Our Place, which describes itself as a mission-driven kitchenware brand, has opened its first-ever retail store in the brand’s hometown of Los Angeles. The specialty retailer also said it plans to open a second locale in the city by year-end but did not disclose specifics on its timing or location.

The brand’s store first store is in the oceanfront neighborhood of Venice Beach. Designed by Our Place in partnership with creative agency Mythology and design firm Ringo Studio, the interiors incorporate textures, patterns and colors to feel like an inviting home.

The space is lined with limewash plaster walls, and accented with smooth, recycled tiles in jewel tones and bright pastels throughout. A bespoke arched shelving display showcases Our Place’s signature colorways, and a streamlined suite of products is displayed throughout the store.

Our Place Venice Beach also features the Our Place Cafe, serving tea, boba, haldi doodh (turmeric latte), and other culturally rooted beverages. A front nook, color-drenched in Our Place’s signature Spice shade, provides a place to enjoy a drink with friends. There is also a backyard with stadium and cafe seating that will host food-related events, book launches, film screenings and more.

“When we started Our Place, we knew it was about so much more than kitchenware,” Shiza Shahid, Co-Founder of Our Place, said in a news release. “We wanted to create a place that brought people together over the joy of cooking, and now, we are able to bring everyone into this physical space to make even deeper connections. This store is truly a place by and for us and our community.”
