Out on the Town: The 2018 Westedge Design FairAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Celebrating its sixth-annual edition, this year the WestEdge Design Fair welcomed 175 exhibiting brands, and more than 13,000 top-tier architects, interior designers, set decorators, consumers and educators to the dynamic design exhibit.
The fair launched with the Opening Night Party, presented by Pacific Sales Kitchen & Home, benefitted the organization Safe Place For Youth (SPY). Over 2,000 guests came out to enjoy the night that included a silent auction of Knoll’s recently re-introduced piece, the Harry Bertoia Molded Shell Side Chair. The chairs were reimagined by top A&D influencers including Gensler, Shimoda Design Group, and Los Angeles street artist, Ruben Rojas, among others, with these on-of-a-kind art pieces unveiled at the party. All proceeds from the auction went to SPY whose mission is to inspire, nurture and empower the resilient human spirit of homeless youth by providing immediate and lasting solutions, one young person at a time.
Guests also got a sneak peek of the fair while enjoying cocktails and hospitality throughout the venue including the indoor Tidelli x California Home+Design lounge designed by César Giraldo as well as the outdoor lounge furnished by VONDOM, Les Jardins Solar, and El Portico and San Ysidro. Music for the evening was presented by DJ Esteban Lopez and the evening’s hospitality sponsors included TRUE Residential, Kona Brewing Co., Ravella Tequila, Woodford Reserve and WTSO.
