#DIEMevent Instagram Takeover

With DIEM 2014 right around the corner, we asked a few of the inspirational minds getting involved with the event to takeover the West Hollywood Design District Instagram each week. Thanks to this fun collaboration, our followers get an exclusive look into what the District has to offer, through the very eyes of its creative influencers. So get excited for DIEM taking place November 14, 2014–where you’ll get to experience all of what’s been captured here, and more. To see the rest of our feed, follow us on Instagram: @wehodesigndistrict #DIEMevent

“Every designer in LA shops the PDC with it’s fabric and furniture powerhouse showrooms, but it’s also home to a bunch of great art galleries (and a branch of @moca). This sculpture by #maurabendett via designLAb caught my eye earlier this week while picking up fabric samples.” 


+ “As an interior designer, not only do I shop the WHDD several days a week, I also have a rug collaboration with @wovenaccents, a carpet gallery in the heart of the district. Shown here is my fields rug, part of my #shapescollection cowhides and it’s under an installation…come see it at #diemevent on Nov 14th! Always exciting events and collaborations in the WeHo Design District!”
+ “@maison21 loves a hexagon  so of course we fell hard for these dimensional hexes at @filmoreclark. the great thing about working with someone as knowledgeable as lee at @filmoreclark is all the glaze, size and color options she is able to recommend … I’m not limited in my tile knowledge, but have her expertise to guide me, an advantage offered in all the trade showrooms of the @wehodesigndistrict.”


+ “@maison21 loves color, @maison21 loves pattern,@maison21 loves @nickyrisingltd #diemevent”
+ ” Of course, design is also social in the @wehodesigndistrict– here is @lord_mactavish@pegdesigner and @maison21 celebrate the opening of thomas’ new #christianliagre showroom.
