The Agenda: WestEdge Design Fair, Fall Antiques Show, and Timothy Corrigan


Trade Show

WestEdge Design Fair

It’s not a textbook trade show—the second annual WestEdge Design Fair is geared to both industry professionals and design enthusiasts looking to outfit their homes. The event floor will have the usual 150-plus exhibitors, but the highlights are Friday’s opening party benefiting the A+D Museum in LA (where you can enter to win tickets to Modernism Week in Palm Springs) and the weekend’s panel discussions. Check out “The Art of Entertaining in California” presented by California Home + Design’s very own Jennifer Mehditash and “Rock Star Architecture: Creative Design for Recording Business” whether or not you’re in the music biz. And don’t miss “SuperPAC,” the group exhibit curated by Design Milk. 

When: Thurs. 10/16 – Sun. 10/19

Where: Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Ave., Santa Monica



SF Fall Antiques Show

Everyone who’s anyone in the design community knows that the SF Fall Antiques Show is a must-attend. This year’s exhibit theme, “Rush of Gold: Precious Metals in Art and Antiques” is a nod to the city’s history, specifically the Gold Rush of 1849 and the Silver Rush of 1881. Both periods shaped the economy and industry of what has come to include the entire Bay Area. See, through a showcase of jewelry and objets d’art, how California came to be known as The Golden State and still upholds the nickname today. 

When: Thurs. 10/23 – Sun. 10/26

Where: Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion, Marina Blvd. and Buchanan St., San Francisco
