Dwell on Design: The largest Design Fair on the West Coast

 Succulents, Fast Cars, and Beautiful Decor.

 Last week I had the pleasure of attending Dwell on Design in Los Angeles in collaboration with  DesignHounds, and the LA Design Tour courtesy of  Modenus, The Design Resource. 

This event was abuzz with a display of who's who in design, with over 200 exhibitors, and keynote discussions as the editors of Dwell Magazine and Dwell on Design returned to the Los Angeles Convention Center for the latest industry updates. 

PreFab construction resources, outdoor living in trailers, sustainable materials and practices, architecture and design showcases,  keynotes with Karim Rashid and Jonathan Adler, the introduction of the new luxury hybrid Karma Automotive, and more!

Just in case you missed my 

reporting from the field on Instagram

, we're sharing a recap of the Dwell on Design events at Los Angeles Convention Center.

Accommodations and inspiration abound at The Line Hotel, Koreatown, CA 

This event overall included four full days of exhibitions, showcases of the latest products, 

cutting-edge technologies, and speakers

 from the industry all under one roof at the LA Convention Center. Also not to be missed were the

"Dwell Home Tours"

previewing the latest in million dollar architecture and real estate.  Oh, and a rooftop party! 

Take a look. 

2018 KARMA REVERO Test drive!

403 Horsepower engine with a peppy kick

Born Again: The 2017 Karma Revero is the reintroduction of an earlier prototype called the Fisker Auto from

 2012 that unfortunately fell into financial difficulties.  This stylish car is getting a second chance at life thanks to a Chinese auto parts maker, who purchased the

bankrupt Fisker Automotive

 and its battery supplier to bring it back. From the ashes of disaster, we find the new success for the stylish hybrid, Karma sports car.  Oh, and did I mention the

403-horsepower Revero hybrid engine!

Artist, Industrial Designer, Interior Designer, and Entrepreneur,  Karim Rashid delivered a truly inspirational and thought-provoking presentation.  He spoke at length with high energy about the integrities of design and our responsibility for the earth in our decisions and choices.  Such a pleasure to listen too, and consider his message. I am a renewed fan.

The Designhounds team:  They were busy taking notes and listening to Karim. 

OUTDOOR LIVING: Swing table by The Last Workshop

Designed by Ben Hanisch: Everyone is happier in a swing. 

They work well inside or out, and they conjure happy memories of lazy summertime afternoons spent with friends and family. Simple, modern and even more fun with the kinetic movement offered in the swing seat.  Everyone was smiling at this table.
