This October, Design Milk is heading back to the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, to attend the Annual WestEdge Design Fair, set up our Milk Stand pop-up shop, and scour the show floor for the best + the latest in West Coast Design! Now in its seventh year, this show will run from October 25-27, 2019 and is open to trade and public. Have you gotten your tickets yet?
We’ll be stopping by the MADE:MODERN section to check out independent designers, makers and artist who will be showcasing their latest limited edition and/or one-of-a-kind furniture, lighting, art and home decor. This year’s section includes Amigo Modern, Fluxco Design, Graci Studio, RAD Furniture, and more.
We never miss the opening night party and this year is no exception. The festive evening includes an open bar, fine food, entertainment and the chance to preview the show floor before the weekend crowds.
This year WestEdge Design has teamed up with Convo by Design to host a dynamic program of talks covering a range of topics presented by industry thought-leaders. A few talks that piqued our interest includes: “Modern World: Life without Frank Lloyd Wright,” “Design with Health & Wellness in Mind,” and “Digital Design Disruption: It’s Not Coming, It’s Here.” Seats are first come, first served and are included in your tickets so be sure to check out the full program here so you can plan to come early!
If you’re a foodie, you’ll want to also stop by the Official Culinary Pavilion for daily demonstrations and yummy tastings. The 2019 line-up has yet to be announced but if it’s anything like last year, you’ll definitely want to put this on your itinerary – your stomach will thank you later.
Last but not least, our Milk Stand pop-up shop is returning for the third year at WestEdge Design. For a break from the show floor and a little retail therapy, stop by the Milk Stand to shop from a curated group of designers + makers who specialize in home accessories, modern jewelry, ceramics, leather goods, and more. We’ll be announcing our full line-up soon, so stay tuned!
So will we see you there? Get your tickets here and we’ll see you on the floor!
