  • California furniture giant planning OKC store

    Living Spaces, with nearly 30 stores in California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas, is planning its first location in Oklahoma.

    The chain has selected the empty land on the southeast corner of May and Memorial, just south of Quail Springs Mall.

    The Oklahoma City furniture market is dominated by local companies and the addition of Living Spaces would be the first large outside competitor.

    Based in La Mirada in Southern California, the company has been in an aggressive expansion mode, having recently opened several stores in the Dallas Fort Worth area including two massive distribution centers.

    The Oklahoma City location would be a massive 148,000 square showroom to include décor items for the dining room, bedroom, home office, outdoor and youth; the Magnolia line by Joanna Gaines is one of many featured brands.

    Most Living Spaces locations have a kid's fun room and climbing complex and a cafe.

    The stores are staffed with around 100 non-commission employees and feature prototype 'homes' that showcase lifestyles from rustic to modern; the goal is to help guests envision their own dream home.

    Living Spaces promotes its products as stylish, diverse and well-priced.
