The next was Co-Working - The Pros And Cons Of Sharing A Work Space and this was probably one of about three topics I thoroughly enjoyed. Helped that I managed to get front row seating but I appreciated the all-female panel with some extremely experienced resources in the co-working space voicing their take on the whole movement. This was held at LUXURY LIVING and boy did they have a beautiful showroom space. They should turn it into a co-working space, I’d go sit there and work all day!
Co-mmerce - Is LA Art An Industry, Yet? was hosted at THE RUG COMPANY which I was so alert for and all coffeed up I could have been jumping right out of my front row seat for all I know. The speakers were all experts in the field and brought their unique experiences to the discussion – a well-selected group of industry professionals on a topic that is relevant and current. Also big thanks to The Rug Company for the beautiful bags and notecards to attendees!
The headliner of all sessions I guess you could call it was the last one titled Co-llaboration - Making Shelter Magic: War Stories From The Field With Mayer Rus, West Coast Editor, and Michael Reynolds, Design Editor, from Architectural Digest – the sponsor for the event. Held at DESIGN WITHIN REACH, this was a hilarious session with both industry leaders sharing stories of shooting for covers and features, working with animals, working in the desert and sharing the amazing stories behind some of the highlights that were scrolling on the presentation screen onsite. This was also the location for the closing party for the event.
