If you find yourself in the Newport Beach area of California,  it is well worth your time to stop in to visit a great store called Juxtaposition.

juxtaposition |ˌjəkstəpəˈziSHən|(noun)

DEFINITION: The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect: the juxtaposition of these two images.

By definition, this store is staged to express the beauty of contrasting objects. Timeless in its design, I poured over every vignette to gain design inspiration. Take a look at what I found during my visit.

I suspect this store changes often, so visit and see what you discover, then let me know!

As the sign suggest outside the front entry, give the unique store a chance, rather than relying on the chain stores to feed your design fix.
