Located in the historic Helms Bakery building in Culver City, HD Buttercup displays a vast selection of stylish, high-end furniture throughout its over 150,000 sq. ft. showroom. The evolving inventory is an eclectic mix of mid-century modern, antique, industrial, contemporary and traditional, including original pieces from local and global designers, many of which operate their own mini-showrooms inside the expansive warehouse-like space. Unique furniture and accessories for every room can be found at this boutique storefront that designer Jeff Lewis of Bravo’s Interior Therapy frequents for staging homes on his show, but HD Buttercup also makes for a fun look-but-don’t-buy experience. Of course, budget-conscious buyers can always wait for the semi-annual sale and their up to 70% discounts, or head next door to the attached Father’s Office for a relatively inexpensive (by comparison) meal.

In their urban kitchens from San Diego to Seattle, Hipcooks trains budding culinarians to build their own gourmet dishes from scratch. With more regard for cooks' instincts about taste than exacting recipe measurements, the classes are meant to be social learning experiences capped with a shared dinner. And the meals students learn to make are designed with a practical purpose in mind: an attempt to conjure up romance could feature a dinner of mushroom turnovers, pan-seared steak with polenta, and chocolate soufflé, and surprise guests may provoke an emergency menu of honey-pear salad and pistachio-crusted fish. Like a discriminating competitive eater, other courses focus on a specific cuisine. In Una Noche en España, for example, the chefs produce a wide variety of tapas, while students in Shortcut to Nirvana set the table with spicy curry and vegetarian samosas from the Indian subcontinent.
Ortho Mattress has supported sleepers' backs with sturdy coils for more than 50 years, crafting Ortho LFC, Ortho Dr. Preferred and Summerhill & Bischop–brand mattresses in its Los Angeles factory before shipping them direct to customers.

Both models come paired with a box-spring mate so that they'll always have a partner in Yahtzee. Besides in-house brands, Ortho Mattresses' showrooms stock Simmons Beautyrest and Sealy Posturepedic sleep sponges.
