Inspired by the chocolate shops of the early 20th century and seen through a California lens, the Compart├ęs store design embodies the art of chocolate making. Every element in the petite 430 sq-ft space is customized and made locally in Los Angeles. The materials are rooted in tradition: patinaed copper, honed and tumbled marble, brass, glass, onyx, ebonized wood, plaster.

A dusky emerald is the color of choice for the shop to beautifully enhance the displays of chocolate. Custom ceramic bowls by artist Morgan Peck and hand-blown glass domes by NY-based artist Anna Karlin are among the elements created to showcase and serve the chocolate.

The pattern of the geometric black wall in ebonized and wire-brushed wood was inspired by the artist Louise Nevelson; the wall integrates a secret door that leads to the back of the store where chocolatiers put the finishing touches on handmade, gourmet chocolates and pour frozen hot chocolate drinks from brass faucets.
