8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, CA 90069, United States

This hulking campus of interior design showrooms cuts a striking figure in the neighborhood—it’s been nicknamed the “Blue Whale” for the outsized scale of its main blue-tinted building relative to surrounding structures. If you’re not in the interior design industry, you won’t be privy to the wholesale prices from the 2,200 lines represented, but it’s still fun to browse the designer collections, pop-up art exhibitions, and the onsite branch of MOCA (the downtown-based Museum of Contemporary Art), which focuses on architecture and design. For a pick-me-up, stop in at Wolfgang Puck’s Red Seven restaurant.
