Gone Fishin’ in Los Angeles
June 27, 2011 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
I’ve gone fishin’…not for fish, but for ideas. I’m here in Los Angeles, where I attended Dwell on Design, tasted lasagne cupcakes from Heirloom, a food truck where we had to have our car valet parked–only in LA, and a first for me. I experienced some new designer furniture and accessories at The Design Truck, a mobile design gallery that parks curbside with a different food truck at each stop. The travelling shop is the creation of designer duo Brendan Ravenhill and Chris Adamick, who are to furniture design what gourmet food trucks are to street dining.
Kelly Lamb’s hanging planters and Apollo Designs’s Sake Bomb.
Chris Adamick’s Chic Stools at Design Truck.
Today I am off to the Brentwood Country Mart to sample the food at FarmShop and enjoy the gorgeous weather until my flight lifts off tomorrow for New York. Stay tuned for what I am bringing back for you from the Left Coast…
