It's unheard of. Never before in the history of all time has there been such a cooperative creative collaboration. (Okay, maybe just the history of the home show). Five established design entities combining their talents creating one incredible display. The only instructions were to developing solutions that are very cool, truly affordable, and based on an urban sized lot. We want to show how anyone can have an ultimate Northwest lifestyle. It's just about finding the the right house, the right designs, to find the right solutions!
- The anchor of this modern experience is the ideabox fortino, the 1,250 SF 2BR/2BA urban modern "loft-like" living green & energy efficient prefab. The house is beyond compare, and represents a new direction in prefab. See the entire ideabox lineup at http://www.ideabox.us
- The fortino house is being furnished by Crate&Barrel and will featuring furnishings from their modern collection. With their talented designers and an open floor plan, the resulting interiors promise to inspire at prices that will surprise you. Visit http://www.crateandbarrel.com
- The exterior design is led by Schultz & Long and features water collection systems; outdoor fire displays; a series of elevated outdoor "rooms"; walls defined by plates of steel and glass; integrated use of metal and pavers: surrounded by grasses and trees. View examples of their work at http://www.schultzandlong.com
What you will see will amaze you. Imagine a darkened room lit only with rafter mounted projection lamps focusing on key features on the floor below. Imagine lush landscapes with water, outdoor fire features, mature trees and plants. And in the middle of it all find a fully furnished modern house.
The ideabox blog will be featuring more detail as the show approaches. Interviews with the design team, examples of what will be on display, and the newest products from ideabox!
