Back in June, I attended a breakfast event with Panasonic in conjunction with the Dwell on Design event taking place in Los Angeles. Our breakfast was hosted at the fabulous downtown LA restaurant, Faith & Flower, designed by AVRO | KO. I was taken by the interiors and photographed the space. For a full view, visit the Faith & Flower gallery website here or the designer website. Below are some of my highlights. (The food is great too, highly recommend!)

Last week I attended the annual Dwell on Design event here in Los Angeles. The event covers many of the latest and innovative products in design, including everything from bath and kitchen design, to flooring and wall applications, to furniture and lighting, exterior and outdoor products, and even prefab houses and cool cars!

Here’s a spotlight on some of the finds featured at this year’s event:

These cool numbers and letters are from Architectural Numbers.com (local here in LA).

Fermob has a great line of outdoor products.

FormDecor pretty much has the coolest stuff you’ll find in furniture rental, yes, rental!

10255115_10152243337811275_7701533213803853376_n

Modern Urban Planters carries a line of very cool corrugated steel planters for both indoor and outdoor use.

Coolest porcelain tiles ever from Pental.

One of the most innovative in bathroom technololgy goes to Geberit: and the ability to flush a toilet from their Sigma80 flush plate.

10422378_10152243399406275_8277226525109659138_n

Touring the prefab houses was really cool, especially this one from Altius.

Cube Depot is really cool, these are made from shipping containers.

Loved all the vibrant color at Sunbrella!

TopBrewer has the coolest in coffee making technology: straight from a faucet on your countertop at the touch of an iPad / iPhone button!

10460210_10152243344561275_100842300923325967_n

Accessories, like the graphic pillows above, and glam furniture below are from LA local ModShop.

Panasonic had all the latest in appliances and small electronics. The coolest? A cordless home phone that turns your iPhone into a landline phone. Pretty amazing!

10488174_10152243344131275_9078605514334740878_n

Best Range Hoods showcased some pretty spectualar hoods, including one that is flush ceiling mounted for a seamless minimal design.

10485300_10152243343431275_3975788696568227990_n

D&M Flooring has some really cool flooring products – vast array of products – solid, engineered, smooth, brushed, fumed, carbonized, and hand scraped. The product above is called SQR and they are wood floor tiles.

Thank you to Geberit for inviting me to attend Dwell on Design this year.

For Blog Tour to happen, it takes great sponsors and Blog Tour NYC was no exception: DXV, Wilsonart, Donghia, Mr.Steam, NousDecor, and Blanco America all came together to align with Modenus. Thanks to their great support and involvement they contributed to the experience we, as bloggers, had during our trip to NYC.

DXV provides meticulously crafted fixtures and faucets that celebrate the movement of over the past hundred years. The bathroom above, by designer Meredith Heron and created using DXV fixtures, is titled Modern Gatsby.

Wilsonart LLC

Laminate has come along way: this amazing kitchen features Golden Romano Wilsonart® HD® High Definition® Laminate countertops with a Wilsonart® Crescent Decorative Edge (image via Pinterest).

JillSeidner1

While at ICFF on Blog Tour NYC, we visited the Wilsonart booth where we got to see chairs on display designed by students using Wilsonart products – really cool designs!

JillSeidner2

The designer and his chair – one very interactive piece!

Donghia

As I am very familiar with the Donghia showroom here in Los Angeles, it was neat to tour and learn about the history of Donghia as we did when we visitied the D&D Building showroom location.

Their pieces can be defined as classic, unique, timeless. A look at their Pinterest boards, and easily inspired by the amazing collections.

I loved these glass lamp bases I saw during our showroom visit. (And yet, I’ve seen them forever in the LA showroom, hence the definition of timeless.)

Mr. Steam

JSID

Well, we actually know Mrs. Steam, and we love her, and her name is Martha. She is the one behind Mr. Steam and has been a great supporter of Blog Tour (along with hosting us on some fun events!). One of which was a visit to Aire Ancient baths for a spa day while on Blog Tour NYC.

BLANCO makes some pretty impressive sinks and faucets. I am a fan of their minimilist, clean lines and the hideaway sinks featured in the Crsytalline collecion. (*While meeting up with Blog Tour LA when they came to town, our local Poggenpohl showroom hosted an event with Blanco and Gaggeneau, this is a great post by Geraldine from Little Blue Bell)

NousDECOR

NousDECOR is a platform for creating concept boards and described as a way to “Visualize your dream interior. We’ll help you bring it to life.” As a fan of creating concept boards, I enjoyed perusing over the many the site features and looking forward to creating some of my own too!

Blog Tour NYC presented by Modenus

We came, we saw, and we sure did exerience: what happens on Blog Tour NYC gets put all over social media. A few days of whirlwind activities and this blog tour was no exception: cocktail parties, dinner parties, Wanted Design, Kips Bay Showhouse, a private designer residence tour, a meet & greet with NousDecor, an afternoon at ICFF with Mr. Steam and Wilsonart, an exclusive party at MOMA, the High Line walk with Mr. Steam, an intimate dinner with DXV, a private showroom visit to Donghia, and a farewell dinner at the L’Ecole International Culinary Center. Just to summarize.

The best part? A great team. Hosted by Veronika of Modenus, her continued efforts and hard work coordinating one succesful blog tour after another came through again for this tour and I was beyond thrilled to be included as one of the most international groups of bloggers ever as part of Blog Tour NYC. To meet the great group of bloggers that I got to know and bond with personally, visit: Meet The Bloggers

In the coming days, I will be featuring some one on one posts covering the events we attended and the sponsors who all made Blog Tour happen. For now, I thought I would start off with some highlights of a glimpse into my Blog Tour NYC.

And be sure to follow Modenus on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for recaps from all the bloggers – we all have much to share!

1JillSeidner

First things first: checking into the CitizenM Hotel Times Square (a unique boutique hotel concept conveniently located just off Broadway). Staying here was all very deja vu for me as I had stayed at their London location while on Blog Tour London.

JillSeidner2

Straight from check in and it was rooftop at the CitizenM to join my fellow bloggers for cocktails before leaving for the first of many events kicking off Blog Tour NYC.

JillSeidner3

And one of those many events was a cocktail reception at the DXV showroom in Manhattan. The highlight for me was reconnecting with my Blog Tour London Besties (from left): Jennifer, Cheryl, me, and Lynn. It was fun to see the gang!

JillSeidner0

The next day, we started off our morning with a vist to Wanted Design. Why the boys? Well, just out of the car, a dozen girls, and the next thing you know these two boys (who just happen to be standing in front of the signage) end up being asked to stand and smile. Makes for a good picture after all.

JillSeidner14

We spent much of that first day traversing the bustling streets of Manhattan: from Wanted Design to the Kips Bay Showhouse and then to a late afternoon cocktail reception at the Scott Sanders designed Printing Press apartment.

JillSeidner5

On our next morning, we attended a breakfast presentation with Blog Tour NYC sponsor, NousDecor. Here’s me, Veronika, and my fave PR person ever, Andrew Joseph (Oh the places we’ve been together! LA, London, NYC, Vegas!)

JillSeidner8

Hitting the streets: the BlogTourettes gather for a selfie before making our way up to ICFF (L-R: me, Annabel, Ann, Kimberly).

JillSeidner6

While at ICFF, it was fun to see my LA friend Ginna exhibiting for Woven Accents. Here’s us standing in front of a Gregory Siff designed rug.

JillSeidner16

That evening, we attended a party at MOMA in conjunction with ICFF. Our group, L-R: Susan, Kathy, Carole, Ann, Anya, me, Iris, Annabel, and Linda.

JillSeidner12

The next morning, with gorgeous weather, we took a walk on the High Line with our friend (rather, like family) Martha of Blog Tour supporter, Mr. Steam. Here’s a street view from the High Line.

JillSeidner15

Taking a little detour from Blog Tour NYC activities, Veronika and I met up with Messe Frankfurt for a late brunch at The High Line Hotel. It was fun to see this very charming hotel, too.

JillSeidner9

That same evening, we had an intimate dinner hosted by DXV at Bar Americain restuarant in Manhattan. (With Annabel and Anya both to my right.)

JillSeidner10

In between amazing events and dinners, there was free time to wander the streets of NYC. On our final day, fellow Blog Tour NYC pal Ann and I made our way through the streets of Lower Manhattan: checking out the Bowery and SoHo as we made our way to the New York Design Center for an afternoon visit to the Christopher Guy showroom. Here’s a view from Washington Square Park on an absolute gorgeous day.

JillSeidner13

Our final and farewell dinner was a multi-course (and multi-wine tasting) sit down dinner (along with a tour!) of the L’Ecole International Culinary Center. It was quite THE experience and I am craving to go back.

JillSeidnerFinal

And with that, we thank Veronika for everything: #BlogTourNYC inscripted in wood. The hashtag of all hashtags. Thanks for another memorable experience!

The annual Legends of La Cienega kick off party for the La Cienega Design Quarter took place this past week.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 16th Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, CA. The event happens to be produced by a high school friend of mine who works for Jumpline, producers of the annual awards show.

image

On display and on loan from a costume house, were Dorothy’s red heels from the Wizard Of Oz – so neat to see in person! (And apparently my friend Deme had these on her coffee table before returning – ha!)

image

We were fortunate to have access to the VIP reception (celeb hangout), and I happen to catch actress Amy Adams in a flash.

image

Typhanie and I had fun taking selfies in the glamorous old school mirrors at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the event took place.

image

We also saw Mad Men actress, Kiernan Brennan Shipka, mingling before the awards ceremony.

image

Icon Raquel Welch presenting at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.

image

The next day, I attended a post event brunch and panel discussion with several of the recognized and awarded costume designers.

image

The event was hosted by Lacoste.

image

On display were fashion designs by FIDM students representing various film genres.

image

After the symposium was a rooftop brunch (at Siren Studios) with views of Hollywood.

image

Shirley and I enjoying a gorgeous February day in LA (a glimpse of the Hollywood sign was in our backdrop).

And a very fun surprise: seeing our friend artist Gregory Siff art on the ground level entrance of Siren Studios.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.

Nespresso recently opened their first ever flagship store here in Los Angeles, a boutique on Beverly Drive. With locations in both NYC and San Francisco, it was great to welcome a retail space here in LA. I happen to be a huge fan on Nespresso (as my Instagram and Twitter followers may know) and was excited when I received an invite to the exclusive launch party.

image

The new concept store features a slightly different vibe than previous stores. Contemporary furnishings with lighter finishes, such as the flooring, are all part of the new direction. The Beverly Hills location features a lounge area, an espresso bar for ordering drinks and food, and a retail space for purchases.

image

Nespresso welcomes tastings, a bar set up with machines is the perfect spot to come in and sample while browsing the assortment of products.

image

The colorful array of capsules are eye-catching (& make for a great display!).

image

At the opening night party I got to experience the great indoor / outdoor feel of the open space – perfect for Southern California weather!

image

The launch party was a packed crowd complete with performances by David Foster and American Idol alum Michael Johns. Along with Tim Gunn, who we had the pleasure of meeting, hosted the night’s event.

image

If you happen to be in Beverly Hills, be sure to check out the new Nespresso Boutique at 320 N Beverly Drive.
