Is there a secret furniture district or similar somewhere in Los Angeles?

Where to get a great deal on new furniture in Los Angeles (Not Ikea)? Is there a furniture district or something? Surely there must be great deals to be had in some sort of industrial part of town or something, and not just Ikea, Plummer's, garage/estate sales, and Craigslist, right?

Specifically, I need to get a sofa, nice bookshelves, and a bunk bed for kids. I like mid-century modern looking stuff, but I'm not necessarily looking for places that just have that sort of thing.
Really, what I'm asking is this: Other than Ikea, Craigslist, Plummer's, and garage/estate sales, is there some sort of furniture district or something like that where there are direct-from-the-factory or similar furniture warehouse places in Los Angeles? There seem to be places like that here for pretty much everything else.
On the East Coast, there are places like this (e.g. Green Front in DC). Given that I like LA more and more, and that I left the East Coast to live here all those years ago, there must be something like this here, right?
