The new Costa Mesa store marks the light fixture brand’s fourth California location. “We are thrilled to deepen relationships in Orange County with this new location in the SoCo complex. The melting pot of homes in the area—from Spanish Colonial to classic American to mid-century—is a great fit for our comprehensive mix of products,” said Ryan Ross, executive vice president of Rejuvenation. “For years, we’ve developed products rooted in history and inspired by decades of design. This focus results in an offering that is authentically eclectic and timeless.” (SoCo Collection, 3323 Hyland Avenue, #L2, Costa Mesa, CA 92626)

This showroom provides a modern and interactive environment for customers to collaborate with our professional design consultants, explore our exclusive materials and uncover limitless inspiration for whole-home storage solutions.” (1627 Montana Avenue, Suite A, Santa Monica, CA 90403)

The brand’s first and flagship retail store just debuted in S.F. with a 1,800-square-foot space imagined by designer Jeremiah Brent. “True Botanicals, for me, is one of those brands
that’s the future: it’s holistic, it’s nontoxic, it’s rooted in ceremony,” explains Brent. “And so we wanted something experiential, rather than transactional—to beckon guests to sit down, connect, have a cup of tea and immerse themselves in the sensorial.” (524 Washington Street, San Francisco, CA 9411)
