This past week I attended the opening party for the Los Angeles Modernism Show, taking place through the weekend at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The show features over fifty exhibitors displaying 20th century furniture, decorative and fine art from across the US and Europe. Most all the exhibitors (with a few exceptions) are based here in Southern California. The event also benefits P.S. Arts, a charity working to improve the lives of children by providing arts education (a charity I’ve mentioned and featured greatly on the blog). The show featured some amazing finds – and here is what caught my eye (among the celebs in attendance)!
It was lovely to meet and see actress Courtney Cox! (Her fellow Friends star Lisa Kudrow was also in attendance.)
My “design partner in crime” and fellow blogger Christian of Maison21 attended the event with me too.
Loved this glam gold console featured in one of the exhibitor booth’s at the Los Angeles Modernism Show.
Lots of artwork among the vendors, including abstracts, pop art, and geometric pieces like this one.
Maison21 looking quite serious among some modern colorful pop art.
I would say the Joannes Lucas booth was the most eclectic of all the vendors, with the theme “Zoo” going on.
But I have to say, I quite liked this guy.
And wouldn’t doubt this would be a conversation piece at any party.
One of our favorites, is the Christopher Anthony Ltd space (which we had also seen at last Fall’s Art & Antiques Show). Again, another hit – featuring some great finds – including the console and accessories above (and below).
We had our eye on this vintage fireplace screen.
I thought this gilded geometric wall sculpture was pretty cool.
More from Christopher Anthony Ltd – modern metal and glass side tables.
Off the Wall Antiques featured some great items, too – such as this large scale chandelier.
These textured wall tiles were a fave of Maison21′s.
I quite liked these retro textured pair of doors.
Lot’s of abstract art was on display, both gallery style among the aisles and in the vendor booths. I think seeing all the various pieces of art was one of my favorite things (well, among so much else!).
If you missed the show this year, be sure to mark your calendar for next year!
