This week’s Destination Design takes us to one of my favorite spots in Los Angeles. Located on La Brea in an historic building dating back to 1928, that in true Hollywood style, it boasts it’s own famous past. According to Eater LA, Charlie Chaplin built the Spanish style brick building, complete with gothic arches, to be used as an office building. It changed hands through a divorce, was once used as a shopping mall, and later became the spot where La Brea Bakery (you might be familiar with their bread sold in many grocery stores) was born. A loving restoration by Republique’s owners brought this amazing building back to it’s original glory. The design is impeccable with gorgeous tiles, rustic wood tables, exposed brick…it is just stunning. It is such a beautiful and unique place you want to gather there. Throw in the added bonus of some of the best French-bistro inspired food outside of France, and you just want to move in. Enjoy this peek into Republique.
