Yard sale like no other
In WHAT had been a parking lot for a Monterey-style bungalow court in West Hollywood, four showrooms have established an alfresco design destination they have dubbed the Almont Yard. “It’s a group-effort place for us to entertain filled with good old junk,” says antiquarian Nathan Turner. “That’s junk as in j-u-n-q-u-e,” adds Joe Lucas, who opened the latest addition, Harbinger, this month with partner Parrish Chilcoat, above. Their one-room atelier sells unique pieces, decorative pillows and their own furniture designs, and it joins Turner, Claremont Furnishing Fabrics and interior designer Peter Dunham’s Hollywood at Home.
