Windsor Square designer Randy Esada has re-opened his lifestyle decor business as Prospr, on Beverly Blvd. at 7407 Beverly Blvd, between Martel Avenue and Vista Street.

Esada closed his antique store  Thrive Decor, a few doors down, earlier this summer, along with clothier Diane Merrick. The two have teamed up in Merrrick’s old space, which has been freshened up with Scalamandré wallpapers and fabrics showcasing an eclectic mix of antiques and Merrick’s favorite crystal and silver pieces and cashmeres.

Shopping is a delight in the large, airy space compactly arranged with Esada’s eclectic inventory of furniture and fashion with a contemporary aesthetic.  There is something wonderful to discover everywhere you look, like the large glass case of exquisite antique Cartier watches and Art Deco slipper chairs Esada recovered in Scalamandré Le Cirque silk.

Esada is excited about offering Scalamandré zebras to clients interested in securing that iconic wallpaper and fabric for a fun twist for a entry way or powder room in a traditional house.  He has also designed a private label line of candles with different scents inspired by LA’s toniest neighborhoods, starting with Hancock Park, Larchmont, Malibu Beach, Westwood and Beverly Hills. There’s even one for Park Avenue for the bi-coastal customers.

Merrick has edited her space down to just her absolute favorites; lots of cashmere, including a cashmere poncho she finally found someone to make the way she likes; hanky panky undies (because they are such good sellers) and a line of vegan leather bags that are reasonably priced and classically styled to appear much more expensive than they really are…so it’s easy to get one in each color.

Esada believes in helping people live well. For him that means surrounding yourself with people and fun things you love. Hence the name “Prospr”! He told us he dropped the vowel following current trends in retail marketing.

“Since we are are going for more of a modern look, Prospr offers a more current and youthful image for the next big thing on Beverly Blvd,” said Esada. 

In celebration of the grand opening of the store, all sales are 10% off through Labor Day and locals get 15% off the Hancock Park or Larchmont candles.

Congrats to Esada and Merrick on their new venture. Let’s hope they Prospr too!
