A home is where you can freely express yourself, and your sense of style. Whether you prefer character-rich vintage pieces or shabby chic, quintessentially SoCal creations, these four boutiques in and around Pasadena are certain to have something that appeals to your unique taste.
Wander through De-Cor’s 7,500-square-foot showroom in Pasadena’s South San Gabriel Boulevard and you’ll be sure to find a truly unique, inspiring piece of vintage furniture from a faraway corner of the world. Among our favorites are the aqua-hued Apothecary dresser, vibrant hand-loomed throw blankets by the Chizami tribe of India and early 20th-century Japanese chest of drawers with intricate decorative ironwork.
Simple but never mundane, the contemporary pieces at the Scandinavian Design store in East Pasadena are plush, practical and unfailingly high quality. We love this Pavel Leather Sofa for its sleek, versatile look.

Cozy Stylish Chic
SoCal-based interior designer Jeanne K. Chung brings her eye for rich yet touchable fabrics and fresh, modern-meets-classic design aesthetic to this showroom in Old Pasadena. Around every corner is a piece of decor that is eclectic and elegant yet still warm and inviting.
