Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, February 19, 2014
Los Angeles - Home furnishings source Abbyson Living is opening an additional 100,000-square-foot distribution center in Southern California, its third facility in the state and fourth nationwide.
The company said the center in Moorpark, Calif., has 20 employees and is expected to double that number in the next few months. Officials said Abbyson is expanding its distribution capacity to handle expected growth this year, keeping up with clients' demands and continuing delivery in a timely manner.
"We have a lot of exciting projects planned for 2014," company President Yavar Rafieha said. "The additional space that this new fulfillment center provides will help us meet consumer demand."
Abbyson has expanded its categories, adding more than 100 new designs of living room, bedroom, outdoor and accessories collections for 2014. The company also is introducing its first licensed furniture line with celebrity designer Monica Pedersen, who will be a judge on a new design show, "American Dream Builders," on NBC this year.
"This new facility will allow Abbyson Living to keep up with the demand of its designs and product collections," Abbyson Living Senior Vice President Doddy Rafieha said. "As interest in new partnerships grows, we're proud to provide our customers with faster and more efficient shipping methods."
Abbyson added its first East Coast warehouse and distribution center last year, an 80,000-square-foot facility in Sterling, Va. The company also has two other California distribution centers, in Camarillo and an existing facility in Moorpark, where the new facility has opened.
