Dwell on Design, America’s largest design show, returned to Los Angeles Convention Center this month. The three-day event was a celebration of modern design, with 400 exhibitors and over 2000 products. With a focus on looking beyond the urban dwelling and on the hunt for the new modern products, the exhibit expanded to the outdoor area that included the best prefabs and landscaping. A resurgence of luxurious design, bold neon colors and many other cutting-edge creations, here are some of my favorites at this year’s show as well as a few from last years.
At an early age I set out to see the world, and while having already visited over 50 countries, I feel that my journey is just beginning. For me, travel and design go hand in hand. Whether seeking out great shops in trendy neighborhoods or exploring the architectural environment around me, discovering design inspiration everywhere I go enriches me to transform a client’s needs and desires into into their dream home.
