It hails itself as the Disneyland of furniture stores – and for good reason. Cilek Kid’s Room, which will open a store in Costa Mesa in February, offers an imaginative assortment of children’s furniture, including racecar beds complete with music, animation and lights, and a series of whimsical princess furniture.
“Our products are unique in every sense,” said Talha Cilek, the company’s president and chief executive. “Most of our items are theme-based. We have racecar beds, ship beds, and what you see on the market is no match for our items.”
