FAR FROM THE PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER, tucked away in L.A.’s Echo Park nighborhood, Wells Antiques is drawing in everyone from top decorator Michael Smith to celebrity design sleuth Brad Pitt. What makes Wells worth the trip? Quite simply exquisite and one-of-a-kind vintage ceramic tiles. Owner Scott Wells has amassed his museum-quality collection from all over the world, acquiring tiles through estate sales and high-profile auctions. But some of Wells’ most treasured items have arrived in unopened boxes that have been sitting around for years in someone’s grandmother’s garage.
