The WestEdge Design Fair this last weekend had its moments, but far and above the standout was winning an award from Metropolis Magazine for the Karimoku New Standard Collection showcased in the A+R booth. Karimoku was among the 8 incredible lines, many of them new to North America, which we presented during the 4-day design fair at The Barkar Hangar in Santa Monica. We hosted the west coast debuts of the Orignals collection for UK heritage house Ercol, including the stunning sofa covered in textile by Timorous Beasties, as well as the metallic-faced Qlocks from Biegert & Funk and the new Loop speaker by Libratone. There was the North American unveiling of the Cartesia Desk Collection by Japanese brand Colors. And we had new lighting and furniture from Danish brands &Tradition, Muuto and Hay. Click through the slide show for a lookback at opening night at our booth.

And drop by our Los Angeles stores on La Brea and on Abbot Kinney, where much of these items will be residing now.

A big THANK YOU to all our partner brands. A special shout out to Kazumasa Hirano of Colors, Hailey Malone of Libratone and our own Conor Ford. We couldn’t have been the hit of the show without you!
