It was last April when vintage tile expert and merchant Scott Wells had begun packing up his Echo Park store in preparation for a move. But at that point it was not exactly clear where Wells Tile & Antiques would end up. That uncertainty has been resolved and Wells Tile, which is one of the city’s largest sources of vintage and antique tile, is moving one block east on Sunset Boulevard into the former home of the La Popular Furniture store.
Here, in a large, 8,000-square-foot home, Wells is team up with Eric Ramos’s Architectural Salvage of Whittier, according an announcement on the Wells Tile website. As you can tell from the above photo, the new and larger store is being set up. But, once everything is put into place, here, according to the Wells Tile website, is what to expect in the future.
With the addition of Eric’s fantastic selection of architectural salvage including vintage lighting, antique building elements, period hardware and plumbing, our new location promises to be the perfect one-stop shopping destination for antique enthusiasts, interior designers, architects, landscape artists and contractors.
