While we love a quirky souvenir mug and all, there's nothing like a sleek coffee cup and science lab-like morning brewing ritual to kick off the day in an inspired of mind. Chic Angelenos can now give a minimalist boost to their favorite beverages (caffeinated or otherwise) at Kinto, which quietly opened its first U.S. store three weeks ago at Row DTLA.

Founded in 1972 in Japan, the brand is known for its modern drinkware and kitchen goods. At its bright 1,500-square-foot L.A. shop (located in the lifestyle center's Building 2), expect to find its full collection of home products, including glass and stainless steel tea sets, vintage-inspired coffee brew sets made of brass and walnut wood, wabi-sabi mugs and dishes, tumblers, wood serving trays and coasters, and more.

The relaxing space (dreamed up by Japanese interior designer Haruka Imai from the architecture firm Intentionallies) features wood fixtures and furniture from Japan and greenery by L.A. botanical studio Kkot. We're told that the store also plans on hosting events and workshops once they've settled into their new Stateside shop.

Kinto at Row DTLA, 787 South Alameda St., Building 2 Suite 188, L.A., 90021; Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Mondays
