If antique stores make you think of dusty candelabras and velvet Elvis paintings, you need to visit Galerie Half to discover the modern, curated, design-centric version of antiques.  Located on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, Galerie Half is the beautiful brainchild of Cliff Fong and Cameron Smith. Their space flawlessly combines various styles with its careful collection of 20th century furnishings and American & European antiques.  

Shopping for antiques can often feel overwhelming because of the sheer amount of furniture, artifacts, and home goods found in most shops.  Galerie Half has a wonderful sense of discernment and that’s evident from the moment you enter their store.  It’s not crammed with a random assortment of items instead it’s a showroom that spotlights artful and modern pieces that reflect the craft of design.  We’ve posted a few of our favorite items below to give you an idea of their perspective.

Galerie Half has been lauded on the pages of Vogue, Architectural Digest, New York Times, and Details magazine.  Next time you’re in LA, a visit to their store should be mandatory and be sure to check out their latest inventory on their 1st Dibs page.
