Aldik Home 2018
The holidays are a special time of the year and Aldik Home is the ultimate place to dress-up your home for the season. They offer upscale holiday home décor, with accents such as high quality silk flowers, artificial trees, wreaths, ribbons, ornaments, lights and more.
Customers can buy an ornament on display, or they can go for the whole package and ask the onsite, full-service design team to recreate one of the fully decorated trees on exhibit. Working with the team is free! “If it's a customer's first time coming in it's easy to spot them. They stop short and just take it all in. You can see them saying 'wow' or 'look at this!'” says Aldik Home Media Manager Bryan Gold. “It makes us excited to see people experience it. We also have regular customers that come every year from far and wide to see the brand new displays.”
Aldik Home has been at their Van Nuys location for 46 years. The name came from a combination of the names of the first two owners, Al and Richard. They started out making silk flower arrangements and the business grew from there. Current owner Larry Gold is Richard's son.
Aldik Home is set apart because of the quality and the immersive display. Step in and create the accent of your dreams. There is simply no other store that offers custom arrangements and trees like Aldik, as well as the sheer number of decorations. They have 55 fully decorated Christmas trees – each with its own distinct look, where customers can pluck an ornament if they are so inclined, and in addition, there are 60 Christmas trees in their artificial tree lot. Christmas items are for sale through the beginning of January.
Aldik Home has 3000 styles of ornaments. Glass is popular, and people want gold and glittery ornaments to spice up their trees. There are also Christmas ribbons, Christmas stems, décor, LED lights, oversized ornaments, elves, fairies, and of course Santas. This season Aldik is also featuring a ton of new Christmas lights, such as a series of LED lights in 3 sizes from 36 ft all the way up to 148 ft. Gingerbread themes are also very popular this year for customers with kids or who are just looking for to do something fun. “If it's Christmas themed then we have it,” says Bryan. “Our decorations are really are special. You won’t see holiday décor like this anywhere else.”
Aldik Home offers Neuman Christmas trees – the “Mercedes” of Christmas trees. They are the best you can buy, as their lights are much finer than anyone else. Other tree manufacturers place light strings on the branches and wires are visible. Neuman trees don't use single light strings, they custom manufacture the lights for each tree. All the lights shine perfectly on the tip of the branches. The beautiful ornaments that decorate the trees only add to their luster.
The experience of walking through the store is almost as much fun as decorating your own space. You can see the beauty of the trees and can be inspired. Don't be afraid to try something different and new – if you need a tip Aldik Home's designers are there to help, and they even offer classes on the weekends during the holiday season that teach how to decorate a Christmas tree. “We show people how to fully decorate a Christmas tree with ribbon, lights and other décor – and each time it's different,” says Bryan. “It's a great way for people to take their decorating up a notch and see how the professionals do it.”
