Partners Trust’s Openhouse, a community outpost and experience-based retail concept located on Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica, has gained significant momentum since its inception in 2016. Featuring seasonal pop-up exhibits and interior installations by some of Los Angeles’ foremost interior design tastemakers, the storefront has established a camaraderie among artisans and the Santa Monica community. Partners Trust is now excited to announce the outpost’s fourth installation to transition into the space on May 9: La Maison Interior Design.
La Maison Interior Design will follow the past curations of Ariel Fox Design, Hermosa Design and The Hängar, bringing with it a new aesthetic and donating 10 percent of proceeds to the Partners Trust Charitable Giving Fund.
Mitra Shahi of La Maison Interior Design, a boutique full-service design company, creates interiors rooted in tradition, personality and quality. She approaches each project with the goal of capturing her client’s essence and creating timeless spaces.
In this new Openhouse installation, Mitra intends to bring in elements from the beach with contemporary touches. While La Maison deals with construction management in addition to interior design, Mitra will utilize the Partners Trust space to focus solely on creating a complete, comfortable, and beachy one-stop shop for interior needs. A variety of items will be for sale, ranging from a new collection of sofas to small gift items, each piece meticulously handpicked and exclusively distinct.
As a turnkey firm that assists clients with all aspects of design, inclusive of building, interiors, and landscaping, La Maison works with clients from the ground up. Mitra and her team hope to collaborate with Associates to be an excellent service to both members of Partners Trust and their clients. Once settled, Mitra plans to host an Openhouse mixer to meet neighbors and introduce the company to the local community, Partners Trust associates, clients, friends and family.
Mitra’s holistic approach to design, integrating custom items, traditional influences, unexpected colors and bold patterns, creates an end product that is impeccably tailored or exquisitely worn in. Either way, it is unmistakably home – much like we expect her Openhouse curation to be.
