Held each year at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the exhibition and conference showcases the best in modern design materials, furniture and accessories, home technology, garden and outdoor materials, kitchen and bath, and international design.

Home Products

This year, more than 2,000 home products were on display at Dwell on Design, from kitchen appliances to lighting, furniture pieces to living room accents. Clint Harp, well known for his unique, hand-crafted furniture designs on HGTV’s "Fixer Upper," had a large display of his works on the floor. Harp’s vision for his company, Harp Design Co., is a hope that each handmade furniture piece brings people together in a home. Secto Design featured a variety of modern pendant lights, while the Art Center College of Design featured colorful home decor, including pillows, lamps and wallpaper.

There were a variety of tiny homes on display this year, including "The Joshua Tree," a colorful, 560-square-foot trailer design by Kim Lewis intended for the “desert dweller." Built on two gooseneck trailers, the home features built-in hammocks, a removable deck, screened-in porch using Parasoleil copper panels, and an open-shelf custom kitchen. Also on display was Happier Camper, an ultra-light, retro-modern, fiberglass camper that features a modular interior.
