This past weekend, Dwell
that modern design magazine we all know and love, put on the West Coast's largest design event at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The fun three-day extravaganza, called Dwell on Design
, focuses on modern living - everything from green and outdoor spaces to innovative design and decor. They even conduct home tours, arrange panels and put on demonstrations. For those just interested in witnessing the latest trends, Dwell invites you to walk their large exhibit space to experience a pop-up village of prefabs or lounge around on modern indoor and outdoor furniture. Now in its sixth year, Dwell claims that over 20,000 people attended their event.
This was my second year and I have to say that no one puts on an exhibition like Dwell. From Designboom's
unique magazine library display to Molo's cloud lamps
suspended high above, you just feel like you're walking inside the house of your dreams. Near the entrance, the Herman Miller
booth even welcomes you with their Eames chairs!
Here are some of our photos from the event. The highlights? The running rain shower heads (who doesn't dream about having those) and meeting the editor-in-chief of one of today's best design blogs, Birgit Lohmann from Designboom
Finally, what trend was the most apparent? The use of reclaimed materials like rescued wood or upcycled scrap lumber into really beautiful tables.
