Who doesn’t like Dwell Magazine and the style it shares with us all? I love to see all the latest in greatest architecture and home furnishings - maybe that's why I enjoy real estate so much! For those of us lucky enough to live in Los Angeles, Dwell on Design will be at the L.A. Convention Center June 22-24th. Dwell on Design is the largest design event on the West Coast and it is being curated by none other than the editors of Dwell Magazine.
The three day extravaganza showcases the best and brightest products and services plus leaders in modern design. Not only will there be more than 350 exhibitors on the showroom floor, there will also be 150 presentations on three different stages throughout the event. Exhibit categories include: design materials and technology, furniture and accessories, kitchen and bath, modern lifestyle, solar and energy, small office/ office, automotive, baby/kids and prefab architecture. Would you like to take a test drive in a green car? What about checking out the latest in outdoor furniture and fixtures form prefabs, shrubs, sheds planters and to chicken coops!
Basically Dwell on Design at the Los Angeles Convention Center has something for everybody and definitely enough to fill the weekend. Seminars, displays and simply too much to see and do to describe here.
