6 Small studios exhibiting at westedge design fair that we love
November 1, 2016 / Online exclusive
One of the great things about WestEdge Design Fair (happening this weekend in Santa Monica, CA!) is the mix of big and small companies exhibiting. These six independent studios caught our eye—check them out along with the rest of the show festivities this weekend. As proud media sponsors, we are happy to be able to offer $5 off tickets with promo code GRAY. See you there!
As editors, sometimes we feel like no new design can surprise us. Kim Markel's whimsical yet polished designs made from reclaimed plastic and bio-resin surprised us, and in a good way—she has made something different seem somehow essential.
Jenifer Janniere's brass furniture collection fits the bill for those seeking that perfect, glam brass piece that will always be in style. Janniere is one to watch; she just started her studio a year ago.
We were immediately drawn to Nima Abili's Brutile collection, probably because of our love of the iconic 1970 Superstudio Quaderna collection for Zanotta (and who doesn't love a good pun name?). Clad in actual tile, Abili’s exploration of geometric forms brings an interesting new layer of materiality into the living space.
Join us November 3-6 at WestEdge Design Fair. Don't forget $5 off tickets with promo code GRAY! Tickets HERE.
