Princess Buttercup

Final posting about my LA home decor shopping binge...last but not least, is H.D. Buttercup. A HUGE "furniture marketplace" with an ever-changing mix of anything your heart could desire. Great pricing and seriously unbeatable selection...you could easily stock a whole house with only their goods. We got there pretty close to closing time, so I tried to hurry through and see everything. We were graciously greeted and helped by George, a guy who definitely knows his stuff.

Since I sadly can't stop by their space on a regular basis, I'll be keeping tabs via their blog. Here are some pics of my favorite pieces from our visit:

Fun chairs!

Reminds me of playing Battleship with my brother when we were little...

Love this as a low sofa table and it would also make for a great place to put a TV (even though I hate exposed electronics...but if you have to do it, better to do it with a neat piece of furniture).

Little side table, kinda looks like an oil rig :)

Beautiful shell chest

The world is not flat...

The chairs I want for our office

TONS of great lighting, especially in the industrial style

I am infatuated with this sofa, and it's well-priced at $1855.
Tufting and thoughtful use of nailheads...doesn't get much better.

 Contrasting piping also trips my trigger.

Pretty globe chandeliers

Darling little slipper chairs (piping again, of course)...love that the front legs are on casters. Must admit though, I actually hate sitting in chairs with no arms.

Nice headboards, I'm guessing you can get one in just about any style/fabric/color/etc.

Lots of great vintage finds like this old drugstore sign and stool.

Your house needs jewelry too.

  I adore this and think it might be the missing ingredient from our living room.

How cool is this?!? Stylish and functional. I'd probably fully freakshow-out on it and organize my magazines in the drawers alphabetically.

Manly side table.

The Twenty Gauge section has awesome vintage American steel furniture. 

Change the fabric and you'd have yourself a sweet lucite chair!


  1. That is on my list of places to go on the west coast. I hear its fab. s it just as exciting as ABC in NY?

  2. ABC is on my list of places to go on the east coast! Everytime I'm there, it seems like the schedule is too full for shopping...but I'll be heading that way this spring, and will def go to ABC.

    In any case, H.D Buttercup is an awesome set-up and certainly worth checking out. Also, Room & Board is next door so you can kill two birds with one stone :)

  3. HD is a must see next time I am in LA. Looks like you had a blast.
