The Pasadena Thibaut Showroom
The Thibaut showroom in Pasadena is now open! So if you are a designer or a design enthusiast now you have a place to source and buy Thibaut in the Pasadena area. The new Thibaut boutique showroom is located in Old Pasadena within Cozy Stylish Chic, our multi-line retail and to the trade showroom. The full Thibaut line consists of fine furniture, wallpaper, fabrics, trim, and grasscloth wrapped case goods. Thibaut couldn’t have picked a better area to open a showroom, as the line has grown quite a following in Pasadena. In the 2022 Pasadena Showcase House, Thibaut was prominently represented in 3 designer spaces. They have been a sponsor to every Pasadena Showcase House that I can remember in recent years.
A sizable footprint in the showroom is dedicated to Thibaut. The line has a broad appeal around the country, but even more so in the Pasadena area. In fact, according to one of our wallpaper hangers he hangs Thibaut more often than any other paper when in Pasadena. After all, Thibaut even has a pattern named “Pasadena” which speaks to the popularity of the line in the area. The line offers bright and vibrant prints that appeal to the east coast preppy. At the same time, the newest neutral geometrics speak to a more modern “westside” aesthetic. Whatever your look may be, Thibaut has got you covered.
Our Thibaut displays are chock full of inspiration. In addition, we also have all the tools needed to assist the designer and/or design enthusiast in their next design project. Conveniently located next to the fabric and wallpaper books is a wall of Thibaut’s best selling performance and grasscloth wallcoverings. Small grab and go memo samples can easily coordinate with other fabrics and finishes without having to wait for a sample.
Thibaut Fine Furniture Quick Ship Program
We are also a Thibaut furniture showroom and have their upholstery on the floor so that you can experience how they feel and sit. Pieces from Thibaut’s Quick Ship Program are also on our floor. With all the supply chain issues our industry have been facing, quality upholstery lines are at such long lead times with some vendors at 40+ weeks. However, Thibaut has streamlined the production process on a selection of their best styles, finishes, and fabrics. This selection of custom upholstery is available at a 4-6 lead time which is unheard of at this time. No other custom upholstery lines have such short lead times – especially with the quality that Thibaut is known for. So if you’re looking for quick but also need quality, now you know where to go!
Our History with Thibaut and High Point Market
Thibaut has always been a favorite vendor of mine. Way back in my early days at High Point Market, I looked to them for driving some of they key trends in the marketplace. I even included them in one of my earliest trend reports back in 2013! PS – they still are a must-see showroom for all designers attending High Point Market. Bill Sorrell does SUCH a fantastic job of designing and merchandising the showroom! Designers always comment on how Thibaut is always one of the freshest and inspiring showrooms at market. And their selection of fresh flower arrangements – they are to die for!
The Thibaut showroom at High Point Market sets the bar pretty high. When merchandising our space for Thibaut, we aimed to put together a showroom that is anchored by Thibaut, but also includes a mix of the many other accessory, lighting, and rug vendors we carry. Much like how one would see things put together in a home, we did this by mixing the wallpaper, fabric, fine furniture, and trim. We included upholstered seating as well as Thibaut grasscloth wrapped mirrors and case goods. The wallcoverings consist of modern geometrics from Modern Resource 3 on one wall and Laura, from Anna French – all recent introductions. We used the Thibaut trim collection to create unique, one of a kind pillows, which are scattered throughout the space. The wide-width sheers are a new addition to the line. They have been VERY well received for their unique weaves and fresh appeal.
The Thibaut Grand Opening Event
The showroom grand opening was a fun industry event. We were so honored that Thibaut’s CEO, Rick Kilmer, and VP of Sales, Andrea Eckberg, made the trek from the east coast to attend our opening. Also in attendance were members from the LA Showroom and our beloved Thibaut rep, Karin Klein. Believe it or not, the first time I met Karen was in 2013 when she knocked on my door and showed me the line at my kitchen table. Back then I didn’t know where to buy Thibaut in the area so I opened my own account. Fast forward to 2022 and we just opened the Thibaut boutique showroom in Pasadena! A real “pinch me” moment!
Also in attendance were some of our favorite designers in the Pasadena area.
To commemorate the occasion, we served green apple martinis and had the fanciest grazing table you ever did see.
So if you are a fan of Thibaut and never knew where to buy Thibaut, now you know. It is usually available exclusively to the trade but our showroom also has a retail division. We are one of few places where to buy Thibaut that is open for retail as well as to the trade business. Feel free to stop by during our business hours, Monday-Friday, 9-5. I hope to see you in the showroom soon!
