It’s that time of year again—from June 23 to June 25, tens of thousands will converge on the Los Angeles Convention Center for Dwell on Design 2017, the largest modern design fair on the West Coast.

The Dwell on Design event floor is a rich resource for designers and architects, retailers, and design enthusiasts alike, showcasing the latest in furnishings, home technology, outdoor living, kitchen and bath, and everything in between. Check out the Digital Event Magazine to get a glimpse of who will be participating. 

And don’t forget to say hello to Dwell at Booth 2330—we’ll have pieces from the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection, designed by Chris Deam and Nick Dine exclusively for Target, in tow.

An impressive lineup of speakers, main stage presentations, and learning sessions hosted in the Mod\Pod Learning Labs await you. Whether you’re a professional earning Continuing Education Units, a homeowner seeking an on-site consultation on a project, or an up-and-comer drawing inspiration from today’s design visionaries, Dwell on Design has something for every agenda. 

Don’t miss this year’s featured speakers: TIME most influential architect Sir David Adjaye in conversation with Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne; designer and tastemaker for Hollywood’s elite Martyn Lawrence Bullard; design entrepreneur and Cloth & Company founder Christine Lemieux and co-founder Meganne Wecker, who will announce the winners of the textile design contest; and Cooper Hewitt’s 2016 National Design Mind Award winner Bruce Mau.

Spanning 17,000 square feet, the Dwell Outdoor floor showcases innovations in outdoor furnishings and decor alongside three full-scale prefab homes arrayed with sustainable technology. The Architecture and Design Film Festival will screen short films in partnership with Open Air Cinema, while Happier Camper will host a photo booth and bar where attendees can meet and relax over a beverage. 

Guests who stop by AutoCamp’s outdoor experience will get a taste of the boutique Airstream campground, whose Russian River location we had the opportunity to visit last year. In addition to holding fireside chats, AutoCamp is giving away three-day stays in Sonoma County to three lucky Dwell on Design attendees.

Home Tours 

In 2016, the Home Tours included the Piccus Residence in Venice, a house built by Chris Rudin of Rudin Donner Design that's filled with the homeowner's eclectic art collection.

Modern by Dwell Magazine Coffee Table
Modern by Dwell Magazine Coffee Table
The Coffee Table from the brand new Dwell x Target collection serves multiple purposes. Besides acting as a handsome, low-profile cocktail table for your living space, it also acts as a type of open storage. The two layers allow you to store magazines and books without having to clutter the main surface. The three-legged round table is shown here in white/natural, but for a bolder look, you can choose to purchase it in black/copper—both of which cost only $149.99.

We believe that great modern design should extend to every part of our lives. That’s why we created an extensive number of products for our Dwell x Target collection—even accessories for both indoor and outdoor living. Case in point, the Hexagonal Concrete Planters are clean and graphic containers where you can pot your favorite greenery, either in a sunroom or out on the patio. It’s available in two sizes (small and large), both of which come in a natural gray hue and range from $69.99 to $89.99. The geometric shape allows for a variety of modular arrangements when multiples are grouped together.
