I am looking forward to WestEdge Design Fair that is opening this weekend in Santa Monica.  Favorite companies based in New York, Denmark, Seattle, such as BDDW, Egg Collective, Apparatus, & Tradition, Hay Denmark, Iacoli & McAllister, and Token, to name a few, will be showing their crafted furniture & lighting at this first time design fair.  Organized by Troy Hanson and Megan Reilly, who I met at last year's Architectural Digest Home Show in New York.  Don't miss this event! See you at the opening party on Thursday! - David John

WestEdgeDesign Fair, the newest destination for modern design, will premiere at The Barker Hangar October 3-6, 2013. This four-day event will cater to the trade, press and public and will feature 150 exhibiting brands, many making their West Coast debut. Attendees will find design inspiration and be able to shop from the best in furniture, lighting, kitchen, bath, outdoor furnishings and other products for the home. The fair features a full design experience, complete with custom installations, a series of special events and notable discussions, panels, and workshops on various design topics and trends. Megan Reilly and Troy Hanson, WestEdge Design Fair co-founders, bring 25 years of collective experience managing and producing some of the design industry’s most important events including the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), NeoCon, NeoCon West and the Architectural Digest Home Design Show.
