There’s something about reading John Steinbeck novels that inspires us to decorate our abode like a Dust Bowl-era country home — but somehow our interiors end up looking like a random collection of uncool thrift store finds. That’s why we could learn a thing or two from Hey Hey This Way, a charming new shop that arrived this past weekend at West Adams shipping container shopping center Adams Gateway.
Founded by a trio of Texas-bred talents (architect Lilliana Fields, actor Parisa Fakhri, and visual artist Hang Dang), the shop offers found objects sourced from adventures and handmade art and decor crafted by themselves and talented friends. “An object is only as great as the story behind it. Most of our beginning pieces came from roaming out in the desert,” Fields tells us. The shop “is an idea that encompasses beyond objects, it is really us just trying to bring our intensity for living and beauty to the world.”
Finds include vintage 14k gold accoutrements, pottery, books, and decor, while made goods include pillows by Meadow at Dusk; perforated metal skateboards, seating, and more by RAD Furniture; collages and hand-carved spoons by Fakhri; and paintings by Fields’ own mother, Vikki Fields.
Hey Hey This Way is open Thursday through Sunday from 12 to 6pm.
