Santa Monica Barker Hangar -West Edge Design Fair
On Modenus Blog Tour Cali we celebrated West coast design at the West Edge Design fair, located at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar. West Edge was one of the Tour's sponsors so it was great to connect at the October fest party! Here's who puts the Design fair all together. The fair had a progressive vibe with more than 150 inspiring exhibitors displaying contemporary furniture, lighting, accessories, kitchen and bath products and outdoor furnishings. At night the Hangar transformed into a night clubby feel with edgy music and celebs abound like Ty Pennington, Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Kathryn Ireland. Even got a pic with Kathryn!! So much fun!
