My time at Dwell on Design last weekend was crazy busy but I did steal steal away from the APLD booth a few times to wander the floor. Here are some of my favorite attractions from the show: The first thing I liked right off the bat was the staircase leading to the convention hall. This was plastic, but I can imagine copying any picture or photo onto metal, slicing it up and attaching to the risers of a staircase, be it indoors or outside. An outdoor shower, especially when you have kids (or husbands) and a pool (or not), is such a great and affordable idea. Here is a ready made one from Fermob.
How about this mini camper for travel or the backyard? These bicycles were sturdy-looking and colorful, but what I like best of all is the basket integrated into the handlebars and body. How about this for color? Sue Fisher King makes custom french enameled lava stone tables and countertops in a huge assortment of colors. Look closely at the curves in the wood from old oak barrels And speaking of wine….what do you do with the four bottles of wine that you opened last night and were not able to polish off by yourself?
