EVENTS: Dwell on Design 2015, LA, May 29-31

Arcways stairway, manufactured in Neenah, WI

Beam me up, Scottie! More than 400 exhibitors will present 2000+ midmod home furnishing and construction products at next weekend's Dwell on Design extravaganza, running May 29 - 31. The three-day exhibition and conference, comprising one trade day and two consumer days, will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. World-class speakers, product demonstrations, classes for design professionals, and workshops for design enthusiasts will make this exhibition especially accessible and exciting.

A focus of the event, addressing the severe drought situation in California, will be environmentally friendly landscape design. Homeowners will discover ways to replace water-thirsty grasses with native California plants, drought-tolerant flora, and stonework. (Many years ago, a friend of mine who had grown tired of mowing his huge lawn, joked that he should tear it out and pave it over. Looks like his remark was prophetic!)
