Pacific Design Center is for interior decorators, all done well. I would recommend grabbing a coffee out front. Place has a lot of square footage on 5 floors. 1st and 3rd floor have the most shops.

The place has a feeling of being about 1/3 full. There are several very high-end showrooms with beautiful furniture, appliances and design. Also a very good Wolfgang Puck restaurant. The building itself is rather striking, but also disorienting with miserable way finding.

The pacific design centre is something of a let down, being more like an oversized furniture store. Great though if you like exotic furniture.

Well worth time and would have spent more if we had it. Many floors are empty which makes you wonder.

These are incredible buildings. The offices inside are mainly interior design and furnishing operations. But the building itself is impressive to visit. We enjoyed taking artistic pictures of the many angles of the buildings and went back at night to use the dramatic lighting in some more photos.

this is basically just an office building for companies involved in home and commercial decorating. there is nothing to see inside, nor anything to do! besides, parking in this area is awful. drive by on your way to something interesting!

The traffic getting to the center is always bad so use patience and you will be rewarded You can wander and stop to look at a variety of unique styles of design.

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

Staying in West Hollywood

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.
