WestEdge Design Fair 2013

by ercol on October 2, 2013

barker_logo_homeThis week (3rd to 6th October) sees the inaugural WestEdge Design Fair in Santa Monica, California.  The show is located in the Barker Hangar, a converted aircraft hangar on the South side of Santa Monica Airport.  This historic structure has a dramatic ceiling rising to 43 feet at the centre.  The show is the brainchild of Megan Reilly and Troy Hanson who between them have 25 years experience managing and producing some high profile events within the design calendar, including the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York, at which ercol was awarded best in class for furniture earlier this year.

apr-logoFor WestEdge ercol will be showing the ercol Originals collection – some of our favourite pieces from our back catalogue, lovingly reissued.  We have teamed up with design-lead retailer A+R for the show.  A+R are Andy and Rose, who founded A+R back in 2005.  They describe A+R as “Global design. Edited.  We obsessively seek out the newest products, aiming to offer them first.  We cherry pick the best from the best manufacturers.  We don’t settle for any product simply available through domestic distributors: challenge be damned, we import from anywhere in the world – a distinction many of our competitors cannot claim.  We never sell anything we haven’t personally handled.  We love everything we sell.”

If you’re in the area, do pop in and say hello.
