A Luxury Optometrist Office & Retail Boutique

Here’s a sneak peak into a recently completed project, Eyes on the Bloc, a luxury optometrist office and retail boutique at The BLOC in Downtown Los Angeles.

A clean, minimalist design was created, punctuated by artwork with optical references as a nod to the practice’s commitment of investing in the latest technology in optometry and the principal’s passion for art. The neutral color palette creates a welcoming shopping experience, while the placement of optical artwork adds just the right amount of drama and color.

Every corner of the store was thoughtfully designed around the experience of the customer, including the bright, back wall, which was fitted with back-lit displays. This wall display transforms an often ordinary and common design piece seen in most optometrist offices into a striking focal piece for the space, highlighting the products, while giving customers the highest level of ease and efficiency while shopping.

The Fashionable Tastemaker: May Yeung

May Yeung

Jewelry designer May Yeung developed an interest and passion for jewelry when she was a young girl while observing her mother getting dressed for a dinner or dance party.  Whenever an opportunity arose, May would sneak into her parents’ bedroom and take a peek in the drawer that held her mother’s collection of fine and costume jewelry. It was then when May started coveting pearls and was later gifted her first strand of Majorica pearls from her parents when she was teenager.

As a designer, May is often asked where she receives her creative inspiration.  May is continually inspired by all the women in her life – her sister Kathy, girlfriends, mentors and colleagues. She is happiest when helping modern women feel beautiful, confident and “completing their timeless look”.

One of May Yeung Jewelry’s founding principles is its commitment to being “Made in the U.S.A.” with each piece of jewelry exclusively designed and handmade in Los Angeles, California.
