Mid-Century Furniture Warehouse

The store's name tells it like it is: This huge warehouse in Kensington is stocked with glorious midcentury modern furniture.

So expect a bit of a mad house and bring a friend to guard your pieces while you search the whole space. Good news: you can get pretty much anything shipped.
