Taking place October 22-25 at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, the show offers attendees the opportunity to experience the best in modern design for the home in a range of categories from appliances and lighting to furniture.
"At Jenn-Air we believe that creating beautifully designed products for beautifully designed spaces is just the tip of the iceberg," notes Brian Maynard, Jenn-Air marketing director. "We're looking to engage with consumers and designers to understand why they make certain choices, what these choices reflect about them as individuals, and ways that design can build connections with those around them."
