WestEdge Design Fair and BlogTourCali

image-3

October was a very busy month for us over at Zephyr! We attended WestEdge Design Fair and also partnered with Modenus for BlogTourCali, which were both incredible events.

WestEdge, which is held at the Barkar Hangar in Santa Monica, drew nearly 8,500 interior designers, architects, art directors, artists and design industry leaders. We love to attend these shows to see what’s new in our appliance world and also get inspiration from true design enthusiasts and artists. Highlights included cooking and grilling demonstrations, an outdoor lounge designed and furnished by Lotus Home, panel discussions on The Consummate Kitchen, Craftsmanship in the Digital Age, The Art of Entertaining in California, and Using Color for Maximum Effect.

Modenus is a comprehensive digital resource for design professionals and design enthusiasts that hosts blogger tours throughout the world around leading design events, such as WestEdge. This year, #BlogTourCali was comprised of 15 international design and lifestyle bloggers that were selected by Modenus based on their blog content, social media presence and credibility in the design industry. The group met in Santa Monica and traveled up the California Coast to Zephyr’s San Francisco Showroom for an event with our Cheng Collection designer, Fu-Tung Cheng.

We’ll be sharing more of the articles from the bloggers around these events soon, so stay tuned!

Below are some photos from the events. Enjoy!
