This year Salem and I decided to do almost all of our holiday shopping locally. We selected two stores which we felt could accommodate a wide variety of gifts for our family and friends. We selected Reform School, which we posted on last year, and Yolk.

We discovered Yolk in 2007, just about the time Maria Neuman took ownership of the store. For us Yolk is a perfect fit with their combination of contemporary home accessories, modern furnishing, and children’s fare. Neuman flexes her Swedish design savvy with an array of items for the modern home. From traditional Swedish table ware to Scandinavian designer accessories, when I visit I’m sure to find something unique for all the design lovers in my life. Furniture is one the most enticing aspects of the Yolk inventory. While they don’t carry a lot of it, the items on hand exhibit the utmost quality and exquisite design. Yolk was the first boutique I had seen carry the Kalon Studios line of beautifully detailed children’s furnishings shortly after their debut at CA Boom a few years back.
My attachment to Yolk comes from my desire to hang on to my pre-parent design identity while indulging my urge to buy uniquely adorable stuff for my kids. If you are fortunate enough to visit this LA gem in person we highly recommend doing so, for those outside the area Yolk has an extensive online store where you can shop till your hearts content.
