Dwell on Design 2012
Dwell on Design 2012 opened today and Potted was finally there with our own booth! So totally great having our newest designs being admired all day long. So far we’ve met a lot of great people and it’s just the first day.
Even our booth was dutifully admired. We heard the teamsters were very impressed that it was entirely made of pallets.
Here are our new large City Planters that just the day before the show we found numbers for. I think they look great (and so did a lot of other people) and with the magnets we used to mount them, you can put the numbers on them however you want. You gotta love steel.
Just one more photo of our booth and then I’ll show you the rest of the show (or at least a portion because it’s huge this year). Doesn’t the Circle Pot looks amazing in front of the City Planter with the Fan Aloe planted inside?
This is BKB Ceramics who we carry in the store but they have really expended their line and I hope we’ll get some more of these beautiful glazed pots (though I still love their white geometric pots too).
These amazing pieces by Josh Herman Ceramics were gorgeous.
Bend Furniture is made in Los Angeles and is super cool.
And here’s a company we really like, Steel Life. We hope to be at least carrying them on line soon. These planters are truly original.
This company, Half 13, came all the way from New Mexico with these amazing mesh chairs and tables. Total luxury.
The Dwell Outdoor area was huge this year.
There were three prefab houses this time including the C6 from Living Homes (shown here) which we once again were asked to lend our creative contribution to after already contributing to for Palm Spring Modernism Week and the Ted Talk’s Conference where it was featured twice.
I love how they lit the City Planter we had by the entrance.
It was really great seeing our good friends Terra Trellis so well represented in the outdoor section. The Arbor Installation was really lovely. Come see us if you want to order anything from them. We have all their color samples.
Besides all the cool prefab houses, there were also scores of “alternative” habitats like this G-Pod…
And this bubble house that I would have died to have when I was a kid (okay, I would die to have it now…except for the vacuuming part).
Okay, I have to stop. There were so many other things and I think I have at least 400 more photos but you just have to go to the show. Dwell on Design going on now through Sunday. Enter code dodweb12 on line to receive $5 off. Come say hi.
