We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Dwell on Design exhibition this past weekend. We chatted with really nice designers and shopowners, saw some great new products and prototypes, and our peek inside some cool prefab abodes made us want a little patch of land with our very own Airstream.

We've included a few photos here, and we'll be blogging more exhibitors and products over the next few days -- including this Christopher Deam-designed prefab dwelling.

Oh, and if you just can't wait, check out the Dwell on Design video. (Thanks, mod*mom!)

Modern Bamboo's custom bench (you can also see people trying out the Spring Chairs -- they're so comfortable, and everyone intuitively tests out the gentle rocking motion)
