New LA Venue: The Unique Space

Unique Space LA

It’s always exciting when an amazing, new event space opens its doors! I can immediately start to envision all of the creativity + inspiration that will take place there and look forward to being able to share some of it with you here on GWS! The Unique Space is LA’s newest venue, housed in a historic old factory in downtown’s art district. Founded by Sonja Rasula (recently named by Los Angeles Magazine as one of LA’s Top 10 Most Inspiring Women!), the fresh, modern workplace features gorgeous exposed brick, high ceilings, wood floors, locally made decor, furniture, and wallpaper, as well as many other one-of-a-kind details. The environment truly can’t be beat!

Jason + I were lucky enough to attend the super fun launch party a few weeks ago, designed + planned gorgeously by GATHER Events, which was set up as a mock wedding + featured some incredibly creative design details! I couldn’t believe the crazy-pretty floral arrangements courtesy of Moon Canyon Design Co., the lovely invites + hand dip-dyed menus from Underwood Letterpress or the perfectly curated mid-century modern lounge designed by YEAH! Rentals! And you just might fall in love with the fresh color palette of grey + white, mixed with gold, mauve, plum and berry tones. I know I did!

Here’s a peek at the event through the lens of our super talented friend, Braedon Flynn

Super in love with this idea for a ceremony backdrop, right?

Classic Party Rentals handled the pretty place settings + lighting design, which worked perfectly with the shimmering, chestnut table linens from La Tavola. And love the dip-dyed “canopy” over the dance floor, which transitioned from stark white to bright plum!

Urban Palate provided the most delicious menu for the night! My fave were the roasted tricolor beets, paired with a blood orange + avocado salad. So good!

And of course, the party ended with The Flashdance spinning tunes and Coolhaus sammies! Perfect way to end the night. :) Thanks so much to the talented team of creatives below for throwing such an amazingly awesome industry party!
