Century Furniture: "California Style"

Our travels recently found us in sunny, Southern California home to three Century Furniture showrooms. Come along for a visit!!

The LA Mart
First stop, downtown Los Angeles at the LA Mart located at 1933 South Broadway in the heart of Los Angeles. There's no missing this design destination, just look for the "chair"!

(The front of the LA Mart featuring "the chair".)

(Some holiday cheer on display in the lobby.)


(Another photograph of the recently, re-designed lobby of the LA Mart.)

(The Century window featuring a classic, pretty sofa.)
(The main entrance to the showroom, located on the first floor.)

(A dramatic entry - our Milan Slab Dining Table.)

(A chic upholstery setting.)

(I just loved this sectional, stylish and so comfortable - serene in a way.)

(I thought these were so fun! Love the embroidered zebra tops!)

(Attractive and functional! Hidden storage - what a perfect place to hide a throw or a stack of magazines.)

(Some of Century's more casual looks - a Tuscan dining room table and chairs.)


(A beautiful, carved bed from the Caperana collection.)

(An inviting seating area.)

(The designer work area.)
(Outdoor collection: Andalusia.)

The Pacific Design Center

Traveling into West Hollywood brings us to our second showroom location in the Pacific Design Center at 8687 Melrose Avenue. Again there's no missing this design mecca, some in the know have given it the nickname "big blue whale".


(The front marquee of the Pacific Design Center.)


(The stunning view looking out of the design center up Melrose Avenue.)

(Walking up to the Century showroom, located on the 4th floor of the blue building.)


(A chic display of our Oscar de la Renta collection.)


(Our new Profiles collection - multiple legs and sizes allow customizable tables. Also a good reminder of our custom workshop and capabilities.)


(Two Omni Bunching China cabinets flank a New Traditional Demi-Lune.)


(Love the lines of this chaise lounge - seems so Hollywood!)


(A setting from our Naturals Collection, how great would this be for a home in Malibu?)


(Omni Dining Room.)

(A vignette featuring the Essex sofa - a classic design that allows multiple stylings, widths and depths.)

(Ankasa hand-embroidered bedding and decorative pillows.)

(An assortment of our outdoor furniture all covered in the best selling white sailcloth.)


(A shot of the design area in the PDC showroom.)


(I noticed while leaving that evening - they've lit the escalator rotunda red & green for the holidays. How festive!)

The Laguna Niguel Design Center

And last but of course not least we traveled about an hour and a half south to Laguna Niguel Design Center located at 23811 Aliso Creek Road. Its such a pretty center, I love the fact that all the showrooms are situated around an open courtyard design!



(The main entrance to the design center.)

(The courtyard - roses in December! How wonderful!)


(Welcome to Century.)


(A modern upholstery setting.)

(I loved this little vignette, so fresh in creams - featuring our Milan Desk and one of our upholstered screens.)

(Contemporary dining featuring our round Omni Dining Table.)


(Looking across the showroom - some additional contemporary pieces.)


(An outdoor setting featuring our South Beach collection.)


(The designer work area.)


(A work in progress - featuring new fabrics and chairs.)


(A warm, Tuscan dining room setting.)


(A console from our Monarch collection.)


(A wonderful secretary, again from our Monarch collection.)

(Our Oscar de la Renta Venetian sofa, done in a easy natural way with a raw, slubby silk fabric and just a hit of animal print on the pillows.)
