Mum's Place Earns 3rd Consecutive "Best Of" Award

Mum's Place Earns 3rd Consecutive

We want to extend our congratulations to Mum’s Place, for winning “Best Furniture Store 2018” three times this year by the Carmel Pine Cone, Monterey Herald, and Monterey County Weekly. If you do the math… that’s 19 wins over 32 years in business!

In 1986, Mum’s Place was opened by Mugo and Talin Tersakyan, and was operated out of a small Victorian-style house in Pacific Grove. The store began working with primarily oak furniture (oak and pine were all the rage in the 1980’s), but quickly grew too large for the space. Mugo and Talin decided to move to a larger space, which encouraged them to explore more diverse manufacturers as well.

It wasn’t until 1994 that Mum’s Place became the store we know today. When the couple moved to their current location on Forest Avenue, Mum’s Place became a real furniture gallery carrying large name brand names like Flexsteel, American Leather, Canadel and Stressless, offering living room, dining room, and bedroom furniture. And rather than just delivering products to their customers, they began providing concepts, room configurations, and design ideas for entire homes. In 1997, Talin received an Interior Design degree, helping to transform Mum’s Place even further by offering design services to their customers as well.

The sales team, designers, and warehouse operators also make Mum’s Place special. Sharing a combined 50 years of dedication to the business, they make customer service a priority from start to finish.

A lot has happened in the last 32 years. Growing from a small oak furniture store to a 10,000 square foot gallery, and from a humble shop to an interior design destination. But Mum’s Place never sacrificed it’s family values. It’s what makes the employees more like family members, and customers more like friends.

Go see for yourself why Mum’s Place was voted “Best Furniture Store” three times in 2018!

Mum's Place is located at 246 Forest Avenue in downtown Pacific Grove and is open from 10:00a.m.-5:30p.m. Monday through Saturday, and closed Sundays. For more information on Mum's Place, please visit their website www.mumsfurniture.com or call (831) 372-6250.
