I can’t believe Westedge Design Fair is already in its 4th year… For the first three years I felt like Westedge was in its infancy—trying to figure out the LA market, what makes sense for attendees, and how to effectively create an exciting show that was a good mix of designers, makers and trade. This year, however, I noticed that it felt more professional, more polished and—most importantly—more diverse. Here are some of the goodies I most enjoyed at the show:
Matt Gagnon’s incredible wood installation canopy in the Roche Bobois/Missoni Home lounge area.
Brenda Houston’s gorgeous gemstone photographic wallpapers, and now—pillows!
I could not help but love this matte black range from Tecnogas.
These edgy sconces by Zia-Priven
Upholstered fabric and leather chairs by BlankBlank
New milking stools by CBM Woodworks
Great chair from Housefish
Chargebots by Lewis + Clark Lamps
Beautiful handmade wood furnishings by Andree Areno.
Cool MCM style birdhouses complete with green living walls and roofs from Sourgrassbuilt!
New concrete terrazzo from Concrete Collaborative
David Trubridge – sigh. I want everything.
I loved these pieces by Jenifer Janniere.
Millicent Furniture might be the first modern design company that I’ve seen from New Mexico! All of their pieces are hand-carved, and they even source their own trees…
And last but not least, M. Shively designed an entire playground complete with swings, a sliding board, seesaw and a tire swing to showcase his furniture and lighting, plus show off his custom capabilities!
