The featured speakers were on point, the booths were meticulously styled, and the design bloggers/influencers were all thumbs on fire with #dwellondesign.  Dwell on Design proved yet again why it is the premiere annual design show on the west coast.  However, no matter what new technology is introduced or which design icon is doing a book signing, the main draw remains the fully constructed prefab homes that grace the showroom floor year after year.

This year there was only one home but it did not disappoint.  Method Homes presented a custom prefab from their brand new Option Series, a design collaboration between Method and  Grouparchitect.  The house was thoughtfully staged by star interior designer Jennifer Farrell who utilized large, bold wall coverings and natural textures to create a truly organic modern experience.  The focal point of the main living space was a 5′ wide frameless modern fireplace by Netherlands-based fireplace designers, Element4.  The Modore 140, linear direct-vent fireplace, featured a unique concrete style interior for an added textural appeal.
