Retail is changing rapidly, and Pirch, a San Diego-based company, believes it has positioned itself ahead of the curve by focusing on the experience part of the equation.

Sunny, inspirational quotes greet you as you enter the high-end appliance store’s Costa Mesa location, where customers are encouraged to find the joy in their shopping endeavor and “make themselves at home.” That means, if you’re so inclined, trying anything you see before you buy – from shower heads to gas ranges.

OC Register: See smart toilets, furniture for small spaces and other 2016 home design trends

o12rtd-homedesigntrendsmontage

The smart toilets in the Pirch home showroom automatically lift their lids as shoppers approach. A touch of a pad can heat a cold seat, turn on a built-in bidet or even stream music – through a toilet’s speakers.

The gee-whiz stuff at nearby Cisco Home is old, but re-purposed. A grain sifter has become a giant light shade. A conveyer belt and a brake rotor were turned into tables.

High-tech and artisanal may be at opposite ends of the home design spectrum, but both are trendy for 2016.
