We really loved the Kohler booth; it was probably our favorite booth (and not just because they had a phone charging station!) I think they did a great job of embracing and promoting their collaboration with Jonathan Adler.

The booth, which was actually a shipping container painted chartreuse, was over the top: the staff were colorfully dressed and when Jonathan himself stopped by, they served fancy blue drinks and blue and yellow cotton candy. Oh look here he is:

Eastvold Furniture had a simple, stacked booth with some beauties.

Urbio was one of my faves – I’ve been coveting these since Sabrina Soto mentioned them in her Friday Five… They are modular magnetic containers perfect for plants, tools, supplies, just about anything! Now that I’ve seen it in person, I need it even more.
