After anchoring Old Town Pasadena's buzzing Colorado Boulevard, Crate & Barrel has found a new home — right across the street from its old digs. The home furnishings retailer debuted its first-ever Design Studio, a new concept space that offers a more boutique-like shopping experience with a focus on complete customization services.

Officially open as of yesterday, the brand took over See's Candie's old storefront next door to Tiffany & Co. Spanning about a third of the space of its previous location, the new 10,000-square-foot outpost allows the brand to showcase a more curated selection of its home furnishings, including unique colorways not typically shown at other Crate & Barrel stores. The result? A comfy and chic environment where interior design enthusiasts can better envision the abode of their dreams — whether it's a DTLA loft space, apartment for two, or a single-family home — and get pro help from the retailer's experts.

Similar to its old store, the Design Studio is also spread across two stories, offering a showroom-like setting for different interior styles and spaces, from Mad Men-worthy hangouts featuring Crate & Barrel's midcentury modern-inspired furniture to contemporary cool living rooms with white boucle couches and blush ottomans.

On the first floor, find sofas ($1,099 and up), seating ($150 and up), tables ($469 and up), rugs ($20 to $3,500), buffets and sideboards ($599 and up), bar carts ($299 and up), and many other living and dining room pieces alongside outdoor furniture, decor (including its new Portuguese-inspired ceramics collection), and tableware. The brand's light-filled upstairs space showcases bedroom furniture such as headboards and bed frames ($500 and up), dressers and chests ($500 and up), textiles, and nightstands as well as lighting and kids room furnishings, including cribs and twin beds ($400 and up), dressers, and storage.

What shoppers won't find are kitchen appliances typically sold at the retailer's larger format stores. Vicki Lang, head of public relations for Crate & Barrel, tells us that the brand wanted to focus that shelf space on everyday items, such as entertaining essentials, rather than on products that many customers opt to buy online.

The Crate & Barrel Design Studio is also geared towards helping clients plan everything from a complete home makeover or a living room upgrade, including made-to-order seating, tables, bed frames, and more that can be customized by upholstery, wood, or metal options.

Complimentary interior design services include mood boards and a shopping list, and the store's experts can also assist with premium services ($99 deposit redeemable towards purchases) that include an in-home design consultation, a professional floorplan, and a digital 3D image of your future space. C&B's pros can also help clients book furniture, lighting, and wall decor installation services from Handy, their trusted partner.
