Located in the South Coast Collection shopping center, Costa Mesa’s premier destination for design and interiors, the Studio is more than 20,000 square feet, making it one of the largest DWR stores in the country. The space is centered around a design hub with our Light Cloud lighting installation and 30-foot-long walls of upholstered tiles showcasing the hundreds of available choices for our collections. You’re invited to explore eight “houses” of stylistically related rooms for Living, Dining, Bedroom and Workspace, which are sure to provide inspiration for the many ways to live with modern. You can also take a stroll down two hallways of dining and living solutions, where you can test-drive 50 different dining chairs, and test-lounge our upholstery collections. DWR veteran Curtis Lee and his staff of design experts invite you to stop by for this elevated and accessible modern shopping experience.
DWR STUDIO EVENT
Modern Living outside Southern CaliforniaTuesday, March 11, 6–8pm
Lauren Weiss Bricker on American modernism.
Join us in welcoming Lauren Weiss Bricker, Ph.D., to the Studio. Bricker is an author and architecture professor at Cal Poly, Pomona. This accomplished scholar will lead an exploration of how modernism has evolved outside Southern California. By the late 1920s, modernist innovators R.M. Schindler, Richard Neutra and others were already well established here in the West. But elsewhere, architects and their clients were considerably more wary of the modernist aesthetic. Who were the pioneers? How did they address their clients’ desire to “live modern,” while accommodating regional tastes? Join like-minded modernists for refreshments, mingling and stimulating discussion.
