Dwell

This past weekend, the Euro Style Lighting team attended the annual Dwell on Design event located in downtown Los Angeles. Brent provided an overall recap earlier this week, Dwell on Design: Ideas for Better Living if you're interested in reading more about the event.

Like past years, this modern design event lived up to the hype. The 2014 Dwell on Design offered continuous content from more than 200 top minds of design, distinctive exhibitions by more than 400 exhibitors, and thousands of products. Trade and consumer were equally inspired.

Design Pavillions

This year, Dwell Pavilions were introduced to the show floor for the first time, curated by Dwell editors in the following categories:  Design for Humankind, Modern Family, Scandinavian, Energy 360/Technology. Each pavilion included an exhibition of photographs and article excerpts from the Dwell archives alongside products that truly brought the pages of the magazine to life. 

The Pavilion we found most fun was the Modern Family exhibit. If you love modern design, have children or are thinking about having children, this was the place to be. So many fun products and talented exhibitors.

Ideas for the Modern Family

Casa Kids builds contemporary children's furniture: loft beds, bunk beds, desks, storage units and entire custom rooms. Their furniture is long-lasting and sustainable and their modular approach allows their furniture to grow with your kids.

Parents eagerly spoke to the representatives about purchasing off the floor, which is one of the most exciting opportunities available at Dwell on Design.

Lille Huset proves that kids toys don't have to be tacky. The collection of designs are inspired by little modern houses all over the world that people live in and love.

This small but growing design business creates a new kind of dollhouse for a new kind of kid.
