The CA Boom show went down in LA last week. (Party in the hills, etc.) The show featured a selection of California-based design and architecture:

CA Boom combines displays from contemporary independent designers, architects & manufacturers, tours of cutting edge homes and a speaker’s conference whose participants are the leaders and innovators of the contemporary design community.

We sent our copywriter Jeff, a camera, and access to the massive Design Public expense account, well-known throughout the design industry for its ability to fund a family of one through at least a salad course. Enjoy the show. [photos by Eric Anderson]

Want more on CA Boom? James at Land+Living has a nice debrief with some pics.

I’ve been prioritizing other things over new furniture for the past ten years – important parenting essentials, like a glider rocker and a steady supply of Bombay Sapphire.
