The Best of CA Boom '08

From handmade to high tech, CA Boom showcased a range of unique products this year.

Custom furniture makers exhibited some amazing pieces like the ones shown here. The credenza by Sidecar is fabulous because it has smooth gliding sliding doors, mesh wood panels on the back that provide great ventilation and can easily be removed for cord management, and has plenty of space inside for media equipment.

The kitchen cabinetry by A Handmade Home is the definition of quality and has great features, including small cookbook niches so all your favorite recipes are at your fingertips.
The Hollywood coffee table by Studio Roeper had a beautiful brass inlay and an unbelievable finish. Keep all of these artists in mind for you next project. It’s not as expensive as you might think to get custom furniture and the quality and detail is unmatched.

Next up, the rugs from Della Robia. Check out all the plush patterns and any combination of colors can be ordered. The roses rug was especially showstopping. It's like walking on a masterpiece!



The Modern Parenting Zone featured some clever children's products like this bunk bed from Color and Life. It had smart storage built into the staircase and a large drawer to store bedding. Other products reflected more of a sophisticated look, like the desk from Duc Duc with a very kid friendly surface and say goodbye to the Disney princess bedsheets and opt for bedding from Boodalee. It's cheerful and age appropriate, but still designed with a stylish parent in mind.


Wallter has a new product on the market I hadn't seen yet. We all know and love the paintable, stickable shapes they introduced a few years ago for walls. Now, they have mobiles where you can adjust the shapes along the cord and customize the look.
Last, but not least, check out this clever stool from Go.Lo.Gor.Sky.Studio (Try to say that 3 times fast!) Flip the stool on different sides to create different surfaces. One way it's a rocker, the other way it's a stable seat with a backrest, and the other side allows it to be used as a small end table. Available in red and white, also.
