WestEdge Design Fair Finds

Latest + Greatest

Wow.  I think I’m still recovering from the whirlwind that was the last six weeks.  I hung on by the skin of my teeth, but I persevered and made it happen.  What the heck am I talking about?!  The One Room Challenge everyone!  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, start here.  I refreshed my step-daughter’s room in a major way right in the midst of the Fall Frenzy that is my life.  The good news is that it’s all wrapped up before the holidays and she LOVES the room.  (I did a little happy dance when she said she loved the smell and didn’t want to lose it! It was the sage I placed in there, so we dropped some EO’s in the diffuser and now her space can be permanently Zen.)  So, amidst all the chaos, I hit up the WestEdge Design Fair with my design pal Lenora of 9 Ten Design and haven’t even had a chance to bring you all the awesomeness I spied there!

What is the WestEdge Design Fair you ask?  Well, it’s this cool little boutique design show held every October out in Santa Monica and the Barker Hangar.  WestEdge brings some of the lesser known, progressive artisans and brands to the West Coast to show off their goods.  And then there are some more widely known brands showing off their latest and greatest to the visionaries of the industry.  And WOW, this year did not disappoint!  I highlighted some of my faves here.

Anchal (on-chal)

This super cool sister team not only have an eye for beautiful products, but a social consciousness to boot.  Their handcrafted pieces not only provide employment for exploited women out of Ajmer, India, but are also made from GOTS certified organic cotton.  Anchal’s collection includes bedding, pillows, table linens, scarves + bandanas, kimonos + ponchos (who doesn’t love a poncho!), and the cutest totes + pouches (if you know me, you know I’m a sucker for pouches!)

Oh me, oh my!  Crushing hard on this lighting collection.  Exquisitely crafted lighting and even some furniture pieces. Made where?  Right here in the US!  And they happen to have a social conscious as well.  (Seeing a theme here?)  They proclaim that all their materials come from “a source that employs responsible manufacturing processes” along with employees that are paid proper wages in a safe environment.

WARNING:  My images don’t do these light fixtures any justice. Check out the leather detail on that pendant!  Swoon.

Moya Living

Oh boya, Moya!  Talk about wow factor here.  The cool factor though?  This woman owned company designs and manufactures everything right here in sunny So Cal.  This stunning curved kitchen island is made out of powder coated steel, and steal the show it did!

Jodi Siegal Ceramics

My favorite way to bring artwork and décor into a space is to source from small artisans and craftsmen. I might scour Etsy or shop farmer’s and flea markets.  One of my absolute favorite places to find new artists is the Renegade Craft Fair. I was so thrilled to come across the amazing work of Jody Siegal at WestEdge.  Inspired by her experience with textiles and made right here is Los Angeles, her pieces are textural, colorful, and a stunning addition to any space. Each wall hanging is unique and comprised of handmade ceramic discs.  And don’t worry, she takes custom orders!

THG Paris

Not much needs to be said here.  This jewelry for your faucets speaks for itself.  Established in 1950, the company is still family operated and has committed to an “environmentally conscious workplace.”  With the use of marble, crystal, semi-precious stones, onyx + more, and partnerships with the likes of Baccarat and Lalique, these are true art pieces for your home.

My design gal pal Lenora actually introduced me to this talented glass blower that happened to be showing as well.  Handcrafted right in the OC, this husband and wife duo create not only beautiful sculptures and glassware, but check out this lighting!  A favorite of mine is this Iris sconce.  If you ever find yourself in Santa Ana, stop by the studio; I hear its a blast!

JennAir

Have you ever heard of a sexy refrigerator?  Well, you have now.  Jennair has stepped up the fridge game in a big way.  You can have your matching cabinet panel doors and Yolanda, you can have your perfectly arranged glass fridge, but move over because there is a new door in town!  Would you like shagreen?  How about leather?  Oh, hair hide you said?  Sure, not a problem.  With the new Jennair Cuts, leather refrigeration panels are all the rage with more options on the horizon.

That’s all for this week peeps.  Check back next week after I’ve sifted through all the awesomeness of the One Room Challenge and honor the fabulous wallpapered spaces I’ve found.  Adiós Amigos!

P.S.  Who doesn’t love a little Mulled Wine on Thanksgiving?!  A Scandinavian tradition-I’m taking my Ikea vibes everywhere I go.  Check out this recipe or snag this cute little gift set (that I discovered at Renegade!) and I promise it won’t disappoint. (I mean, what can once you’ve had a glass or two?)

Cooking Gift Set Co.

Mulled Wine

1 bottle red wine

2 cups apple cider

1 orange zested and juiced

¼ cup honey

Mulling spices

Add to a slow cooker and heat on low until warm, about 1 hour.  Leave on “Keep Warm” setting.  You can garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks, or throw them in the slow cooker to add to the flavor like I do.  Makes it look prettier too.

Pssst!  Come closer…(Add some Brandy to kick it up a notch), but I prefer mine without.

And don’t drink and drive friends.  It’s just stupid when you have Uber.  Have a safe and happy holiday! XO

  2. Hi,

    We’re wondering if you’ve ever considered taking the content from brassandbauble.com and converting it into videos to promote on social media platforms such as Youtube?

    It’s another ‘rod in the pond’ in terms of traffic generation, as so many people use Youtube.

    hi, sir, I want you to know that the importance of cleanliness is one of the important things we should do in the world because many people today are just where they are going to waste their time so the world is full of brilliance and severely diseased for future pursuits
