They say that Abbot Kinney is the “coolest block in America” and with pop-ups like HURRA! I’d have to say that they actually may be onto something. The well-curated pop-up gallery and shop sprung up at the end of November, and while it was only supposed to stay through the end of 2013, HURRA! has extended their stay until the end of this month – hooray! The two brains behind the immaculate space filled with Danish art + design are Sharin Foo and Camilla Hjerl, a musician and graphic designer. Perhaps you’ve heard of the band The Ravonettes? Yes, it’s that Sharin – so cool right?

The only thing cooler and just as beautiful as the owners themselves are the artisanal goods they carry. From Danish staples like Hay and Normann Copenhagen, to emerging artists + designers like Studio Arhoj and Signe Schjøth, be prepared for an onslaught of the most heavenly eye candy you’ve ever come across. Oh, did I mention the abundance of art adorning the walls, and practically every nook and cranny of the gallery? I am obsessed with everything. Seriously.
