These ridiculously handsome chairs have been holding it down over at our House of Spoils gallery in Los Angeles this past month. The mid-century furniture is from our friends over at Apt 2b who helped us bring the space to life. They did such a bang up job that a lot of people have been asking if the chairs and tables are for sale. They're not, at least at our shop -- but if you're interested you should check them out below.

LONG READS

Back in the early 1980s, rap was primarily a boys club, but a few girls still managed to sneak in and do their thing. Although uptown girls Sha-Rock from the Funky Four + 1 and the Mercedes Ladies were pioneers of the genre, it was a teenager from Queens named Roxanne Shante who gets credit for laying down a verbal foundation for other fem rhyme slayers to follow for decades. As seen in the gritty Netflix biopic Roxanne Roxanne, which details the rapper’s humble beginnings and hard knock life, Shante was just another around-the-way girl with an attitude living in Queensbridge Projects when she was discovered by record producer Marley Marl, who lived and worked in the same public housing sprawl. Marley’s rap posse the Juice Crew featuring Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie and MC Shan were some of the best rappers in the city and being down with them meant something special.
