I drove up to HD Buttercup in Culver City today to pick up some rugs for a client. I love that store. They have some really interesting furnishings and often at a good discount. For designers, it may pale in comparison to the Pacific Design Center, but personally I think it's sometimes nice to visit a more condensed furniture mall that doesn't take as long to walk through and has significantly closer (and cheaper) parking.
Even though it's a little bit of a drive from Orange County, I always try to send clients there who are interested in doing some shopping on their own. It's not "to the trade only", like most design centers, but it still helps clients see what new and different furniture is available, outside of the typical Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Z Gallerie, etc.
