I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but I’m certainly a sucker for beautiful design. Los Angeles based chocolatier Jonathan Graham, founder of designer chocolate brand Compartés, teamed up with Kelly Wearstler for a newly designed shop in Century City. The result is one of the most elegant candy stores I’ve ever seen, made of antique brass and imported Italian marble everywhere.
Beyond the eye-catching patinaed copper exterior, the new Compartes shop (designed by one of Architectural Digest’s top interior designers in the world, Kelly Wearstler) features hand plastered walls in the style of the most beloved Italian architects, custom arched ceilings, custom hand painted tiles, custom light fixtures made from Onyx and plenty of brass.
It also doesn’t hurt that his chocolates are some of the best (I highly recommend the Love Nuts) and that he serves a “frozen hot chocolate,” which is described as a mix of “soft serve ice cream and milkshake and rich european style thick hot chocolate rolled into one.” Sounds amazing.
