04 Jun The Great Outdoors, Indoors: A Leafy Recap of Dwell On Design
Oh, expos. The swaggy stalls, the scanning badges, the wandering while wondering how a space this cavernous can exist in such a crowded city. We, love, all of it.
Especially when it’s three-day mega mindmeld Dwell on Design. We were at the event last weekend at the LA Convention Center, which hosted 32,428 attendees there to see the latest in beautifying and streamlining your surroundings.
Imagine 400 exhibitors over 200,000 square feet. Stellar interior design and decor (like Cerno’s mod mixed-media lighting, charming GeoNoggins and the sultry Cocoon fireplaces) were in the house, but we of course swooned extra hard for the outdoor design. There were so many plants there. And so many impressive planters and lots of great outdoor furniture under the show lights shining miles above our heads.
Even better, our friend/the incredible, legendary photographer Julian Mackler was in town from Brooklyn to join the fun.
This year was Dwell on Design’s best-attended in its 10-year history. The event included the exhibition, house tours and talks; we caught Francesca Corra‘s stimulating session on art in the garden, and met lots of exhibitors when we visited last Saturday. The tours we’ll have to save until next time — maybe when the show heads to NYC October 2-4?
While we count the days, here are some of our favorite moments from Dwell on Design LA…
