Dwell on Design Expo this Weekend Succeeds At Reaching Out to Families

Family Home Lifestyle

Kid-size Furnishings and Toys to Try Out

The annual Dwell on Design exhibition opened today at the Los Angeles Convention Center for a three-day run.  For sure, those that attend are in for a real feast of the eyes as some truly ultra modern design ideas from a range of large brands and local boutique businesses are on display. 

As I walked the floor I saw solutions for just about every room of the home represented.  From bathroom to kitchen to family and living rooms, to baby and kid-friendly toy rooms and bedrooms.  The show literally extends out into the backyard, too, with a variety of options for the patio and outdoor living.

From technology to art to functional appliances and fixtures for the home, if you like futuristic lifestyle aesthetics you'll love this event.  There are even a few animal habitats such as high tech chicken coops with real chickens inside and several rather extraordinary beds for pet dogs and cats for you to see.  Most vendors are taking orders from designers and do it your selfers and some have product on site for cash and carrying home.

Modern Family is a special area just for kids that's new this year that was curated by InHabitots.  This ties in with Dwell's July/August issue focusing on family-friendly design that goes on newsstands on June 28th.

While parents look at the furnishings available for kids' rooms, the little ones have fun child-size furniture, blocks, and computers to keep them busy.  There's also some performance Heart Beat art and a bike-powered spin art booth to enhance your family's visit to the show.

This is a must-attend for Southern California families who will be (or are thinking about) remodeling their existing homes or will be building from the ground up. 

I look forward to returning again to this celebration of the modern lifestyle on Sunday.  Watch for future posts as I showcase some of my favorite family-friendly products and the companies behind them that I meet and learn about at this event.
