In the middle of June, Minta and I went to Los Angeles for one day of sourcing furniture and one day of the Dwell on Design Conference at the LA Convention Center. We enjoyed both days immensely, as well as dinner and a night’s stay at The Line Hotel.

There are so many great furniture, accessories, rugs, art and lighting sources to see and we covered a good bit of ground. Lief is a beautiful space filled with beautiful things.

The Line Hotel is in Koreatown and I got a kick out of my super urban view. In the morning I could see a reflection of the Hollywood Hills on the tall building across the street. Breakfast arrived at my door in a lovely wrapping and was delicious.

At Dwell on Design we attended an interesting lecture, saw lots of fun new products, ran into some familiar faces, marveled at the diversity of products displayed. To name a few: bicycles, hand made ceramic tiles, tomato cages, cardboard iPhone amplifiers, pre-fab houses, light fixtures, furniture, plumbing fixtures, and I am leaving out a lot!  I was very taken with the airplane carts re-purposed as furniture. We got a lot out of the action packed day and look forward to going again next year.
