Cozy Stylish Chic opens its doors for business!
After several months of tirelessly working on our first brick and mortar storefront (really, the building was built in 1928 and is actual brick and mortar!), we’ve finally opened the doors – right in the heart of Old Town Pasadena. Situated on the northeast corner of Dayton and De Lacey, we are proud to call such well-known high-end design retailers such as Farrow & Ball, Roche Bobois, and Design Within Reach as neighbors. The former two moved into the area within the last year and Design Within Reach being the storefront that started the migration of design and home furnishing stores to the area over 8 years ago. As a matter of fact, yesterday I received the newest issue of Pasadena Magazine and there was a nice write up on the west end of the Green Street corridor quickly becoming Pasadena’s newest design district. Naturally, Cozy Stylish Chic was also included as one of the go-to establishments for stylish design!
Although it may seem as though I am the newcomer to the block, in actuality I have probably been here the longest. My family purchased the building in 1994 when I had an entirely different occupation – that of a clothing designer. I worked in the loft, perched above what is now the work peninsula until 2004, at which time the construction of the apartment building next door and subsequent damage to our building resulted in my family’s company having to relocate in order to undergo major repairs. After all repairs were complete, the entire building was leased to Salon Sessions, which still occupies the building today and with whom Cozy Stylish Chic shares bathrooms and common area.
