We’re Gearing Up for a Week of Great Design in NYC with WantedDesign

We’re excited to be a partner of this year’s WantedDesign! If you’re in NYC next week for the design celebration that is NYCxDESIGN, The City’s 11-day festival that showcases New York as a dynamic and unique design destination, please make sure to add WantedDesign to your must-attend event schedule.

Our friends Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat launched WantedDesign in 2011. Since its launch, the event has established itself as a premier creative destination for the international design community and will again bring together national and international participants for a vibrant four day experience. The show will offer innovative installations, memorable products, a pop-up store, interactive experiences, convivial lounges, thought-provoking student workshops, engaging discourse and more.

This year adds a fresh direction with programs that follow the daily themes of Design Around the World, Designing, Making, Transforming, and What’s Next in the U.S.A.?, with each day featuring supporting conversations. In addition to the “Conversation Series” co-presented by Metropolis Magazine, the show features nearly 60+ exhibitors, including several of our favorites such as DWR, Egg Collective, David Trubridge, and Blackbody. For the full list of exhibitors, click here.

 

Located in the exceptional landmark Terminal Stores building on 11th Avenue, WantedDesign promises to be a highlight of our week back in NYC. The event, which runs May 16-19, is free to the trade (registration required); general public tickets are $20 online or  $25 at the door.

Paris Calling this January

Flights are booked, Accommodations sorted, and the daily additions to our agenda have begun!
We can’t wait to return to Paris this January for MAISON&OBJET and Paris Deco Off

The annual, week-long affair, is the decorating world’s equivalent to Fashion Week. Paris Deco Off offers an endless array of interior design trade showrooms, pop-ups, and exhibitions fling open their doors to celebrate their newest collections of textiles, carpets, lighting, and furniture. Coupled with MAISON&OBJET (January 18-22) and it’s 8 halls of design objects, furnishings and accessories for the home, it’s a truly inspiring way to kick off the New Year in the City of Lights.

Last year we hosted a group of American designers with a VIP experience to MAISON&OBJET and we’ve partnered with our M&O friends again to host a day-long excursion to the fair on Monday, January 21. The day is complimentary for guests as part of our VIP program and you can see details HERE. Space is limited so hop aboard and plan to join us by RSVP’ing to Megan@WestEdgeDesignFair.com.

There is no shortage of events, parties and ways to connect with the American and global design communities while in Paris. We are working with Kneedler Fauchere to stay up to date on all the great happenings taking place. Kneedler Fauchere has been building community and promoting the January events for several years now, and each year seems to attract more and more of our American friends making the trip. Check out the KF website HERE for a list of events so far, including their welcome reception on January 16 and the highly anticipated American Party in Paris party which takes place on Friday, January 18. Get tickets for that HERE.

So many reasons to join us in Paris! And we haven’t even touched on the museums, patisseries and shopping (annual January sales, Mais Oui)… Stay tuned for more as we plan for the trip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Other Art Fair LA- October 25-28

WestEdge is pleased to be a partner of Saatchi Art’s THE OTHER ART FAIR LOS ANGELES which opens this evening and runs through Sunday at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.

We’re just off the heels of WestEdge but looking forward to taking in The Other Art Fair as visitors this weekend. The event  highlights include an immersive installation by guest artist Gary Baseman and special all-female art exhibition “31 Women” curated by Soho House’s Kate Bryan.

Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair, a leading international art fair championing emerging and independent contemporary artists, returns October 25-28 at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar, where 130 artists from around the world will showcase their works alongside exclusive new artwork by Guest Artist Gary Baseman and a special all-women exhibition entitled 31 Women.

“The Other Art Fair is non-elitist, fun, democratic and fosters a genuine connection between the public and the artists exhibiting,” said Kate Bryan, arts broadcaster and global Head of Collections for Soho House.

The Other Art Fair Los Angeles will open on Thursday, October 25 with a Private View sponsored by MINI USA. Proceeds from the Private View ticket sales will support ProjectArt, The Other Art Fair Los Angeles’ official non-profit partner, an organization that transforms the nation’s public libraries into vital cultural hubs by offering year-round visual art classes for youth and providing studio spaces for emerging visual artists.
