Online gallery Tappan Collective has opened shop in West Hollywood. Founder Chelsea Neman Nassib tapped Abramson Architects and designer Brandi Howe to develop the 2,500-square-foot location for hosting rotating exhibitions of emerging artists. “I wanted people to experience a sense of comfort and discovery as they move through the space,” Nassib says.
“We landed on the idea of a deconstructed living room, so visitors might feel what it’s like to have these pieces in their homes.” Also included is a retail space for furniture company House of Leon, founded by Nassib’s brothers, Jordan and Steven Neman. “There’s synergy between the brands,” Nassib adds. “And what better neighbors than your siblings?”
