simply modern, simply ghoulish

To get in the mood, and not break the bank on decorations, it’s not too late to inject a simple element or two into a modern home to spook up festive spirits.

1. all black
2. lots of candles
3. orange accents
4. masks of any kind
5. cobwebs

hint: create a graphic spiderweb using black electrical tape on a glass top table.

CB2 exhibits at dwell on design

In its second year, Dwell on Design was held just weeks before our blog went live—June 26-28th—so we wanted to take the first opportunity to share our participation in this outstanding event. In addition to displaying most of our outdoor furniture and accessories, we gave directions to our new Sunset location and handed out—and ran out of!—reusable canvas totes.

“The West Coast’s Largest Modern Design Event,” conducted by the editors of Dwell magazine and held at the LA Convention Center, the event featured seminars, key-note speakers, and over 175 exhibitors focused on sustainability and innovations for the home. Off-site, self-guided tours of an exclusive collection of must-see homes in the Los Angeles area were also available.

Dwell editors talked with community leaders, builders, designers, artists, architects, craftsmen and entrepreneurs on topics ranging from future-thinking about developing successful design, sustainability, affordability and efficiency, design in the media, urban density, green entrepreneurship, historic preservation, the intersection of architecture and art direction, the growing convergence of design and food, and more.

Curated for a design conscious audience, exhibitors showcased pre-fab home options and smart building materials and ideas for kitchens and baths. Dwell Outdoor inspired with design ideas for outdoor living—including our Resort Sectional shown above—and the latest trend of vertical gardening. The Modern Family area promoted the creativity and originality behind modern design with a multitude of hands-on activities and displays geared towards children of all ages.
