Century - "Philadelphia Style"

Across the country we have network of to-the-trade showrooms: each carries the entire Century Furniture line in addition to accessories, artwork, lighting, rugs and more - all set in inspirational displays.

While we sell to-the-design trade we are open for retail browsing and a great point to start for all "things Century"!! I thought as part of my travels it would be fun to introduce you all to each of our locations, first our showroom located in the Marketplace Design Center Philadelphia, PA.

(A photo of the design center which features a stunning mural done by Wyland, a renowned marine life artist.)


(The design center is technically located in downtown Philadelphia, just steps from the 30th Street Train Station and on the banks of the Schuylkill River.)


(Looking down Market Street to the entrance of the design center; you can see City Hall in the background just over the marquee.)


(Flowers on the reception desk - I though this was such a beautiful and different bouquet!)

(Looking into the front windows of the Century Showroom.)


(A stylish upholstery setting - featuring our Oscar de la Renta products.)


(A close-up of decorative throw pillows - isn't the fabric reminiscent of a Picasso or Matisse painting?)
(A desk from our Milan Collection - the showroom has a range of pieces and styles, but transitional and contemporary furniture continues to be popular.)

(Our Omni Dining Table - showing the gorgeous table top.)


(Another Milan piece - accessorized by comtemporary "leaves".)



(We also show a range of traditional rooms.)

(A classic four poster bed dressed with Ankasa bedding.)


(One of my favorite parts of this showroom is the huge deck which overlooks the river! What an amazing setting to show our entire outdoor furniture collection .... and a lovely place for lunch.)


(The view from our deck, looks down on the banks of the Schuylkill River which have been developed into a recreation walkway - great for a stroll, bike ride or run.)


(A beautiful mirrored bed from our Grand Tour collection shown with handpainted bedding from Dransfield & Ross.)


(A close up of luxurious feather pillows.)

(Our resource center in the showroom featuring all the Century fabrics as well as finish and other material sample references.)

(Some samples of our "Alternating Strips" rug collection.)
