It’s that time of year again. Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar is rolling back its massive doors for the sixth WestEdge Design Fair, Oct. 18-21, allowing dreams of home renovation and renewal for trend-seeking designers, architects and contemporary design enthusiasts to take flight.
It’s the rare show with a to-the-trade, insider vibe that also happens to be open to the public. Wanna buy a fancy soaking tub? The latest in cooking technology or the kind of contemporary lighting, furnishings and fixtures you read about in magazines? WestEdge provides a look at modern design trends and industry direction as well as access to designer brands and a range of experts.
The dog-friendly show is also introducing Bark-er Hangar, a place for canine creatives to mix and mingle while sniffing out the new, high-end line of dog furnishings from Los Angeles-based company Barkiture.
