We will even ship the pieces anywhere in the country...

Even though there is a lot to see in Los Angeles, a excursion out of the city is also highly recommended.

We will also enjoy a stop and visit to the city of Santa Barbara. This is also a unique coastal city with incredible views and beautiful panoramic views and it has a Mediterranean vibe.
