The West Coast Style Show, which promoters describe as a show geared towards upscale art and design, will bring together collections of paintings, sculptures, accessories and antiques, for an upcoming expo at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, 1855 Main St., Santa Monica.
Event hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, November 11th and 12th. There is no admittance after 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 12th. Tickets are $10.
A preview night, benefiting Lupus International, is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, November 10th. Tickets are $125 each or two for $200.
The show was held in previous years under the name the Los Angeles Interior Design and Antiques Show.
The mission of the new West Coast Style Show is to present home design that has a uniquely West Coast flair — meaning mellow, yet avant-garde, organizers say. The show also intends to show items that stand apart from prepackaged designs mass-produced and sold in chain stores nationwide, according to Caskey & Lees, which produces the event.
West Coast Style will feature about 60 national dealers of art, accessories and furniture, many of which typically only do business with design professionals and not the general public. Exhibitors from Chile, Japan and various states nationwide are scheduled to attend this year’s event.
Vignettes of varying styles and time periods will be set up throughout the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium by designers such as Bauxmont Flynn Sagrera and Brazil Design, Richard W. Herb Interiors, Kahi Lee of HGTV and Padua/DK Designs.
The expo will also include a lecture series with “How to Work with a Designer from Start to Finish” by Lesley Kushner of the International Interior Design Association at 11:30 a.m.; “Indoor and Outdoor Living: Utilize Space and Maximize Good Weather!” with Sarah Lynch, executive editor of California Home and Design Magazine at 1 p.m.; and “An Inside Look at O at Home: Ideas to Print,” with Suzanne Slesin, home decorating and design editor at O at Home Magazine, at 3 p.m. Saturday, November 11th.
Lectures continue on Sunday, November 12th, with “Buyer’s Remorse,” with Vanessa Valore of Valore Ventures at noon; and “Feng Shui for the 21st Century: How to Create Healing Environments in a Changing World, with Angi Ma Wong at 2 p.m.
Admission to lectures is included as part of the general admission charge.
