Making a home feel just the way you want it to can be all about how the light is placed, the color of the walls, or the type of furniture you choose. The Warehouse of Home Decor helps with the latter, with a show room full of pieces that suit an array of interior schemes for every room of the house. Bedroom sets come in modern, boxy shapes or more classic versions with intricate wood carvings or tufted-leather headboards. Dining-room tables seemingly made for every size room come in a choice of materials, including wood, glass, and marble. But custom work is also one of the warehouse's fortes, including artwork framing that matches any home's style.
Every person has their own idea of the perfect mattress. Some like to shop by brand, others by the comfort level. Often, size is their most important factor, or its ability to dissuade monkeys from jumping atop it. With this in mind, each associate at Mattress Connection takes these variables into account when pairing customers with new mattress from top brands, such as Sealy Posturepedic and Simmons, in sizes that range from twin to king. They also help customers sleep more comfortably with memory foam pillows, which remember their spinal alignment and where dreams left off the night before.
Since its inception in 1979, The Museum of Contemporary Art has devoted itself to post-1940 artwork, a focus that sets it apart from all other Los Angeles museums. Its permanent collection harbors more than 5,000 art objects, encompassing media from video installations and documentary photography to pop art. Works from renowned artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Diane Arbus share gallery space with pieces from up-and-coming artists across the museum?s three facilities.
To complement its permanent collection, the museum hosts rotating temporary exhibits, such as the current Mike Kelley exhibit, which explores american pop culture through irreverent, multimedia pieces. The museum staff also augments these displays with events, such as their screening series in collaboration with the Los Angeles Filmforum, which explores the intersection of experimental film and art like a projection screen sewn with pages from DaVinci?s journal.
With locations in Downtown Los Angeles and Downey and an online emporium, Your Furniture Now's experienced staff outfits homes with bed stands, chairs, dining-room sets, tables, and other essential pieces.

After customers select their items, such as a durable innerspring Serta mattress or a marble-accented bar set, the company delivers the products as soon as the following day. They even assemble pieces for free, saving homeowners the hassle of having to find something other than a toolbox to weigh down important documents.

Allen and Richard Wattenberg took over the reins at Ross Cutlery in 1964. By that time, the shop was already 34 years old and predominantly dealt with knife-sharpening services. While the brothers and their staff have continued the shop's legacy of fixing up dull knife blades and haircutting tools, they've steadily populated their shelves with professional-grade haircutting tools, sporting knives, collectible swords, and kitchen-cutlery sets from Henckels, Trident, and Forschner. Their 2,300-square-foot shop rests on the ground floor of the Bradbury Building, which is an architectural landmark and the proud father of a rambunctious little parking garage.
