From the Show Floor: Dwell Outdoor
Abuzz with visitors discovering and testing out all manner of sustainable alfresco products, Dwell Outdoor drew a huge crowd all day Saturday, with many filing in and out of a brand-new modern Airstream trailer and the eco-friendly home designed by ecofabulous founder Zem Joaquin. Standouts were the beautifully designed chicken coop, complete with real chickens, landscape architecture firm Shades of Green’s booth covered completely in real sod, and oversize pebble–like outdoor seating by Eis Design, but every one of the elements on the floor helped bring home the fact that sustainable outdoor living is striking, smart and here for good.

Gainey Ceramics has been turning out crisp, clean-lined ceramicware since the 1940s. Years of perfecting their craft lead to this contemporary take on their iconic Cylinder planter from the 1960s.

- With summer just around the corner, there is no better time and place to plan an outdoor excursion. Take a look at these five functional and sustainable housing units, that embrace nature's charm.
- Dwell Outdoor is center stage at this year’s Dwell on Design, with full-scale prefab structures creating a neighborhood feel.
