BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The CA Boom Design Show (www.caboomshow.com) is North America’s only multi-discipline non-traditional design trade fair exhibition combining the highest caliber of architects, designers and design manufacturers on the West Coast. The show brings together the best of modern and contemporary design and architecture in a unique exhibit, conference, and tour format. A favorite place for incubating companies and products to make their debuts, the show draws both the design trade and design savvy consumer, and has become a must-attend event for specifiers of quality design and architecture.
CA Boom’s signature feature, its architectural home tours, take place throughout the entire event with shuttles that leave from the venue. Attendees can tour five residential projects each day and meet the actual architects and designers in the process. “The CA Boom home tours have set an industry precedent of establishing an environment where potential clients can effectively and efficiently interact with five top-notch architects in the span of two to three hours,” says Charles Trotter, CA Boom Design Show creator and executive producer.
A special tour will be on this year’s schedule: The Stahl House Tour. Case Study House #22 (aka the Stahl House), is a modernist home in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California, that was designed by Pierre Koenig. Part of the Case Study program, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture in Los Angeles during the 20th century. One of the original family members will be on site, and part of the proceeds for this tour will go toward maintenance and restoration of the property.
