LOS ANGELES — Award-winning international designer and TV host Jamie Durie has partnered with Dwell on Design to serve as curator of Dwell Outdoor at Dwell on Design L.A. 2016, taking place June 24-26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Dwell Outdoor—a 30,000 sq. ft. showcase featuring contemporary outdoor furnishings and prefab buildings—is designed to transport attendees to an innovative outdoor setting, and has been a favorite stop on the show floor since its inception in 2008.
Using collections that range from Danish-inspired teak furniture and vertical gardens, to transterior textures, Durie will deliver his unique philosophy of “taking the outdoors in, and the indoors out” by designing this one-of-a-kind show feature, infusing exhibitor installations with hundreds of plants and trees – crafting a lush, green oasis.
Dana Teague, Informa Global Exhibitions Vice President, said:
“Jamie Durie is an internationally acclaimed designer, television host, and best-selling author, making him the perfect partner for Dwell Outdoor. Our attendees – trade professionals and design enthusiasts alike – will enjoy seeing the visionary concepts and beauty he brings to any outdoor setting.”
Dwell Outdoor will feature hand-picked full-size prefab homes, equipped with the latest solar power and water-efficient fixtures, sustainable home decor and furniture, an Outdoor Cinema, and the infamous Beer Garden, where attendees can meet, relax, and enjoy a beverage.
Durie grew to fame while hosting 52+ design shows seen around the world in more than 100 countries, including Outback Nation, The Outdoor Room, Top Design, and Australia’s Best Backyard.
Jamie Durie said:
“I’m honored to be working with my friends at Dwell, curating Dwell on Design 2016. I’ve been a fan of Dwell since its inception and I’m excited to bring some fresh design and a little fun to Dwell Outdoor 2016.”
Durie is also the author of ten best-selling books: Patio—Garden Design and Inspiration, The Outdoor Room, Outside, The Source Book (Editions 1 and 2), Outdoor Kids, Inspired, Jamie Durie’s The Outdoor Room and 100 Gardens, Edible Garden Design. He is currently writing his first title on Interior Design to be released in the USA soon.
The curation of Dwell Outdoor will coincide with the grand opening of Durie’s first U.S.-based flagship retail store in Los Angeles.
Dwell Outdoor is included free of charge in all Dwell on Design registration packages.
