A can’t-miss stop for design lovers, Downtown LA’s Poketo carries quirky-cute items from independent designers as well as exclusive collaborations with artists and brands. Husband-wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung first started Poketo as an online store to inject art and design into the everyday before opening the Downtown brick-and-mortar. Through its joyfully red doorway you’ll find equally mood-lifting objects from hand-painted kitchenware to colorful pens. The store also features a collection of children’s items sure to illicit a squeal or two.
