1. DWELL is more than just a showcase for home furniture.
  2. There was only one architecture firm there. Pretty Surprising.
  3. The whole event was a cross between creative designers, artisans, and innovators.
  4. Designers today focus beyond functional spaces and beautiful objects. They also design lifestyles of comfortability and conveniency.
  5. The vendors promoted their products well and were not pushy about selling them.
  6. A couple of vendors brought in equipment to show how their products are made including a loom machine and a leather monogramming device.
  7. Other vendors provided iPads and computer stations for online store browsing.
  8. Visitors were able to interact directly with all products at the convention.
  9. DWELL provided play areas for kids using products created by the vendors.
  10. They really needed to place their free tote bags closer to the entrance because we like free stuff and it’s the first thing we should see.
  11. DWELL teamed up with IMM COLOGNE this year: an international tradeshow based in Cologne, Germany allowing for the convention to showcase works from around the world.
  12. Today’s market allows for individual-based businesses to soar.
  13. There was a VR Lounge! We saw a kid become a true fruit ninja!
  14. There was also a Tiny House, shipping container, and a 2 story prefab home with a living wall at the venue. One of them held a live cooking show to promote kitchen appliances… but food :(
  15. There seemed to be heated cast stone benches everywhere and a Prius in every corner (I’m sort of exaggerating).
  16. I got news that we missed out on an infamous Beer Garden…
  17. I would go again!
