Hemingway and Pickett opened in 2011, in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles,
selling art, design and small furniture products for the home – with an emphasis on
new items from Australia (as well as local finds).
The name is taken from my grandfather’s old Melbourne business, that was begun by
his grandfather as a small barber shop on Sydney Rd in 1888 and grew into a
large distribution network for stores of all kinds.
Hemingway and Pickett offers design products and art exclusive to our store.
Hand-crafted pottery, jewelry, photography, books, music, paper goods, small furnishings,
kitchenware and whatever else we believe can improve and enlighten anyone’s life and home.
All in an original environment, with a slightly more masculine sensibility than most
Los Angeles home, gift and design stores. The interior ceiling, shelves and "archways" are
constructed using reclaimed wood from shipping pallets.
Stay in touch via the mailing list for our special events, guest speakers and gallery shows.
Hemingway and Pickett is not about people’s homes or lives being more perfect,
it is about them being more interesting. Or, as William Morris (founder of the Arts n Crafts
movement at the turn of the 20th century) so neatly put it:
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
I hope to do my forefathers proud.
