The Pacific design Center is known by Angelenos as the Blue Whale. It is a phenomenal design nirvana for furniture, home accessories, gorgeous fabrics and linens. Its myriads of glass fronted display rooms are usually open by appointment +To the trade. Occasionally they have had a awesome outdoor sale (in the past) I do't know if they still do it.You... More

I have worked in this building for four years and gather inspiration from seeing the myriad number of designers with space in this complex. The building is open weekdays and you can stroll the Blue, Green and now Red Buildings and see what top designers are promoting for your personal living space. You can also park in the multi-story parking... More

1,200,000 square feet multi-use facility for the design community located in West Hollywood, California. One of the buildings is often described as the Blue Whale because of its outsize nature relative to surrounding buildings and its brilliant blue glass cladding. Blue Building and Red Building are open. Red building is fast being completed. NOT retail, but if you get very... More

Very cool to look at and a fun place for special events (I met Karl Lagerfeld here) but unless you can afford a decorator, not much use.

The PDC originally began with the blue building which was nicknamed "The Blue Whale," Then the green building was constructed and within the last few years the red (and final) building. The PDC is a design center whose occupants (mostly) offer design objects for your home or office. Many, I think, only allow visitors by appointment but not all of... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
