June 24, 2014This past weekend we headed to downtown LA for our very first Dwell On Design show. We are huge fans of Dwell so this event was a no-brainer. We have only heard great things about this show, so we were excited to get set up and see what Dwell On Design was all about. As America's largest design event, we found ourselves asking "Why have we not shown here before!?" It was unreal to say the least...I'm sure most have you have seen us post about The HEX Bus: our mobile retail pop-up shop. Of course we drove it in to show off our new collections and we couldn't have asked for a better spot! As part of Dwell's Outdoor Exhibit, we were placed around some huge and amazing pre-fabricated homes. We were surrounded by awesome neighbors such as Bend Goods, Sprouting Sprocket and a giant Airstream trailer. Being right next to the beer garden didn't hurt either!
The neat thing about Dwell On Design is that the show is a Trade Show as well as a retail event. So we were able to show off some of our Fall & Holiday 2014 Collections as well as sell current gear. We brought a ton of stock from our new Outpost, Hayward, Gallery, Option-G and Supply (coming soon) collections and we had an overwhelming response. Thanks to everyone that came by and picked up a bag or phone case from us, enjoy!
This show was amazing. They showcased everything from furniture to kitchen appliances to massive houses. Anyone and everyone focusing on design and innovation was here and there was inspiration everywhere! We had a great weekend and you will definitely see us at Dwell On Design next year!
Keep an eye out for the HEX Bus, we are always on the road at different events such as trade shows, concerts, pop-up markets and street fairs. Here are some photos from a recent night market put on by LA Canvas. They invited us out for an exclusive warehouse sale featuring brands like Stussy, Love Nail Tree, Lee and Hotel 1171. The space got packed, gear got sold and everyone had a great time!
