It’s always a treat to find new and unique design shops in the Los Angeles area, especially at the Pacific Design Center (PDC) in West Hollywood.  It is great to see new showrooms filling up the Design Center; it raises my hopes about the future of the Interior Design business.

A few months ago, I came across a showroom at the  PDC that I had not seen yet,  Andrew Martin.  I immediately fell in love with it–not only the furniture and fabrics, but the ideals of the showroom as well.  They are one of the few places that give the buyer the opportunity to purchase items directly off of the showroom floor; this includes everything- artwork, furniture, upholstery, rugs and accessories.  This is particularly helpful when you have a rushed project or need a last minute item and are not able to wait for the customary 4-6 week lead-time that it usually takes for production.

Their lines of fabrics include the nice wide stripes that we all love!

Andrew Martin Letter Side Tables

They also have a great selection of fun side tables–like these modern letters.

Andrew Martin is a UK-based company with a very eclectic and iconic line of furnishings, fabric and accessories—ranging from pop culture art pieces and 70’s mod to nostalgic Americana.  The global designs and reasonable price points are an exciting addition to the Design Center.
