• Flax Pen to Paper has been family owned since 1931 when Meyer Flax opened his first art supply store on 7th Street in downtown Los Angeles. Little did he know that what he started would become a Westwood Village landmark. The legendary FLAX Art Supplies at the famous Lindbrook location (one of the first stores in Westwood Village) opened in 1950 by Meyer’s son Harvey Flax. For over 50 years it stood as a monument to creative people who came from all over the city. In 2002, Joan Flax, 3rd generation Flax family member, and her husband Phil Clark, opened Flax Pen to Paper on Gayley in Westwood Village.

    Joan and Phil created a place where pens and paper are sold together in a completely unique way- where people enjoy spending their time. Flax Pen to Paper is exactly what the name represents, everything from pens to paper and all that falls between. If you are someone looking to buy your first fine pen, a pen as a gift, or if you are a pen aficionado, Flax is the place to go. Yes, the store is a glass and wood architectural masterpiece where light floods in and walls of color tantalize your senses. And yes, the music of Yo-Yo- Ma or Billie Holiday provides the perfect soundtrack for what may be the most inspiring shopping experience of your life. All the pleasurable surroundings lead up to what lies within the elegant cases; the most exquisite pens in the world, for serious aficionados to hip, hi-tech pen people. Of course you can always enjoy reveling in the colors and textures of the extraordinary sheets of paper and envelopes, choose from a variety of notebooks and photo albums, as well as use the wide selection of presentation materials for projects. Flax is a store you walk into and feel like you never want to leave.

      Submitted via Reddit: “Nice shop, good selection of pens (everything from Lamy to Visconti, Aurora, Sailor, etc.) very good selection of paper and friendly staff, more than willing to let you try out plenty of pens. They don’t have a massive selection of inks, they have a good selection of brands but not necessarily all the colours in each range, although sometime things aren’t on display.”
