Dwell on Design 2010
We were super excited to share our Woolly love for plants and gardening with the thousands of inquisitive visitors we met at Dwell on Design this past weekend! Inside the Los Angeles Convention Center, we planted a living wall chock full of native grasses and yuccas, a perfect pairing for the start of summer!
Our booth was conveniently located next to the Wine Australia tasting garden! In the shade of an ancient olive tree, people perused pockets with their toes luxuriating on the realistic artificial grass! For so many people, it was their first time seeing pockets in person, and the first thing (just about) everyone did was reach out and feel the 100% recycled plastic felted wool.
It was a sheer joy to see their eyes light up as the proverbial lightbulb turn on in their heads and they realized a couple pockets can turn that ugly cinderblock wall into a green oasis! We spoke to so many amazing people with great ideas for pockets, from backyard restorations to Juvenile Halls to Recovery Centers for Injured Military Veterans.
The rest of the show was totally inspiring as well! Our Woolly friends at Potted in Atwater hung their new circular hanging pots all around the show!

An Ellipitcal Rocking Bed!
A bizarre rotating mirror machine!
The Heath Ceramics Truck brought a new line of tiles!
It wouldn’t be a Dwell event without Prefab Homes!
After 3 days on my feet, I couldn’t keep my eyes off this piece of machinery, possibly the greatest hammock ever invented!
