The Sofa Company‘s Pasadena showroom is housed in the historical framework of the old Friend Paper Company building.
The mid-century modern design — with accordion-pleated roof and huge walls of glass — feels like an open invitation to plop down and put your feet up for a while.
And, if you like the seating arrangements enough, you can bring one home with you.
While you’re furniture shopping, pop into the Pappa Rich Korean pastry shop and cafe, new to the historic 1960s building. (It fills the vacancy left by the Daily Grind coffeehouse.)
