“In our minds, L.A. was a natural fit for our next Serena & Lily store. We choose locations that speak to a distinct edge of our brand, and the place then gives context to our brand in a new light. We chose West Hollywood because it is a perfect fit for the L.A. story that we want to tell, which will be distinct to this community and environment,” shared Dugan.
“West Hollywood is the ‘Interior Design Center of Los Angeles,’” said Kanter. “There are so many great things happening in home design in that district right now, so we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”
Serena & Lily Design Shop is located at 8422 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles.
