ARCHITEXTURE is an interior design and home furnishings business that located on Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills. Abby Rose owns this gem of a store and is its principal interior designer. Architexture is comprised of a home furnishing store — offering designer furniture, lighting and decorative accessories, custom-crafted hardwood and upholstered furniture and a full-service interior design studio.
Architexture provides a personal, customized approach to interior design needs of our clients with the goal of providing a custom-design look without having to pay the custom price.
As both the owner of Architexture and the principal interior designer, when clients contact me looking to design or update their home, I can assist in a number of ways. Whether a client needs a total makeover or is starting from scratch with a new home, I offer a comprehensive interior design service. I can use the vast resources through the store and vendor relationships or I can explore other avenues to find just what my client wants and needs.
My goal is to assist you in creating a home that is both beautiful and functional as well as uniquely your own. And while I often work with clients in my store, I see the world as their oyster and will use any resource or vendor that provides the required product or service.
If you have pieces you love and want to keep but need help to update or enhance a room or rooms, I can help. I offer a large selection of designer furniture, fabrics, custom lighting and a whole range or art and decorative accessories. I can also pull together and accessorize a room that needs a finishing touch.
One of the benefits of owning ARCHITEXTURE is that I shop the market on a regular basis and know where to find almost anything one could possibly desire in furniture, lighting, and accessories. And if I can’t locate what my client wants in the marketplace, I work with wonderful craftsmen to create or modify a custom piece of furniture. My goal is to provide my clients with a custom-design look without the custom price.
The layout of the store is designed to provide customers with multiple vignettes. Each vignette is carefully planned and coordinated to look as though it were a room in someone's home. The upholstery, side tables, coffee tables, rugs and accessories, as well as mirrors and art on the wall, are all selected with a particular style, color palate, and point of view in mind. These vignettes have proven extremely effective in helping potential customers and our own interior design clients see what our furniture and decorative accessories look like in a home environment.
We carry a number of lines of hardwood and metal furniture: dining tables, chairs, sideboard, buffets, cabinets, bedroom furniture and etagers. However, when a client needs piece of furniture in a specific size and/or a particular finish, we can custom make it for them. We can take designs from photographs, from magazines or from the Internet and create a piece exactly to the client's specifications. Our craftsmen are superbly talented and can make almost anything we show them.
We offer a number of different styles of sofas and chairs and we make all of our own upholstery. This allows us to offer the client exactly what they want. We can customize the details, length and depth of the sofas and chairs to the comfort level of the client and we do all of this for a very affordable price.
Our accessories are chosen to compliment our vignettes in colors that work with that particular palate. They are displayed so the client knows how they might be used and displayed in their own home.
The wall decor is arranged so the client can see how items can work together and to provide ideas about how they might be arranged on their own walls: a mirror with a pair of art pieces on either side, a print with a pair of sconces flanking it, or a grouping of art prints.
In ARCHITEXTURE's Los Angeles showroom, we provide our clients with a selection of living, dining room and bedroom furniture. The selection includes six styles of sofas and a sectional. Our visitors are encouraged to sit or lie down on the pieces to see which is most comfortable.
Once selected, the sofa or sectional can be ordered in the fabric of the client's choice and, to insure maximum comfort, they can specify its exact height and seat depth.
There is also a selection of chairs – both lounge and dining room – to sit on. How a chair sits, especially a dining chair, is so important for comfort.
We have a selection of cocktail tables that include upholstered, metal and glass. We believe metal and glass are excellent design choices because they introduce other materials into the room and the use of glass helps keep the room open.
Most of the glass and metal pieces – cocktail tables, etageres and end tables – can be ordered in one of 18 finishes.
We also have on display a selection of dining tables, bookcases, bedroom furniture and side tables. This allows our clients to see exactly what the furniture looks like and how it relates to other pieces they have either purchased or are considering purchasing.
