Saatva Neighborhood Spotlight: West Hollywood, Los Angeles
Palm tree-lined streets, neon lights, and celeb-sightings galore; in Los Angeles, West Hollywood has it all. “WeHo,” as it’s affectionately called, is home to some of the city’s best nightlife, star-owned restaurants, and boutique shops. That’s why it’s the perfect locale for Saatva’s latest Viewing Room.
"We are right on a corner surrounded by home furnishing stores and across the street from the Pacific Design Center, so we get a lot of interior designer traffic, as well as people outfitting their homes,” says Denise Fulgencio, Viewing Room manager of Saatva Los Angeles. “We are also next to West Hollywood Park and—very important for LA—a parking garage, both of which bring a lot of foot traffic."
So enjoy the SoCal sun hopping from store to store, choosing your brand new Saatva mattress, and ending the night with a cocktail or two. Keep your eyes peeled; you never know who you’ll see in WeHo.
Where to shop
Saatva Viewing Room
In true Hollywood fashion, Saatva has combined the latest technology with a chic and sophisticated aesthetic for our latest Viewing Room. With kids' mattresses and California kings in tow, plus a killer location, it’s hard to beat this mattress shopping experience. "We are right on Melrose Ave., close to a lot of home furnishing and flagship stores, as well as bars and restaurants," says Fulgencio. "There are not a lot of great walkable areas in LA, but this is one of them."
