom is packed with stunning merchandise and if you visit their website you will be drooling. I particularly love the “Chinese Art Deco” pieces. Turkish and Moroccan pieces are also included in their “antique” collection.
But their website is no less impressive and from there you can shop the beautiful pieces that they offer “no interest financing” on. To view their website and collections follow the link here: “Lawrence of Labrea, Inc” – Fashion Rugs From Antique to Modern
You will be glad you did!
Well, after years of procrastination, I finally found and decided on a use for some gorgeous sequin fabric which was described to me when I bought it as being from “Dubai” – that fascinating place of wealth that has a tall building that looks like a sailboat on it’s side.
The fabric is essentially the sequin flowers all attached and ready to be cut apart into whatever applique shape you need. The beads are antique Czech bought by my mother back in the old bead and milinary district in NYC in the late 60’s or early 70’s. One lot is bronze brown and the other is that Purple Bronze with Peacock color spectrum. It will be so neat to finish what will eventually be a belly dance belt.
Just wanted to share a photo of it with you while we work on the April Issue of the magazine. We are starting small with just a few articles but hope it will grow from there. The new issue should be ready by next week. We are starting up with nothing-just some affiliate links in hopes of some revenue. Anyone who wishes to advertise with the magazine please let us know by calling our sales office at (336)710-3623. Thank You, Aziza, Editor in Chief.
