Love mod­ern? This fair is a must-see

Los Angeles Times - - HOME & DESIGN - By Lisa Boone lisa.boone@la­times.com

Strolling through Dwell on De­sign is a lot like ex­plor­ing Bur­bank’s new Ikea: Even if you’re just look­ing, it’s fun to see what’s new.

And there will be much to see as roughly 300 ven­dors hit the Los Angeles Con­ven­tion Cen­ter on June 23-25 to share the lat­est fur­nish­ings, ap­pli­ances, tech­nol­ogy and con­cepts.

Not sure you want to at­tend? Read on.

House tours: De­sign fans get a chance to see five homes in Santa Mon­ica, Cul­ver City and Venice on June 24 and five in Hol­ly­wood, Sil­ver Lake and Lau­rel Canyon on June 25. Tick­ets are $110 to $125 and of­ten sell out. Reg­is­ter on­line at la.dwellon­de­sign.com.

More than 20,000 home prod­ucts: Shop for the lat­est prod­ucts from such ex­hibitors as Able and Baker, the Con­crete Col­lec­tive, Bole­floor, Harkavy Fur­ni­ture, Knoll and Nana Wall Sys­tems.

Tiny homes: There will be a va­ri­ety on dis­play, in­clud­ing a 500-square-foot lux­ury home, a 560-square-foot trailer de­sign for the “desert dweller” cre­ated by Kim Lewis and the Hap­pier Camper, an ul­tra-light, retro-mod­ern, fiber­glass camper that fea­tures a mod­u­lar in­te­rior.

Pre­fabs: Method Homes will launch the new Anatta Se­ries, with a fo­cus on in­door-out­door liv­ing.

Min­gle with de­sign­ers: Celebrity de­signer Nate Berkus will be there, as will in­te­rior de­sign­ers and au­thors Mar­tyn Lawrence Bullard and Chris­tiane Lemieux, and ar­chi­tect David Ad­jaye, who re­cently com­pleted the Smith­so­nian Na­tional Mu­seum of African Amer­i­can His­tory and Cul­ture. Ad­jaye will talk with Times ar­chi­tec­ture critic Christo­pher Hawthorne at 11:45 a.m. Fri­day.
