Making its Dallas debut this fall, the WestEdge Design Fair will showcase the most exceptional modern design in an environment designed to engage, entertain, and inspire, and will feature more than 100 exhibiting brands. Set for September 16-18, 2022, the WestEdge Design Fair will be co-located with Artexpo Dallas, offering patrons access to two major fairs and three days of eye-popping art and design, located at Dallas Market Hall in the Dallas Design District.
The event opens on Friday, September 16 at 12 p.m. and will continue into the evening with a floor-wide Opening Night Party featuring cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment. General admission access to the Fair will be Saturday, September 17 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 18 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Dwell with Dignity, EarthX and Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.
The design fair will include a variety of feature areas for patrons to visit and learn about the latest trends in modern design. The SKS Culinary Pavilion, sponsored by Signature Kitchen Suite, will host chef demonstrations and tastings from leading chefs and culinary personalities, sharing insight on sous-vide cooking technologies. HOMEwork, a section that speaks to home office design, will offer attendees design inspiration and ideas to more productively navigate the ‘working from home’ trends that have proliferated as a result of the Pandemic. MADE:modern will highlight independent designers and makers of limited edition and one-of-a-kind furnishings, all available for purchase at the event. The Convo By Design Stage will welcome 25+ design industry luminaries for a series of panel talks, with topics ranging from “Design with Art in Mind” to “Sustainable Design.” The Outdoor Lounge will offer guests the chance to take a break from the show floor and engage with the latest in outdoor style from Azzurro Living.
“WestEdge has been a platform for showcasing inspiring products and trends in interior design in Los Angeles since 2013. And the city of Dallas continues to grow with new commercial and residential projects, and its own vibrant design scene. We’re pleased to expand our platform and connect more design professionals and design lovers to new sources of inspiration and education when it comes to their design projects,” said WestEdge Design Fair Principal Megan Reilly.
A few notable exhibitors include: Chad Dorsey/STRIKE Collection, Natufia, Urban Bonfire and Bemma Design, as well several purveyors of custom, one-of-a-kind and pieces such as Swadoh, Brenda Houston and Jason Mizrahi.
