The newest destination for modern design, the fair showcases a curated selection of more than 150 leading national and international brands, many new to the West Coast. Attendees will find design inspiration and be able to shop from leading manufacturers of furniture, lighting, kitchen, bath, outdoor furnishings, and other products for the home. The show caters to trade, press and consumers alike, and offers a complete experience for attendees, including panel discussions and workshops, culinary activities, custom installations, a series of special events, and an opening-night party to benefit Heal the Bay.

"Given the demand for such an event, coupled with Los Angeles’ reputation as a premier design hub, we felt the time was right to pursue the opportunity.”

WestEdge will offer much more than inspiration—it’s a unique shopping experience for those who appreciate exceptional design.” For more information and ticketing, go to westedgedesignfair.com.
