Now Showing at SC Metro: Appliance Showrooms

Manufacturers Say High-End Cluster Lifts All Kitchens


The Costa Mesa theater district, home to Segerstrom Center for the Arts and South Coast Repertory, has added another showroom to its repertoire—the Fisher & Paykel Experience Center, where a reference to a high note is more about a 36-inch stove’s British thermal unit output than about a vocal range.

The 6,500-square-foot space opened last month next door to Vaca restaurant, showcasing luxury appliance manufacturers’ latest offerings, as well as complementary brands.

Fisher & Paykel Appliances Ltd.’s neighbors include high-end cabinet maker Leicht USA, a Sub Zero and Wolf West Showroom that opened one street over on Anton Boulevard in 2015, and Monark Premium Appliance Co., which opened its multibrand store at South Coast Plaza in 2016.

The area’s “turning into a little design hub,” said Fisher & Paykel strategy director Scott Davies.
