Bassman Blaine, Inc. is proud to present the Orange Coast Design Collective (OCDC) at our corporate headquarters! On February 6th, we celebrated the official grand opening of the OCDC and our new, expansive showroom in Irvine, CA with over 200 Southern California Interior Designers. We are thrilled to have a brand new, innovative facility where we can connect the design industry and create a flourishing community with shared resources. Our new Irvine Showroom features around 9,000 sq. ft. of product available off-the-floor from our home furnishings partners including more lines such as Artistica, American Leather, Brownstone, Bernhardt Interiors, Lexington, and Made Goods.

During our celebration, designers enjoyed a catered brunch, mimosas, vendor presentations, several giveaways, shopping at our new showroom, and the company of other thriving design professionals! Along with our showroom inventory that is available for purchase off-the-floor, we also hosted a display of Leftbank Art originals that are for sale for a limited time at our Irvine showroom. Another resource we provide at our new showroom expanding from furnishings are our industry partners that help complete projects such as white glove delivery, home automation, flooring, art reproduction & framing, window coverings, & full-service construction.
